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.

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.
