Vietnam index closes down 0.3 pct, eye funds' review

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  <.VNI>  ended down 0.34 percent on Monday as selling increased near the session's end while investors looked at the portfolio restructuring of two exchange-traded funds'.
Hanoi-based lender Vietcombank   led the losses with a 2.46 percent fall, followed by property firm Vingroup  that declined 1.8 percent.
 "The index is likely to fluctuate largely in high volume this week when two ETFs review their portfolios," said analyst Nguyen Hoang Phuong of Ho Chi Minh City Securities.
 The Market Vectors Vietnam   and db x-trackers FTSE Vietnam , two major foreign ETFs that trade in Vietnamese equities, are scheduled to end their quarterly portfolio restructurings by Friday.
"Many investors are waiting for the ETFs to finish their review before making any further investment," Phuong said.
He recommended buying when the index corrects, similar to the Monday session, given the positive long-term outlook for the market.
Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close

SE Asia Stocks -Singapore at 1-month low as property shares fall

Southeast Asian stock markets were flat to weaker on Monday as investors weighed in the risks of weak China's factory output data in August and the direction of U.S. monetary policy from the Federal Reserve meeting on Wednesday.
Singapore was an underperformer, with the Straits Times Index   sliding 1 percent to 3,312.47, the lowest close since Aug. 14.  
Property shares fell, led down by CapitaLand , after data showed sales of private homes by developers in Singapore in August slumped 43 percent from a year earlier.
China's factory output grew at the weakest pace in nearly  six years in August while growth in other key sectors also cooled, raising fears the world's second-largest economy may be at risk of a sharp slowdown unless Beijing takes fresh stimulus measures.
The Philippines   witnessed a net foreign selling worth of 805 million peso ($18.18 million), Indonesia saw 578 billion rupiah ($48.47 million) foreign selling and Malaysia's net foreign selling hit 225 million ringgit ($69.77 million).

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
