Most experts are optimistic about the prospects of the Vietnamese stock markets. They share the same optimism when it comes to the performance of the main indexes for 2018. At Anh Thomas Investment, we would be more prudent. Our view is that it is extremely difficult to predict stock performances over a short period but much easier to predict it over a longer period. We are very optimistic for the Vietnamese stock market performances over the next 5 to 10 years. That is why we always advise our clients to be long-term investors and preach against trading too much since we are deeply convinced that individual investors cannot compete against professional traders and large banks powerful algorithms.
