Earnings growth will lead the VN Index

— 24.09.2021

In this Investor letter we have few important notes for our positive expectations in the Vietnamese stock market. The earnings growth in the coming years looks very strong and we believe this will be the key driver in the market. We also assume that the increase in infections during the fourth wave of Covid-19 has leveled off and the situation will improve substantially this fall.

VRE (shopping malls), ACV (airports), VEA (cars and mopeds), CEO (leisure properties) and SCS (air cargo) are among stocks whose earnings growth may deliver positive surprises in the years to come, once the negative earnings impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are entirely in the past. However, potential new waves of infections and new restrictions may postpone earnings performance.
