Vietnam's benchmark VN Index rose 1.06 percent to close at 497.50 points on Friday, boosted by foreign investors buying blue chips, an analyst said.
Shares of PetroVietNam Gas, Vietnam's largest listed firm, climbed 4.58 percent to 68,500 dong ($3.25) each, the highest since Aug. 27, with more than 2.3 million of GAS were traded, based on Reuters data.

The firm would make a dividend payment in November, which has attracted investors, said analyst Vu Tran Vinh Thuy at Dai
Viet Securities, citing a company statement released on Friday.

Foreign investors were net sellers, with a value of 32.6 billion dong on Friday, exchange data showed.

Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank gained 1.44 percent, Vingroup increased 0.8 percent, and dairy products maker Vinamilk nudged up 0.72 percent.  

Liquidity declined, with 59.7 million shares changing hand, below the five-day average of 74.1 million.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index

Philippine stocks were nearly flat, while Indonesian shares snapped three days of gains on Friday as investors trimmed positions in emerging markets amid rising risk aversion associated with the U.S. government shutdown.  
After a choppy trade, Philippine index ended a tad higher at 6,390.48, up 0.04 percent on the day and a 0.2 percent rise for the week. Moody's sovereign rating upgrade and Asian Development Bank's growth forecast increase lifted market sentiment early in the week.

Selling hit recent large cap gainers such as Ayala Corp, while shares in BDO Unibank rose 1.5 percent on the back of recent Moody's upgrade.
Jakarta's Composite Index was among underperformers, down 0.7 percent on the day and sliding 0.8 percent on the week, the second worst after Singapore's 2.3 percent weekly loss.

Jakarta exchange saw weak trading volume that was around two-thirds of a full-day average over the past 30 sessions as investors stayed on the sidelines ahead of the release of foreign exchange reserve data due later in the day.
