Market rises as cheap stocks go on sale

In Uncategorized on November 5, 2009 at 10:16 am

Vietnam’s benchmark VN-Index surged Thursday after three losing days in a row after investors realized stocks were cheap enough to buy.

The index, which tracks 180 companies and four mutual funds on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange, rose 18.01 points, 3.35 percent, to close 555.54. Trading dropped, with 57.3 million shares worth VND2.5 trillion (US$140 million) changed hands.

Many companies on the city bourse have dropped around 30 percent compared to the record high prices of the year, drawing investors to return.

On the index, gains outnumbered declines by 176 to 7 and two were unchanged.

Masan Group (MSN), a HCM City-based food processor, marked its first trading day on the Southern market as the biggest winner, selling at VND43,200.

Cadovimex Seafood Import Export Processing Joint Stock Co. (CAD), based in the Mekong Delta province of Ca Mau, came next, followed by Phuoc Hoa Rubber Joint Stock Co. (PHR) in Binh Duong Province neighboring HCMC.

Vietnam Export Import Bank, or Eximbank (EIB,) returned to the spot of most active shares with 2.98 million shares traded on the city bourse.

Saigon Commercial Bank, or Sacombank (STB), followed with nearly 2.75 million shares changing hands and the city based-Thanh Cong Garment and Textile Group (TCM) with nearly 2.7 million shares.

Saigon Securities’ fund unit, known as SSI Vision Fund, has cut its stake in the Southern Seed Corp. (SSC), a Vietnamese producer of crop seeds for farmers, to 10.9 percent from 12.08 percent, according to a statement on the exchange’s website.

Meanwhile, Lam Son Sugar Joint Stock Co. (LSS), a sugar and industrial alcohol producer, plans to build two resorts in the northern province of Thanh Hoa, where the company is based, CEO and chairman Le Van Tam told Bloomberg Wednesday. He did not give a timeframe for the construction of the projects.

The green was also seen on the Northern market, as the HNX-Index gained 5.28 points, 2.85 percent, to close at 190.27. Nearly 32.2 million shares were traded at VND1.33 trillion.

UPCoM-Index closed at 71.52, up 0.95 points, 1.35 percent, over Wednesday. A total of 62,996 shares were traded at VND1.41 billion.

On the global market, US stocks were led by growth in health care orders and prices while jobs data boosted hopes for the US government’s monthly jobs report Friday.

Stocks were also taking their cues from the dollar, which has been weakening against the euro since the opening bell.

Cheap priced tours to aid domestic tourism

In Vietnam Travel on September 22, 2009 at 1:09 pm

Economic recession and A/H1N1 flu have seriously affected Vietnam’s tourism industry. The number of international tourists arriving in the country in the first nine months of the year has fallen. However, domestic tourist numbers have grown 30 percent.

The growth in domestic tourism has resulted from a 60 percent discount on airfares by the State-owned carrier Vietnam Airlines (VNA).

The airline is providing the discount for domestic tours as a response to Vietnam National Administration of Tourism’s domestic tourist stimulation program at the beginning of 2009.
In costs of domestic package tours, air tickets account for 40 percent.

The airfare discount has been considered an unheard-of break through in the history of country’s aviation industry.

A five day and four night tour from HCMC to Northern provinces, which had earlier cost between VND8million and 9 million, has fallen to VND5 to 6 million.

Companies have still met difficulties with some conditions by VNA. Tran The Dung, deputy director of The He Tre Tourist Company in HCMC said that to get cheap tickets, his company has to gather at least ten tourists for a tour.

The promotion is also going to end by the end of September.

Companies are worried that the number of customers will fall when prices return to the old tour prices, a rise of 30 to 40 percent.

Tourist companies have proposed that VNA lengthen the program until the end of the year. VNA has not yet responded to this proposal.

However, it has announced that the airline will cut ticket prices by 60 to 70 percent for domestic and international routes from October 1 to January 31 next year.

Domestic tourist stimulation

According to some officials from the UN’s World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) at a seminar recently held in HCMC to develop Vietnam tourism in the global financial crisis, the number of international tourists arriving in Vietnam in the beginning months of the year saw the biggest reduction among ASEAN countries.

To make up for the reduction of international visitors, the country should focus on domestic customers.

The government should have longer lasting stimulus policies, with airlines always providing some form of promotion and tourist companies diversifying tourist services to develop domestic tourism.
