With the public holiday on Monday, the shortened trading week resulted in a lower total warrants turnover of RM129.1mil last week. Investors should also note that there is a public holiday in Hong Kong on Monday (14 Jun), meaning there will be no market making for warrants over Hong Kong listed underlyings such as the Hang Seng Index (HSI), Hang Seng TECH Index (HSTECH), iShares FTSE China A50 ETF (China A50 ETF) and Hong Kong shares.

The previous week’s interest in warrants over Serba Dinamik (SERBADK) and MMC Corporation (MMCCORP) carried into the past week. SERBADK shares continued to fall, kicking off Tuesday with a 19% plunge to RM0.620 before staging a slight recovery over Wednesday and Thursday, but finished Friday with a 5.5% decline, ultimately closing 20.9% lower week-on-week (w-o-w) to RM0.605. Call warrant SERBADK-C17 took the fifth spot in the top traded list with 27.5mil units traded. 

In contrast, after MMCCORP shares limit up on the previous Friday (4 Jun) following Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar’s proposal to bring MMCCORP private via a selective capital reduction (SCR) exercise at RM2.00 per share, the shares ended the week 7.1% higher to RM1.81. Call warrant MMCCORP-C23 was third in the top traded list with 35.2mil units traded. Other than that, the shares of Genting Malaysia (GENM) moved 3.8% higher w-o-w to RM2.98. GENM-C89, which came in second in volume traded last week, correspondingly moved up by 5.9%.

On the foreign front, the HSI fell for the 7th consecutive day on Thursday, before staging a small 0.4% recovery on Friday to end the week at 28,842.13 points, down 0.3% w-o-w. Despite the lacklustre performance in the current weeks, the HSI is still up by 5.9% year-to-date. Two HSI warrants ended up in the top traded list – put warrant HSI-HGN with 85.5mil units traded and call warrant HSI-CFP with 29.0mil units traded. 

Investors should note that HSI-HGN expires on 29 June 2021 with its last trading date on 25 June 2021, meaning investors would be unable to buy or sell this warrant after 25 June 2021. Further, investors should consider warrants with longer time to expiry, as warrants with shorter time to expiry tend to experience a faster rate of time decay, resulting in higher holding cost for investors.

Still eyeing 1,600

The FBM KLCI took a breather following a seven-day winning streak, as the key
index retreated from the 1,600 psychological level on the back of profit taking
activities. However, tracking the strong gains from Wall Street overnight, we expect
local equities to gain momentum and investors could focus on the upcoming
Budget 2022 beneficiaries, which we anticipate some goodies to be revealed for
construction, telecommunication, and solar sectors. Commodities wise, the CPO
price declined after a surge in the previous session, while the crude oil price
rebounded above the USD84 per barrel mark.

market pulse

Spurred by foreign buying

The FBM KLCI closed above the 1,600 psychological level amid persistent buying
from foreign funds over the past week and sentiment remained positive on the
back of the discussion of international borders reopening going forward. The
recovery theme sectors such as construction, building material and financial
services sectors saw substantial gains and may remain under the limelight in the
near term ahead of Budget 2022. Meanwhile, the plantation counters are gaining
traction amid a jump in CPO price; the CPO price has rebounded and surged by
3.4% to close above the RM5,000 level.

Technical Focus – KERJAYA

One of Malaysia’s leading construction players with strong historical track record of completion of notable projects such as St. Mary Residences, The Shore Mixed Commercial Development, EcoSky Condominum and Vista Residences. Solid unbilled orderbook of RM3.40bn that represents an orderbook-to-cover-ratio of 4.2x against FY20 revenue of RM811.0m will provide earnings visibility for next 3 years. Equipped with a healthy balance sheet with a net cash position of RM195.0m in 2QFY21, translating to net cash per share of 15.7 sen (c.12.3% of share price). Technically, traders may anticipate for a breakout above RM1.29 to target the next resistances at RM1.38-1.41 with long term target at RM1.53.

market pulse

Still on the ascend

Bucking the regional markets, the FBM KLCI extended its winning streak for the
sixth session, buoyed by persistent buying interest in index-linked banking and
telecommunication heavyweights on the back of positive sentiment in tandem with
the rising foreign buying interest. Despite the overnight negative performance on
Wall Street, we believe the local bourse may remain bullish over the near term and
move closer to the 1,600 psychological level, supported by the reopening of
economic activities as vaccination rate of adult population has achieved above
90%. Meanwhile, commodities wise, both the CPO and crude oil prices saw a
pullback as inflation concerns picked up.
