Vietnam index ends down 0.3 pct, bargain hunting emerges

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   fell for the sixth straight session on Friday, posting its biggest weekly decline since the week ended May 9 as
investors extended margin selling and on global worries, while bargain hunting emerged at lower levels.
The index closed down 0.32 percent at 585.28 on Friday. For the week, it dropped 5.25 percent as investors repaid loans to brokers after margin trading ratios surged at some securities firms, pulling the index down to the lowest since July 11 and breaching multiple support levels.
 Foreign investors were net sellers of Vietnamese equities in all sessions this week as they cut risk exposure amid mounting fears of a slowdown in global growth and Vietnam's rising credit default swap that reached the highest since Aug. 14 on Thursday .
But bargain hunting in late trade saved the index from a steep fall, with winners outperforming decliners by two to one.
 "Margin pressure has subdued, and some stocks fell to attractive levels so long-term investors joined the market," said analyst Tran Hai Yen of Bao Viet Securities.
 Here is a snapshot of the VN Index    at the close

SE Asia Stocks-Indonesia outperforms on fuel subsidy cut plan

Southeast Asian stock markets mostly gained on Friday, with Indonesia touching a more than one-week high, amid easing political tensions and
president-elect Joko Widodo's plan to raise the prices of subsidised fuel.
Jakarta's composite index   closed up 1.6 percent at 5,028.95, the highest since Oct. 7, with shares of large caps such as Astra International    among actively-traded stocks by turnover.  

Selective buying lifted shares of Bank Rakyat Indonesia  and Bank Mandiri  amid the start of  reporting season for listed banks.
The index notched up a 1.3-percent gain on the week, after a modest 0.3 percent rise during the week before.

Philippine shares traded weak on Friday, with the key index  falling 0.4 percent after two sessions of gains. It dropped 2.3 percent on the week, a fourth straight week of losses, and underperforming most other regional bourses.  

Stock exchange data showed net foreign outflow worth 10.08 billion peso ($225 million) on Friday, with shares of Aboitiz Power  and Ayala Land   taking a hit.
 Other markets posted losses on the week amid heightening concerns about the health of the global economy. Singapore   fell 1.7 percent, for the fifth week, while Thailand  and Malaysia   were both down more than 1 percent.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber
