Vietnam's benchmark VN Index rose 0.65 percent on Wednesday as buying demand lent support, partly due to expectations of good corporate earnings.
Analysts said the bad debt purchase by the central bank-run asset management firm and solid third-quarter earnings of big cap firms expected in coming days have helped reinforce investors' positive sentiment.
Foreigners have been net buyers so far in October, having switched from net sellers between June and September, data from the exchange showed.

The index was briefly lifted beyond 500 points, and volume rose to nearly 70 million shares, compared with a five-day average of 56 million shares.

Most blue chips gained. Real estate firm HAGL Co led the chart with a 3.74-percent rise, followed by Hanoi-based Vietcombank gaining 3.11 percent.  

The index could exceed 510 points within the next two weeks, said analyst Nguyen Hoang Phuong at Ho Chi Minh City Securities.

Malaysian shares hit a three-week closing high, while most other Southeast Asian stocks eked out small gains on Wednesday in light-to-moderate volume as investors waited for a deal that would end the U.S. budget stalemate.
Trading flagged across regional exchanges, with market players putting money in laggard counters such as Malaysia's RHB Capital, which led the gainers on Kuala Lumpur's composite index.
Local institutions bought shares worth a net 112 million ringgit ($35.21 million), offsetting foreign investors that were net sellers of Malaysian shares for a seventh straight session, the bourse said.

Among the weak spots, Bangkok's SET index and Jakarta's composite index both dropped 0.6 percent as large caps such as Siam Commercial Bank  and PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia  retreated after their recent rally.

The Indonesian stock exchange saw foreigners selling shares worth a net 300,054 million rupiah ($26.4 million), according to Thomson Reuters data.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
