Yes, boys, it falls on Wednesday, the 14th of February this year. Glue it to your brain! Fellas!

Despite some political noise around the world, overseas investors have not lost their enthusiasm for Asia’s frontier markets, reflected in the amount of money they continue to pour into Vietnamese stocks amid an improving growth outlook for the country. Vietnam and its investors may have been disappointed this year, when the New York-based Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI), a leading provider of investment decision support tools worldwide, did not reclassify the country as an emerging market; a title that could help its stock market attract more capital inflows than its current frontier market designation brings.
