Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  closed up 0.15 percent on Monday, the fifth gain in a row, and volume surged to around a 20-week high as investors bet on further gains of blue chips, analysts said.

Liquidity surged to 112.33 million shares, the highest since May 31, as investors restructured portfolios, said analyst Nguyen The Minh from Viet Capital Securities.  

"Investors are shifting money from speculative stocks to shares of big cap firms such as PetroVietNam Gas, Baoviet Holdings , or Ma San Group, in hope for profit from their further rises," Minh said.

Shares of top insurer Baoviet Holdings climbed 1.79 percent, and food producer Ma San Group Corp rose 1.23 percent.
The index could rise to 520 points within two weeks, given the positive outlook of Vietnam's economy and solid earnings of some firms in the third quarter ended September, Minh said.

Vietnam's economic growth is expected to accelerate to 5.4 percent this year and is targeted to quicken further in 2014, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung said on Monday.  
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index

Thai stocks dropped 2.4 percent on Monday, their biggest one-day loss in a month, on selling by institutional investors, while most others in Southeast Asia posted modest gains as investors looked ahead to a deluge of U.S. data for clues to the Federal Reserve's stimulus tapering.
Late selloffs sent the Thai SET index to its lowest close in nearly two weeks, with True Corp eading the fall after a 6.6 percent drop. True Corp shares were the most
actively traded on the exchange.

Banking shares were hit hard after a rally last week which was boosted by favourable quarterly results. Large-cap Kasikornbank Pcl slid 3.6 percent after block trades at lower than market prices.
Domestic institutions sold a net 4 billion baht ($129 million) in Thai shares, while foreign investors bought a net 1.1 billion baht ($35.4 million), a third straight session of buying, data from the stock exchange showed.
Fund flows were mixed across the region.

Malaysia's main index edged up 0.2 percent as the market brought in 15 million ringgit ($4.75 million) of foreign inflows, while Indonesia's benchmark index gained 0.7 percent, led by shares of cigarette firm Gudang Garam.
The Jakarta bourse saw net foreign selling of 36,222 million rupiah ($3.20 million), Thomson Reuters data showed.

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.

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
