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.

Jaks Resources Bhd – 29Jul21

While there will be no financial impact on JAKS, we view the matter to be favorable to restore JAKS reputation amongst investors after being clouded by uncertainties over the past 2 years amid concern over potential impairments from the aforementioned matter. Moving forward, JAKS will continue to focus on current operations as well as business expansion plans, particularly in the power and renewable energy business segment.

market pulse

Still in consolidation

The FBM KLCI closed mildly positive following the late bargain hunting activities,
but gains were capped amid unrelenting Covid-19 cases as well as the recent
political developments. Despite daily Covid-19 infection continue to be on the rise
amid ramped up testing in Klang Valley, we expect the vaccination rate should
brush off negative sentiment and traders may look for recovery opportunities. Also,
both the Hang Seng Futures and overnight Wall Street could be due for a technical
rebound and may spillover towards stocks on the local front, especially on the tech
sector. Commodities wise, CPO price was down as demand were seen slowing
down from India and China, while the crude oil extended its gains.

technical focus

Technical Focus – MSM

Leading local sugar producer, commanding approximately 60.0% market share in the local sugar market after having produced 1.0m MT in 2020 that operates 2 sugar refineries with products consumed locally and shipped mainly to Asia countries.
Aims to increase utilisation factor in MSM Johor which is only hovering around 30.0% in 2020, while evaluating for potential disposal to streamline operations. Dry weather in Thailand is expected to prolong to 2022 and the drought that dimmed Brazil productions may support the elevated sugar prices. Technically, traders may anticipate for a potential flag-formation breakout above RM1.32 to target the next resistance of RM1.41-1.52, with long term target at RM1.72.

market pulse

Tepid recovery

Bucking the regional downtrend move, the FBM KLCI rebounded and posted
modest gains on the back of bargain hunting activities as well as expectation on
the economy reopening by October. Although investors will be shifting their focus
from daily Covid-19 infections to the positive vaccination rate locally, the local
sentiment may still remain cautious following the negative performances in China
and Hong Kong after Beijing announced additional measures for the technology,
education and real estate’s sectors. On a side note, foreign investors are net seller
for the third session.
