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.
