Vietnam index hits 12-wk high, most big caps gain
Vietnam's VN Index .VNI rose 1.48 percent to close at 611.71 points, the highest level in 12 weeks, with most shares gaining ground led by food, beverages and tobacco stocks.
Dairy products maker Vinamilk VNM.HM , the country's biggest listed firm, climbed 5.13 percent to an all-time closing high of 123,000 dong ($5.51).
VNM shares jumped after local media said Fraser and Neave Ltd FRNM.SI plans to buy the state's 45-percent stake in a $4 billion deal.
F&N, which currently owns 11 percent of Vinamilk through its dairy subsidiary, said it had not made a formal offer with regard to purchasing the government's stake.
Insurer BaoViet Holdings BVH.HM soared 6.78 percent to over three-month high while technology firm FPT Corp FPT.HM also rallied 6.06 percent to the highest level since 2008.
A total of 116.5 million shares changed hands, slightly above the five-day average of 110.84 million.

SE Asia Stocks - Most gain; Indonesia near 1-wk high
Most Southeast Asian stock markets ended higher on Tuesday, with the Indonesian benchmark climbing for a second day as domestic investors continued to
tiptoe back, but stocks in Thailand retreated as investors locked in quick gains.
Jakarta's composite index .JKSE climbed 1.5 percent to a near-one-week high in thin volume, which was 83 percent the 30-day average.
Domestic investors were net buyers of big-caps such as Bank Rakyat Indonesia BBRI.JK and Bank Mandiri BMRI.JK , while the overall stock market posted net foreign sales for a fifth day,
worth 170 billion rupiah ($12.55 million).
The Thai SET index .SETI erased early gains to end a tad lower, after having advanced over the past two days. Domestic institutions unloaded shares for the first time in three days,
stock exchange data showed.
Stocks in Singapore .STI ended a five-day losing streak while Malaysia .KLSE posted its first gain in seven days. The Philippines .PSI extended Monday's rebound while Vietnam
.VNI recovered from the earlier session's weakness.
Brokers in the region said they expected a limited upside in sharemarkets near-term due to unexciting corporate earnings and a murky earnings outlook.
Asian stocks rose on Tuesday helped by buoyant U.S. markets and recent data that indicated the global economy may have
turned a corner, though wary central banks signalled a recovery may be anything but durable.
