Call warrant HSI-C7F rose 30% w-o-w

Warrants Commentary (10 to 13 September)

The Malaysian warrants market was sloppy last week, only clocking in a turnover of RM347.3mil., 10.7% lower compared to the prior week. Fears over the escalating trade war dampened last week as U.S. President Donald Trump decided to delay the tariffs hike on USD250bil. worth of Chinese goods as a “gesture of good will” ahead of the trade talks in October (South China Morning Post, 12 Sep). The Hang Seng Index (HSI) futures sustained the strong momentum from the prior week to record 2 consecutive weeks of gains. The HSI futures traded below the 27,000 mark last Tuesday but then saw huge buying throughout the day on Wednesday to finish at 27,109 points. On the same day, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange announced that they are going to make a USD36.6bil. bid for the London Stock Exchange (South China Morning Post, 11 Sep). The HSI futures were flirting around the 27,000 level on Thursday before breaking out to close at 27,309 points on Friday, advancing 2.7% week-on-week (w-o-w).

A less volatile week also contributed to a 19.7% w-o-w plunge in terms of turnover for the HSI warrants to RM261.8mil. last week. It was a pleasant week for the HSI call warrants holders, especially call warrant HSI-C7F, which saw a 30.0% gain for the week. The call warrant topped the top traded warrants list with RM44.4mil. traded. Investors were net sellers for this call warrant as they sold back a total of 2.9mil. units last week. Meanwhile, investors also traded RM41.9mil. worth of put warrant HSI-H8E, which placed this warrant second on the list. Bearish investors saw the surge in the HSI futures as a buying opportunity for this warrant as it declined 27.3% w-o-w.

On the local front, warrants over Axiata Group were the most popular last week as merger talks between Axiata Group and Telenor Asia (’s major shareholder) were called off due to the complexities involved, according to a filing to Bursa Malaysia. Axiata Group’s share price dipped 15.8% last Tuesday following the news, but found some ground and rebounded a total 3.9% from Wednesday to Friday. Investors who were looking for a rebound in Axiata Group’s shares took home 2.5mil. units of call warrant AXIATA-C39, which has an exercise price of RM4.88.

Market momentum still sturdy

The FBM KLCI edged mildly lower as sentiment turned downbeat as investors booked in gains from the previous session rally. While the local bourse is demonstrating some mild weakness, we reckon that the general recovery trend is still intact as the attention remains focus on the pace of economic recovery. The positive development over the Covid-19 vaccine will also continue to aid the recovery progress. Meanwhile, the lower liners are expected to charge higher, driven by the ample liquidity with the equities market remain in favour.

AME Elite Consortium Bhd – 2nd Dec 20

The proposed AME REIT would also provide stable and recurring income to investors, with at least 90.0% of its income to be distributed as dividends to unitholders. We note that slightly more than half of the current tenants of the industrial properties has more than 5 years of lease under their agreements. Additionally, AME REIT is expected to benefit from lower tax rate compared to prevailing corporate tax rate at an average of 23.4% recorded over the past 4 years.

Disposal of loss-making toilet rolls and tissue manufacturing subsidiary; NTMP Paper Mill (Bentong) Sdn Bhd allow the group to streamline and focus on the existing core businesses. Technically, price has experienced a flag-formation breakout above RM0.73, targeting the next resistances at RM0.795-0.815 with long term target at RM0.90.

Swift recovery

Expectedly, the FBM KLCI performed a swift recovery as the key index recouped most of its previous session losses to re-claim the 1,600 psychological level. We reckon some stability will ensue with further upsides are in the cards as investors continue to focus on the economic recovery progress. Meanwhile, we believe that the lower liners will continue to enjoy their upward momentum as liquidity remains well on the equities market with investors capitalising on the positive market sentiment.
