Vietnam index closes up 0.3 pct, earnings data awaited

HANOI, July 17 (Reuters) - Vietnam's VN index closed
up almost 0.3 percent on Wednesday with most investors reluctant
to buy in anticipation of more liquidity in the market in the
coming weeks, trader said.
    PetroVietnam Fertilizer climbed 2.7 percent,
extending its big gains from the morning session. Pharmaceutical
firm DHG Pharma rose 1.6 percent, followed by dairy
company Vinamilk and Eximbank, both up 0.7
percent.
    "The index performance will improve dramatically after the
second quarter earning reports are released in the coming days
and there could be new positive macro economic news," said
Nguyen Anh Tuan, a senior broker at FPT Securities.
