Of these, PetroVietnam Technical Services Corporation (ticker PVS) and PetroVietnam Drilling and Well Services Corporation (ticker PVD) are good examples in the petroleum sector.
In the third quarter of this year, the crude oil price regained growth momentum amidst a spike in global consumer demand, which fuelled oil and gas exploration and exploitation activities and paved the way for petroleum businesses to outperform their full-year business targets.

At PVD, the company was in the red in 2022 due to unfavourable business conditions.

Building material production has been among the sectors facing multiple hardships over the past year due to the feeble demand and sluggish real estate market, yet several units in this sector have eyed exceptional growth.
