Large put-through transactions of newly listed Vincom Retail Company (VRE) pulled turnover on the Hochiminh Stock Exchange (HOSE) to a new high on November 7, with trading value rocketing 3.5 times versus the previous session to VND20.4 trillion.

There were nearly 415 million shares of VRE traded in block deals with the combined value of VND16.8 trillion. Of the figures, foreigners bought 396.6 million shares and sold 260.4 million shares of VRE, resulting in a net purchase of 136.2 million shares worth over VND5.5 trillion.

Before listing on HOSE, the enterprise had two foreign investors, Warburg Pincus Investments and Credit Suisse Singapore Branch holding 15.17 percent and 5.06 percent respectively. According to vietstock.vn, the two investors announced to reduce their ownerships to 4.9 percent and 1.6 percent respectively after the listing, equivalent to around 260.4 million shares to be sold.

Meanwhile, VIC, the parent firm of VRE, climbed 2.5 percent at VND62,000 a share on matching volume of 1.6 million shares, turning the top positive contributor to the VN Index. Lender CTG also performed well, adding 0.5 percent at VND19,500 a share with 3.2 million shares changing hands.

Among oil and gas stocks, PVD jumped 5 percent to VND16,900 per share on volume of 8.7 million shares given the sharp rise of global oil price.
