Following the direction of global equities, Vietnam’s stock market increased broadly as gainers outnumbered losers at a rate of 273/183. Market investment was better as money advanced and stretched out, especially in mid- and small-cap stocks. Today saw the return of the oil and gas group while aviation stocks attracted attention after information about VJC being listed on HoSE. Previously recommended groups, like construction, construction materials, rubber, pharmaceuticals, and fertilizers kept their upward momentum. One negative was profit-taking pressure on lenders, led by VCB, which hampered the market’s uptrend. This may be because of an SBV draft, under which individual and/or institutions’ capital contributions raised from loans to other financial institutions is to be restricted. Overall, the uptrend is still on the way. However, there will be stronger volatilities as the VN-Index and HNX-Index approach 710-715 and 88 points, respectively, due to the fast rotation of money. Therefore, investors should maintain a high stock weight and focus on leading stocks or potentially growing shares.
