Vietnam index loses 0.6 pct, blue chips lead fall

HANOI, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Vietnam's benchmark VN Index
 lost 0.64 percent to 487.4 points by midday, tracking
falls on regional markets as foreign investors sold blue chips,
analysts said.
    Shares in Vietnam's two biggest companies by capitalisation
lead the fall, with PetroVietnam Gas dipping 0.73
percent to 68,000 dong ($3.22) each and dairy product maker
Vinamilk easing 0.71 percent to 139,000 dong per share.
    Stocks of BaoViet Holdings, Vietnam's biggest
insurer, fell 1.79 percent and real estate firm HAGL Co 
was down 0.96 percent.
    The pressure of foreigners selling is very risky and the
market is looking for supportive news to lift the sentiment,
analysts said.
