Vietnam's VN Index  closed down 0.11 percent on Tuesday against a rise in regional sharemarkets as foreigners continued selling and local investors traded cautiously, analysts said.
Commercial banks led the fall with Vietcombank  plunging 4 percent, Eximbank   dropping 1.4 percent and Vietinbank down 1 percent. Real estate firms also lost, with Hoang Anh Gia Lai  <HAG.HM>  down 1 percent and VinGroup   0.8 percent.
Investors were trading cautiously, awaiting clarity on whether the United States would take military action in troubled Syria before making trading decisions, said Doan Thi Anh Nguyet, an analyst at Saigon-Hanoi Securities.
  Trading volume was 29 million shares, below the five-day average of 36.9 million shares, according to Ho Chi Minh City

Most Southeast Asian markets ended higher on Tuesday as investors loaded up on commodities-related stocks amid a spate of upbeat economic data
across the globe while Indonesian coal miners gained as a rise in the dollar bolstered earnings outlook.

The region saw rotational play into commodity and energy stocks, including Golden Agri-Resources Ltd, Tenaga
Nasional and Thai Oil, on optimism about the global economic outlook.

Trading volume was relatively weak across exchanges, mostly below a full-day average over the past 30 sessions, reflecting a
lack of conviction among risk-averse investors as caution persisted on weak economic data in Southeast Asia.
Indonesian shares outperformed, with Jakarta's Composite Index  closing up 1.5 percent, regaining some of the 2.2
percent drop on Monday, with shares in PT Perusahaan Gas Negara Tbk up 5.8 percent after a 4.6 percent loss on Monday.
Investors piled into coal miners, including Adaro Energy, as the dollar's appreciation against the rupiah
provides benefits for coal plays.
The Indonesian rupiah weakened past the psychologically important level of 11,000 per dollar on Tuesday, for the first time in more than four years, as the market
fretted after the government reported a record monthly trade deficit.
The Philippine composite index ended up 0.4 percent, holding up above the key 6,000 closing level for a third
session, with its economic outperformance underpinning the broader market sentiment.
Philippine stocks remained relatively high, trading at around 17 times forward price-to-earnings multiple versus 22
times at the peak of the market in May, said Manila-based strategist Luz Lorenzo of Maybank ATR Kim Eng.
Luz expected the market rise to 7,000 levels toward the end of the year. The index target reflected 19 times forward
"...the economy is also on a higher growth trajectory, with GDP expansion in the last six quarters exceeding 6 percent. This
has not happened since the eighties, which is how far back quarterly data goes. We believe such growth is sustainable and
justifies the higher market PER," Luz said.
Malaysian shares edged up 0.4 percent after Monday's 0.6 percent loss. Thai stocks retreated, down 0.6 percent after a
surge of more than 2 percent on Monday.
Stocks in Singapore closed nearly flat, reversing earlier gains, after having risen on Monday. Stocks in Vietnam
edged down 0.1 percent as trade resumed after a market holiday on Monday.

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
