The Malaysia warrants market recorded a 6.3% increase in trading activity last week with a RM137.2mil turnover. Zooming further into the turnover composition, Malaysia stock warrants posted a lower turnover at RM69.0mil while warrants over indices saw a surge in interest with RM50.0mil traded which can be attributed to the higher volatility in global equities in the past week.

Dagang NeXchange (DNEX) is one of the top advancers on Bursa Malaysia this year with a staggering 282.2% gain year-to-date (YTD). The strong share price performance can be attributed to the positive development in the company recently which includes the Ping Petroleum stake increase and the SilTerra Malaysia acquisition alongside its strategic Chinese partner (The Edge Markets, 8 Jun). Call warrant DNEX-CA was crowned the top traded warrant last week with RM18.0mil in turnover as it is the first ever call warrant listed over DNEX. Due to popular demand, this call warrant may be low on inventory. Warrants which are sold out by the issuer (or close to being sold out) may see its market price moving higher than its fair price due to other investors queuing in the market. 

Besides, the share price of V.S. Industry (VSI) finished at a two-month high (RM1.45) on Friday following its highest ever quarterly profit announcement last Wednesday (The Edge Markets, 16 Jun). Bullish investors were actively trading VSI calls, among which VS-C43 emerged as the most popular one with RM5.4mil traded followed by VS-C50 which saw RM1.5mil traded. In comparison to VS-C43, VS-C50 is two months longer dated with its absolute warrant price being 5sen lower.

Meanwhile, the Hong Kong market had a rollercoaster ride last week as the HSI June futures finished lower on the first two trading days of the week before rebounding from the weekly low (28,088) on Thursday and finishing above the 28,700 level on Friday. Bullish investors collected call warrants HSI-CFN and HSI-CFQ early last week and subsequently took profit on their positions as the index futures rebounded on Thursday and Friday. On top of the two call warrants, put warrant HSI-HGN was another HSI warrant which appeared on the top warrant list with RM7.5mil traded.

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.
