Vietnam index ends down 0.25 pct, GAS erases other gains

Vietnam's VN Index    fell  0.25 percent on Friday, dragged down by a loss in top firm PetroVietNam Gas , but gains in other equities
maintained optimism for further rise in the region's best  performing market this year.
Shares in state-run GAS, which accounts for a fifth of total market value, fell 1.6 percent, while food producer Masan Group  <MSN.HM>  lost 1.18 percent. The number of stocks on the rise was double those that lost, with Petrovietnam Fertilizer and Chemicals Corp  outperforming the market with a 3.86 percent gain, Reuters data showed.
 Shares in DPM, another unit of state energy group Petrovietnam, have jumped 5.4 percent since Wednesday when the company said it would pay a cash dividend of 1,500 dong ($0.07) per stock as its first payment for 2014.
"After a few adjustments, the index will extend rising, especially when companies are closer to their exports season at the year end," said analyst Tran Thang Long of BIDV Securities.
 "Low inflation gives room for further rate cuts, which would lower costs for businesses."
 Analysts expect the index, which closed at 638.65 points on Friday, to face stronger corrections around 650 points before climbing to as high as 680-700 points later this year.
 Vietnamese stocks are the second-cheapest in Southeast Asia right now, with a price-to-earnings ratio of 14.87.

SE Asia Stocks-Philippine shares lead regional gain on week

Philippine stocks hit a 15-month high on Friday, posting their best weekly gain in five months on selective buying in financial shares, while the Thai index rose to near a psychological mark of 1,600, helped by some buying in construction and bank shares.
The Philippine main index   rose almost 1 percent to 7,263.58, its highest close since May 24, 2013. It rose 3 percent on the week, the biggest gain since the week ended April 4, and was the best performer in Southeast Asia.
 Actively-traded stocks included shares of Bank of the Philippine Islands   and Metropolitan Bank & Trust .
 Investors looked forward to possible interest rate hikes at  the Philippine central bank's meeting next week after data early on Friday showed an acceleration in August  inflation.
 The Thai SET index   edged up 0.3 percent, rebounding from a modest fall on Thursday and closing at 1,584.32, a level last hit on May 29, 2013. It extended its gains for a fifth straight week, adding 1.5 percent.
Shares seen as reaping the benefits of local economic recovery led the gainers, including cement maker TPI Polene , which jumped 6.2 percent and Siam Commercial Bank , which climbed 1.3 percent.
 All the bourses in the region ended the week higher, with Indonesia    up 1.6 percent while Singapore ,
Malaysia   and Vietnam   rose modestly.

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
