Vietnam index rises 1.2 pct, volume nears 2-mth high

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  rose 1.24 percent in a robust trading session to its highest close since Aug. 14 on Thursday, buoyed by gains in most big-cap shares.
Net buying by foreigners in the previous session after three straight offloads lifted sentiment on Thursday, analysts said.

Overall volume jumped to 194 million shares, a level unseen since July 10.
Vietcombank  VCB.HM , Vietnam's biggest lender by value, led the risers to increase 3.76 percent, while top insurer BaoViet Holdings  BVH.HM  jumped 5.88 percent to close above a two-month high and property firm Vingroup  VIC.HM  advanced 2.35 percent.
Military Bank  MBB.HM  fell 1.95 percent in its highest volume of more than two months on Thursday, the first session that foreigners were allowed to buy up to 40.6 million MBB shares, or 10 percent of the bank's new share issue.   
The issue would open room for overseas investors to acquire more shares of the bank, run by Vietnam's army.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  .VNI  at the close

SE Asia Stocks - Most flat to weaker as energy shares retreat

Most Southeast Asian stock markets were flat to weaker on Thursday as quick profit-taking hit energy shares and investors lowered risky holdings ahead of a quarterly reporting season.
Singapore's Straits Times Index  .STI  erased early gains to close 0.5 percent down, the Thai SET index  .SETI  and the Philippine index  .PSI  drifted into negative territory, reversing earlier gains on the day.
Shares in Malaysia  .KLSE  and Indonesia  .JKSE  both ended slightly higher. Vietnam  .VNI , an outperformer in the region, rose 1.2 percent in strong volume thanks to gains in most big-cap shares.   
Losers in the region included shares of Thailand's PTT Exploration and Production  PTTEP.BK , Indonesia's Perosahaan Gas Negara  PGAS.JK  and Singapore's Sembcorp Marine  SCMN.SI , which all gave up gains from Wednesday.
Oil prices edged up on Thursday, nudged higher by a weaker dollar, while investors temporarily overlooked an unexpectedly large rise in U.S. inventory levels that could quickly push the market back below $50 a barrel, analysts said.  
In Bangkok, the banking subindex  .SETB  inched up 0.2 percent, though trimming some gains in early trade, ahead of the announcement of July-September earnings releases expected from Friday through next week.
Krung Thai Bank  KTB.BK  fell more than 1 percent at one point on a prospect of weak earnings for the quarter due to rising loan loss provision regarding Sahaviriya Steel Industries'  SSI.BK  bad debts, brokers said.

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
