Vietnam

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index fell 0.33 percent to close on Thursday, with volume nearing a three-week low as the market lacked supportive news, analysts said.

Volume dropped 11 percent from the previous day to more than 43 million shares, Reuters data showed. The index ended at 497.41 points, having erased gains in the previous two sessions.

"Investors stayed on the sidelines and waited for supporting news, so the index has been fairly flat recently," said analyst Vu Duy Khanh at Navibank Securities.

Shares of Petrovietnam Drilling and Well Services Co lost the most among blue chips, with a 3.05-percent fall, followed by  harmaceutical firm DHG   losing 1.8 percent.

Indonesian shares fell to their lowest in more than two weeks on Thursday while other Southeast Asian stocks mostly slipped into negative territory amid rising risk aversion after the U.S. Federal Reserve's policy outlook was seen as less dovish than expected.  

Jakarta's Composite Index was down 1.4 percent at 4,510.63, its lowest close since Oct. 16. The blue chip index dropped 1.9 percent, with Bank Mandiri and Indocement among the actively traded stocks.
   
The selldown was partly due to profit-taking after listed firms released their July-September earnings, said John Teja, director of broker Ciptadana Securities in Jakarta.

"JCI fell because results were mostly in line or below expectations. Construction and property are doing well this year, but could see a tough year in 2014," he said.

The benchmark rose 4.5 percent on the month, building on a 2.9 percent gain in the previous month.

The region extended its gains for a second month, with the Philippines adding 6.4 percent in October, Southeast Asia's best performer, ahead of Malaysia's 2.2 percent, Singapore's 1.4 percent and Vietnam's  1 percent.

In Bangkok, the SET index  recouped earlier losses, closing up 0.8 percent amid bargain hunting in beaten-down large caps led by Kasikornbank   which jumped 3.3 percent.

The index was up 4.3 percent in October.

Trading was relatively thin amid domestic political tensions as the Thai lower house debated a political amnesty bill on Thursday while anti-government protesters vowed to begin a rally later in the day.

Vietnam

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index edged up 0.4 percent to close at 499.07 points on Wednesday, lifted by buying in some blue chips but investors were cautious ahead of government bond issues, an analyst said.

Shares of PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's biggest listed firm, led the market with a 1.57-percent rise. VietinBank, the country's largest partly private bank in terms of assets, climbed 1.72 percent.

Liquidity was low, with 48.8 million shares traded on the exchange on Wednesday, below the five-day average of 67.9 million shares.

"Investors are cautiously waiting for more supporting news from the National Assembly and the U.S. government," analyst Doan Thi Anh Nguyet at Saigon-Hanoi Securities said.

The Vietnamese government is seeking the assembly's approval to raise an additional 170 trillion dong ($8.06 billion) via bonds to fund investment in the 2014-2016 period, the government said in its web site.
    
The U.S. Federal Reserve will announce its plan of massive bond-buying campaign when it concludes a two-day meeting on Wednesday.

Asean

Thai stocks ended at their lowest in almost four weeks on Wednesday as concerns over political tensions spurred selling while other Southeast Asian stocks edged higher on market expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve would keep its stimulus policy.
   
The Thai SET index underperformed the region, down 1.7 percent at 1,431.12, its lowest close since Oct. 7. Large caps such as Advanced Info Service  <ADVA.BK> , PTT and Shin Corporation were among those actively traded.

"Selling flows from domestic investors were a bit dominant.

The weak sentiment was mainly because of the political situation which outweighed hopes about the Fed's policy," said strategist
Teerawut Kanniphakul of CIMB Securities in Bangkok.

Philippine stocks were among the bright spots in the region amid strong buying interest in a reporting season. The benchmark
index  rose 0.8 percent to a one-week closing high of 6,597.21.

Shares in Bank of the Philippine Islands climbed 3 percent, the third-biggest percentage gainers on the key index.

The bank reported after market close that its net profit for nine months ended September rose 19 percent.
    
Singapore's key Straits Times Index was up 0.7 percent at 3,230.44, its highest close in almost six weeks, amid late buying, tracking the gain in MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan.  

Malaysian stocks were up 0.1 percent, with foreign investors buying shares worth a net $6.2 million while Indonesia edged up 0.3 percent, with foreign investors selling $15.4 million, Thomson Reuters and stock exchange data showed.

ASEAN  ANALYSIS

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
