Việt Nam’s benchmark VN-Index surged on Wednesday after a six-day losing streak as investor sentiment improved following solid data of PMI in June and steep cuts in interest rates of some banks.
The VN-Index recouped 2.23 per cent to close Wednesday at 843.49 points after losing 5.4 per cent in the previous six sessions.
Large caps led the market when 26 of the top 30 shares by market value and liquidity on the Hồ Chí Minh Stock Exchange gained value, half of which increased by between 2 per cent and 7 per cent.
Strong gains of heavyweight stocks such as Vincom Retail (VRE), brewer Sabeco (SAB), Vietcombank (VCB), Vietinbank (CTG), Bank for Investment and Development of Việt Nam (BID), steelmaker Hòa Phát Group (HPG), Masan Group (MSN), Vingroup (VIC) and Phú Nhuận Jewelry (PNJ) had positive impacts on investor psychology.
On Wednesday, shares of banks, securities companies and realty firms also increased substantially on investors’ hopes of better business results of these stock groups in the second half of this year.
Big gainers included Military Bank (MBB), Vietnam Prosperity Bank (VPB), Sacombank (STB), Saigon Securities Inc (SSI), Hồ Chí Minh Securities (HCM), MB Securities (MBS), VNDirect Securities (VND), Hòa Bình Construction (HBC), Coteccons Construction (CTD), Đất Xanh Grou[ (DXG), FLC Group (FLC).
A survey of Nikkei and IHS Markit released on Wednesday showed the Vietnam Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) posted 51.1 in June, up from 42.7 in May and above the 50.0 no-change mark for the first time in five months. The reading represented a continuation of the recovery seen since the PMI hit a record low in April.
In addition, a number of banks, including big ones such as Vietcombank, Vietinbank and BIDV announced a reduction in deposit interest rates since early July given abundant liquidity but low credit growth.
According to Lê Ngọc Nam, head of analysis at Tân Việt Securities JSC, business results in the first quarter were pessimistic, though it was not the time to implement social distancing, with 54 per cent of companies posting negative growth – the worst number since the global financial crisis in 2008.  
But he predicted the market has recovered recently thanks to investors’ confidence in timely support packages of the Government to the economy and businesses will soon return to normal and resume activities.
Along with the continuous decreases in interest rates, the market may continue to welcome a new wave of investors, and this will continue to be one of the market's drivers, he said.
On the Hà Nội Stock Exchange, the HNX-Index also gained 1.75 per cent after three-day losses, closing Wednesday at 111.69 points.
A total of 339.4 million shares worth almost VNĐ5 trillion (US$214 million) were traded in the two markets. — VNS
