Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed up 0.55 percent at 499.79 points on Tuesday as some blue chips rallied and investors were also interested in buying small and mid-cap firms, analysts said.
Shares of real estate firm Tan Tao Investment and Industry Corp climbed 1.61 percent and were traded the most, with 6.4 million shares changing hands. HAGL Co was also up at 0.9 percent.
"Investors bought shares in the construction and real estate sectors as they expect solid earnings in the last quarter," said analyst Pham Van Khoa at Bao Viet Securities.
The index would rise further, but in a moderate pace because investors' selling demand is still solid, he said.
