FiinPro Data Digest #1: Vietnam Stock Market from Data Analytics Perspective
The year 2019 has just passed with unattractive stock market performance as VN-Index posted 7.7% growth. Looking back to a longer horizontal, VN-Index only increased by 76% in the past 5 years and by 94% in the past decade, equaling to 12% and 6.5% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) respectively. This performance was quite low, and to some extent, was disappointing by the investment community in the context of strong macroeconomic fundamentals recently in Vietnam.
