Those were also the groups that had made strong gains in previous weeks as investors expected they would release good earnings reports for the last two quarters of the year.

Securities group also performed poorly as most of the stocks in the group such as Saigon Securities Incorporation (SSI), HCM City Securities Corp (HCM), VNDirect Securities Corp (VND) and Sài Gòn-Hà Nội Securities Joint Stock Company SHS all dropped.
Construction materials saw advancement thanks to the growth of Hòa Phát Group (HPG), Vicostone JSC (VCS), Hà Tiên 1 Cement Joint Stock Company (HT1) and Hoa Sen Group (HSG).
On the Hà Nội Stock Exchange, the HNX-Index edged up 0.13 per cent to end Thursday at 106.07 points.

According to Bảo Việt Securities Co (BVSC), the market is forecast to continuously fluctuate with alternative ups and downs in a trading range in the remaining sessions of the week.
VN-Index is expected to fluctuate between 987 and 995 points, BVSC said.
The market will continue to experience a wide divergence among stock sectors, depending on Q3 business results.
