Below is one paragraph from the last Investor Letter of the year. We have summarized here what happened in the Vietnamese stock market this fall, and what we think will follow.
“Vietnam’s stock market’s weak performance this year is extraordinary. In the autumn, in a very short period of time, the value of the Vietnamese dong fell, interest rates rose, the corporate bond market got frozen and stocks faced forced selling. There have not been declines of the same magnitude in other stock markets in the ASEAN region, and therefore it is expected that Vietnam’s stock market will bounce back up when the disruption is corrected. Confidence in the market has already improved, and we can expect the VN-Index to follow the growth path of the Vietnamese economy and the company earnings direction in the next 12 months. Among ASEAN countries, the outlook for economic growth and earnings growth of listed companies in the next few years is strongest in Vietnam.”
In this Investor Letter we also tell, that foreign investors have aggressively taken advantage of the turbulent conditions in Vietnam’s financial market. Foreigners were 685 million USD net buy on the Vietnam market in November, which is a record number.
