Vietnam index hits 11-wk high on earnings, Fed plan
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index .VNI closed up 1.5 percent on Thursday in its biggest jump since Oct. 6 to a 11-week high, on positive corporate earnings and after the U.S. Federal Reserve kept interest rates steady.
More than half of Vietnamese shares gained, led by the food, beverage and tobacco sector with its representatives Vinamilk VNM.HM .
Shares of the dairy products maker, the country's top firm by market value, ended up 4.39 percent at an all-time high of 119,000 dong ($5.33) each, after Vinamilk said its third-quarter net profit surged 55 percent from a year earlier. u
Property firm Vingroup VIC.HM advanced 3.6 percent to its highest level since September 2014 of 46,000 dong each, after the company announced its plan to raise capital via a share
The Fed's decision to keep interest rates unchanged "has quickly influenced positively on investors' sentiment", FPT Securities said in a report earlier on Thursday.
The index closed at 605.20 points, the highest since Aug. 11, while the previous gain on Oct. 6 of 1.98 percent came following the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership deal.
