Trading activity in warrants extended gains in the previous week with its turnover rising another 9.6% week-on-week (w-o-w) to RM150.3mil, due to the heavy trading in warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) and the S&P500® Index (SP500) particularly on Monday (22 June). Both the HSI and SP500 warrants recorded a combined trading value of RM78.1mil, which was 52.0% of the overall warrants turnover last week. 

Last Monday the SP500 rallied 1.4% to record its best gain since May following the Federal Reserve’s surprise hawkish shift to start raising interest rates and tapering asset purchases sooner than expected. The Fed’s Chairman Jerome Powell reiterated his views the following day that the inflation pressures will be transitory after a notable increase in recent months (Reuters, 22 June). Subsequently, the SP500 rallied another 0.5% on Tuesday and ultimately recorded a weekly gain of 2.7%. Meanwhile, the HSI fell a total 1.7% earlier in the week before rebounding 3.5% over three days and closed above the 29,000-mark last Friday. 

Four HSI warrants consisting of two call warrants i.e. HSI-CFL (+12.5% w-o-w) and HSI-CFQ (+19.1% w-o-w) recorded over 241mil units traded while another two put warrants i.e. HSI-HGN and HSI-HGR had a total trading volume of 257.2mil units. HSI-HGN was already worthless last Friday while HSI-HGR fell 48.1% w-o-w. Investors should note that HSI-CFL and HSI-HGN, along with four other HSI warrants are already suspended today (Monday, 28 June) as they are expiring tomorrow (Tuesday, 29 June). Meanwhile, the SP500 put warrant, SP500-HU (-10.7%) saw investors buying 1.5mil out of 19.4mil units 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.
