Vietnam index ends up 0.6 pct, property leads

HANOI, Feb 19 (Reuters) - Vietnam's benchmark VN Index
 climbed 0.62 percent to close at 578.12 points on
Wednesday, with small- and mid-cap stocks attracting most
investments, especially in the real estate sector.
    Nearly all property shares advanced, with Vingroup 
gaining 0.6 percent and HAGL Co rising 1.16 percent. 
    Tan Tao Investment and Industry Corp closed up 1.28
percent to its one-year high of 7,900 dong ($0.37) as the most
traded stock on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange, Reuters data
showed.
    Investors bought small- and mid-cap stocks after taking
profit from most big shares, keeping money within the market,
said analyst Le Dac An at Tan Viet Securities.
    "But the current money inflow into the market is short-term
and unstable, so the index could fall next week when investments
are withdrawn from shares," An said.
    Here is a snapshot of the VN Index at the close (0801
GMT).
