The Malaysia warrants market saw a jump in overall turnover for the third week of November compared to its previous week, registering up to RM299.5mil in value traded which is a 39% increase week-on-week (w-o-w). Trading in warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) continued to be the dominating factor in the weekly turnover, accounting for RM234.4mil, which is over 78.2% of the overall turnover owing to the volatile moves in its underlying. 

The HSI November futures kicked off the week on a positive note to finish both Monday and Tuesday in the green before losing ground for the rest of the week to end Friday at 24,989, down close to 1.3% w-o-w dragged by a sharp plunge in market heavyweight Alibaba after it slashed its outlook for its current fiscal year along with the release of its September quarter results on Thursday which missed analyst estimates for a second straight quarter. 

The trading week saw active trading in both the call warrant HSI-CIV (exercise level of 26,600) and the put warrant HSI-HMG (exercise level of 25,000) which recorded 268.9mil and 177.6mil units traded with a total traded value of RM80.2mil and RM74.7mil respectively over the week. This is followed by the near expiring put warrant HSI-HMD (expiry date 29 November 2021) which recorded up to 166.8mil units traded with a total value of RM49.8mil. Investors should note that warrants nearing expiry will experience a much higher rate of time decay, i.e. the warrant price will start reducing more rapidly even if the underlying price or level remains constant. Meanwhile, call warrant HSI-CI1 saw 52.7mil units exchanged hands for the week, occupying the fifth spot in the most active list with a total traded value of RM15.6mil.

Over at the local front, call warrants over Dagang NeXchange (DNEX), namely DNEX-CG and DNEX-CF were among the active warrants for the week as the underlying snapped a three-week winning streak to end the week lower at RM0.825 (down 1.8% w-o-w). Other popular warrants last week were INARI-C90, INARI-C92 and MEITUAN-C5 with total traded volumes of up to 9.8mil, 16mil and 12.7mil units respectively.

Turning point

The FBM KLCI rebounded from Omicron-induced selloff earlier, led by banking heavyweights and window dressing activities may have started. We reckon the
overnight rally at Wall Street may spill over to the local bourse amid fading concerns over the Covid-19 Omicron variant. Besides, market may keep an eye on China’s economic data (inflation and PPI) which will be releasing on Thursday. On the local front, the government will be deciding on the 5G wholesale model by Jan-2022 and aims to reach 80% of the populated areas with 5G roll-out may benefit the telecommunication sector. Commodities wise, the crude oil price advanced to close above the USD75 per barrel mark, while the CPO price extended gains.

Kelington Group Bhd – 7Dec21

Following the latest win, KGB’s year-to-date orderbook replenishment now stood at
approximately RM976.0m; exceeding our expectations of RM900.0m for the year. We gather that year-to-date contract wins represents record high orderbook replenishment for KGB, which is a testament for the group’s capability to undertake
larger number of work orders.

Seeking for rebound

The FBM KLCI surrendered gains from the previous session as sentiment remained weak, in line with negative performances on the regional bourses. However, Wall Street has rebounded strongly overnight with the view that the Covid-19 Omicron
variant may cause milder illness than earlier strains; this may provide buying support to the local equities. Closer to home, we should expect some rebound on the key index as investors may be repositioning into value stocks or heavyweights moving into the year-end window dressing period. On commodity markets, crude oil prices settled 4.6% higher at USD73 per barrel after Saudi Arabia raised prices
for its crude sold to Asia and the US, while the CPO price saw slight rebound.
