Vietnam's benchmark VN Index ended flat on Monday due partly to a lack of supportive news but volume edged up slightly as interest went to shares in the energy and real estate sectors, analysts and a trader said.
Shares of Petrovietnam Drilling and Well Services Company was the top riser, advancing 3.2 percent.
Among the stocks of real estate firms, Tu Liem Urban Development Co closed up 2.92 percent at 14,100 dong
($0.67) each, having extended an uptrend that began in late September.
"Investors expect a warming up on the real estate market," a Hanoi-based trader said, citing the interest in NTL shares.
Volume jumped 53.2 percent to 65 million shares on Monday and analysts expected the index to rise in the next two months,
given a positive economic outlook.

Thai stocks fell the most in six weeks on Monday as escalating opposition against the political amnesty bill spurred late selling, while most others in Southeast Asia followed Asian shares lower.
The benchmark SET index closed down 2.9 percent, its sharpest drop since Sept. 23. It also ended below the key 1,400 mark for the first time since Sept. 30, and erased all its gain so far this year.
The exchange saw heavy selling volume in tourism-related shares, led by airport operator Airports of Thailand, which closed down 8.3 percent, the lowest in more than a month.
Finance Minister Kittirat Na Ranong is worried the protests would hurt the tourism industry and the broader domestic economy in the fourth quarter.
"The fourth quarter is normally a good quarter as it is the start of a new fiscal year and tourist visits are a bit high towards the end of the year," he told reporters.
The political worries also hit other Thai assets. The baht weakened, while five-year bond yields rose to 3.63 percent, their highest since Oct. 1. ID:nL3N0IP0BL
Stocks in Indonesia and Malaysia edged lower amid foreign selling ahead of a market holiday in both countries on Tuesday.
Jakarta's Composite Index edged down 0.2 percent, after a 3.2 percent slide in the previous week, with foreign investors withdrawing a net 465,168 million rupiah ($41.05 million), Thomson Reuters data showed.
Malaysia's key index inched 0.2 percent lower after a modest 0.4 loss in the week earlier. The Malaysian bourse said foreign investors sold shares worth a net 37 million ringgit ($11.66 million).
Stocks in Singapore and Vietnam ended nearly flat, while those in the Philippines eased 0.6 percent, with MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan a shade softer ahead of central bank meetings in Europe and U.S. payrolls report.
