Vietnam index ends up 0.7 pct, banks lead

 Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  .VNI  ended up 0.67 percent at the close on Monday after a correction late last week, lifted by several banks and Hoa Phat Group  HPG.HM  due in part to expectations of positive corporate results.
 Hanoi-based Vietcombank  VCB.HM , the country's biggest firm by market value, edged up 0.99 percent, followed by lender VietinBank  CTG.HM  that rallied 1.32 percent and BIDV  BID.HM   with a 2.33-percent rise.
Steel firm Hoa Phat Group advanced 2.89 percent to close at 35,600 dong ($1.63) each, the highest since Jan. 21.
The company's managing board has proposed to raise the net profit target in 2015 by 41 percent to 3.25 trillion dong, and also set the 2015 dividend at 30 percent, instead of 20 percent earlier, it said in a statement.
Traders expect the index to gain further in coming sessions.

SE Asia Stocks - Most fall; Thai index near 14-month low

Most Southeast Asian stock markets fell more than 1 percent on Monday as selloffs in China and Asian shares prompted investors to cut risk holdings, with the Thai benchmark hitting a near 14-month low after June exports tumbled more than expected.
The Thai SET index  .SETI  fell 1.8 percent to 1,412.55, its lowest close since May 29, 2014, led down by a 1.6 percent drop in shares of mobile phone firm Advanced Info Service  ADVANC.BK , the most actively traded.
Data released by the Commerce Ministry showed the June exports fall was the biggest drop since late 2011, indicating the country's weaker currency is not yet helping fire up the country's traditional long-stalled growth engine.
Jakarta's composite index  .JKSE  ended the day down 1.8 percent at the lowest close since April 2014, while the Philippines  .PSI  snapped a four-day rising streak, retreating 1.5 percent.
 Singapore  .FTSTI  fell for a fifth day to a two-week closing low and Malaysia  .KLSE  posted a fourth straight day of losses.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  fell 1.7 percent amid worries over China and investors braced for a Federal Reserve meeting that might take another small step toward lifting U.S. interest rates.
