Bloomberg: Vietnam’s valuations dive to a decade-low

Bloomberg is reporting on Vietnam’s stock market’s cheap valuations. “The gauge now trades at about 9 times estimated earnings over the next year, its lowest since 2012.”

Bloomberg points out that the Vietnam Stock Index has fallen more than 27% this year “as concerns grow over rising interest rates”.

“There are a lot of high quality companies with fantastic structural growth opportunities trading over a standard deviation below their historical averages. It’s a great time to buy,” said Coeli Asset fund manager James Bannan to Bloomberg.

According to Bloomberg, investors said Vietnam’s long-term story remains intact “due to its stronger macroeconomic position relative to regional peers. The country, whose economy is expected to grow about 7% this year, is also a prime beneficiary of supply chain shifts.”
