VN stock market hits record, big names rise

According to the Ho Chi Minh City Stock Exchange (HOSE)’s report, along with the strong increase of the VN-Index in H1, the exchange’s capitalization value has gained about $17 billion this year.

HOSE has 28 companies with capitalization value of more than $1 billion, including four with capitalization value of over $10 billion, including: Vingroup (VIC), Vietcombank (VCB), VinHomes (VHM) and Hoa Phat Group (HPG). The Bank for Foreign Trade of Vietnam or Vietcombank has the largest market capitalization with over VND420 trillion (around $18 billion).

After three years, the capitalization value of VinHomes has surpassed that of its the parent group Vingroup (VIC), with nearly VND400 trillion dong. Meanwhile, the capitalization value of the Vietnam Technological and Commercial Joint Stock Bank or Techcombank has surpassed that of two giant banks - the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV) and the Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade or Vietinbank. Techcombank's capitalization value has recently exceeded VND200 trillion for the first time.

Other big names on HOSE, which rank behind the top four, include: VietinBank, BIDV, the Vietnam Dairy Products Joint Stock Company (Vinamilk), Techcombank, Novaland Group, PetroVietnam Gas Joint Stock Corporation (PV GAS), Vietnam Prosperity Joint-Stock Commercial Bank (VPBank), Masan Group, Military Commercial Joint Stock Bank (MBBank), Saigon Alcohol Beer and Beverage Joint Stock Corporation (Sabeco), FPT Group, Mobile World (MWG), Vincom Retail (VRE), Vietnam National Petroleum Group (Petrolimex) (PLX), VietJet Air (VJC), Ho Chi Minh City Development Joint Stock Commercial Bank (HDBank) (HDB), Phat Dat Corporation (PDR), Bao Viet Holdings (BVH), Tien Phong Commercial Joint Stock Bank (TPBank), Vietnam Export Import Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Eximbank), Saigon Securities Incorporation (SSI), PetroVietnam Power Corporation (POW) and Khang Dien House (KDH).

Vietcombank has passed Vingroup to rank first in terms of market capitalization since June 18.

Meanwhile, the Vietnam Dairy Products Joint Stock Company (Vinamilk) has been losing its position in terms of capitalization value. In H1, the price of Vinamilk shares decreased slightly and its market capitalization dropped to 8th place with more than VND187 trillion.

Vinamilk was the largest company on HOSE in September 2015 after surpassing Vietcombank. In the past three years, Vinamilk no longer retained its position, while Vietcombank and Vingroup made breakthroughs.

The Hoa Phat Group of billionaire Tran Dinh Long has also recorded great moves thanks to the strong increase in stock prices due to the rise of steel prices. Meanwhile, PV Gas has benefited greatly from the news that oil prices will increase beyond expectations.

VN-Index rises by nearly 28%

As of the end of June, HOSE had recorded listing capitalization of about $226 billion, an increase of nearly 30% compared to early 2021 and equivalent to about 84% of GDP in 2020.

The breakthrough of banking stocks

Within a short period of time, two more banks passed Vinamilk in terms of capitalization. The prices for BIDV and Techcombank stocks increased sharply in the last sessions of June and thus their capitalization surpassed Vinamilk to climb to the 6th and 7th positions.

The price for Techcombank stock doubled in H1 thanks to its strong profit growth, which is estimated by Viet Dragon Securities Corporation (VDSC) to be over VND11 trillion in H1, up 65% year on year.

 

In the market, many banks are forecast to record strong profit growth in the second quarter such as VPBank (VPB), MaritimeBank (MSB)...

According to SSI Research, the pre-tax profit of VPBank could be as high as VND3.5 to VND4 trillion, up 66-90% year on year.
