BANGKOK, July 17 (Reuters) - Thailand's main stock index
fell for a fourth day on Friday, extending weaknesses for a
third straight week, led down by consumer shares, while
Vietnam's benchmark snapped a two-day losing streak as some
blue-chips led the rebound.
    Bangkok's SET index ended the day down 0.13 percent and
lower 0.4 percent on the week. Concerns over the impact of
drought on farm economy dented sentiment on consumer shares,
sending the commerce sub-index 0.4 percent lower.
    Vietnam's benchmark VN Index closed up 0.28 percent,
taking its gain on the week to 0.2 percent, its third straight
week. Top gainers included food producer Masan Group 
and top insurer BaoViet Holdings.
    Indexes in the Philippines, Singapore and
Malaysia, which were closed for the Eid al-Fitr holiday,
have notched up weekly gains of 3 percent, 2.2 percent and 0.7
percent, respectively.
    Indonesia posted a weekly gain of 0.2 percent in a
shortened trading week. It is shut through July 21 for Eid
al-Fitr celebrations.
