Vietnam index flat at midday, trade thin

HANOI, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Vietnam's benchmark VN index 
in Ho Chi Minh City edged up 0.08 percent at midday on Monday in
scant trade, buoyed by some buying in blue chip firms.
    The biggest gainers were pharmaceutical DHG Pharma,
which soared 5.2 percent, confectionary company Kinh Do
, up 4.6 percent and technology firm FPT, which
rose 3 percent.
    Investors looked to be hesitant for a second week, as some
brokers had advised, after volatility during the earnings season
and a lack of optimism about the country's sluggish economy.
    Here is a snapshot of the VN Index at midday (0431
GMT).
