FiinPro Talk #7 (Hanoi) - Banking & Real Estate Stocks:  Closing for 2018 & Outlook

Banking and Real Estate Stocks have been undoubtedly driving the market given its 40% contribution to the total market cap. These two groups also attracted a large portion of foreign capital flows into Vietnamese stock market, accounting for 47% and 88% of Daily Trading Value and Total Net Foreign Trading Value, respectively from the beginning of 2018 to date.

For any investors and traders, forming an investment or trading view toward the end of this year 2018 and beyond, it will be largely depending on how these two sectors will be heading to and what are the main driving factors. 

While macroeconomic indicators are still expected in upticks in coming quarters by market consensus, there have been meaningful questions raised. For example, it is the earnings performance expected in 2H2018 and beyond for banking sector and the credit growth capped at 17% and the tightening credit for real estates under Circular 19 by SBV recently, amongst many others.

In this context and as scheduled seminars for our customers of StoxPlus, FiinPro Talk #7 is designed to address this topic.
