Last week’s warrant trading activity rose a slight 1.2% to RM131.2mil, with warrants over shares making up 61.3% of total turnover. Index warrants took a step back this week, with warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) contributing 36.0% of turnover, and the remaining largely taken up by warrants over the local benchmark FBM KLCI and the S&P 500® Index.

On the local front, warrants over Dagang NeXchange (DNEX) were popular with investors last week as its share price had a stellar performance, rising 10.3% week-on-week (w-o-w) to end the week at RM0.750, resulting in increased focus on DNEX warrants, namely DNEX-CG and DNEX-CF. DNEX-CG came in third on the top traded list with 60.7mil units traded for the week. 

Other than that, there was increased activity in warrants over glove makers Supermax and Top Glove as the nation continues to battle the Covid-19 pandemic, reporting a new record high of 13,215 new Covid cases on Thursday last week. Top Glove shares rose 3.9% w-o-w to RM3.97, with call warrant TOPGLOV-C1R coming in fifth on the traded list. TOPGLOV-C1R has a lower exercise price of RM3.88 and is currently the only in-the-money Top Glove call warrant listed on Bursa. These underlyings overperformed the FBM KLCI, which rose a slight 0.1% w-o-w to end the week at 1,522.48 points.

As for the HSI, the index managed to rise to above the 28,000-level last week after being beaten down in the previous week, ending the week at 28,004.68 points, 2.4% higher w-o-w with four of five trading days in the green. Put warrant HSI-HGR was the most active warrant by volume for the week with 97.3mil units traded, while call warrants HSI-CFW and HSI-CFQ took the second and fourth spot with 60.7mil and 44.2mil units traded, respectively. Investors should note that HSI-HGR and HSI-CFQ will expire on 29 July 2021, with their last trading date on 27 July 2021, meaning investors would not be able to buy or sell the warrants after this date. Further, the call warrants over Geely Automobile Holdings (175 HK; a constituent of the HSI) GEELY-C4 and GEELY-C5 saw more than 7mil units traded each as Geely shares rose 3.0% for the week to end the week at HKD24.35.

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.
