BANGKOK, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Thai stocks rose for a sixth
session on Tuesday, while Vietnam's shares ended four days of
falls, joining global equities in gains on hopes of a U.S.
budget deal, with investors buying shares in Thai banks ahead of
the reporting season.
Bangkok's SET index ended up 0.9 percent at
1,472.90, its highest close in more than three weeks, pushing
the benchmark close to a key 1,500 mark last hit in late July.
Shares of large-cap banks outperformed, including Krung Thai
Bank Pcl, Kasikornbank Pcl, Siam Commercial
Bank Pcl and Bangkok Bank Pcl. They are due to
report their July-September earnings from this week to Oct. 22.
Vietnam's benchmark VN Index inched up 0.4 percent,
but investors were still cautious, awaiting third-quarter
earnings expected next week.
