HSI-C5P and MYEG-C68 stole the limelight

Warrants Commentary (8 July to 12 July)

The Malaysia warrants market recorded a turnover of RM432.5mil. last week, 13.9% higher than the preceding week. Warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) continued to be investors’ favourite with RM317.1mil. traded, mainly driven by the increased volatility in Asia’s most active stock market.

Last Sunday, fresh political violence broke out as riot police baton-charged anti-extradition protestors following another massive rally (7 Jul, South China Morning Post). On Monday, the HSI futures plunged below the 28,500 level for the first time since late June 2019 to close 1.5% lower at 28,360 points. The HSI futures then slid another 0.9% on Tuesday before reversing some losses over the rest of the week to close at 28,539 points on Friday. The strong rebound took place last Wednesday after the Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell signalled a potential rate cut later this month to cushion the U.S. economy against the risk of slower global growth and trade-policy uncertainty (10 Jul, The Wall Street Journal).

The most notable warrant last week was call warrant HSI-C5P, which garnered a total turnover of RM67.9mil. Investors who were bullish on the HSI took the opportunity of the dip at the start of the week to collect a total of 12.4mil. units of this warrant from Monday to Wednesday, before selling back 13.4mil. units as the warrant gained about 11.9% over Thursday and Friday. In addition, put warrant HSI-H6R was also heavily traded by investors last week, with a turnover of RM56.1mil. The bid price of the put warrant gained a whopping 26.0% as the HSI futures declined over the first two trading days last week. Put warrants generally move in an opposite direction to the underlying’s price movement.

On the local front, the share price of electronic government services provider My E.G. Services (MYEG) was sluggish at the start of last week, but picked up momentum on Thursday and Friday to close 2.7% higher week-on-week (w-o-w) to RM1.53 on Friday. Call warrant MYEG-C68 stole the limelight last week with a total RM4.6mil. traded. The bid price of the call warrant surged 13.3% w-o-w to match the price increase in the underlying.

Chin Well Holdings Bhd – 1Mar21

With the recovery still remain at infant stage, we reckon that outlook remains challenging as global economic recovery remains at an uneven patch with temporary shutdown in manufacturing activities and tepid demand. While the North America segment remains upbeat, the softer demand from other regions of the world continues to bog down the overall performance.

OCK Group Bhd – 1Mar21

We attended the post quarter results analyst briefing and came away feeling re-assured on OCK Group Bhd (OCK) recovery moving into FY21f. FY20 was largely affected by the slowdown of sites deployment due to the Covid-19 pandemic with domestic mechanical & engineering works were halted for several months. Moving into the FY21f, we note that the re-implementation of Movement Control Order (MCO 2.0) will be less severe given the relaxation of business operations, whilst the deployment of Covid-19 vaccination may provide some relieve, particularly towards end-2021.

Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd – 1Mar21

While the oil & gas business segment will continue to anchor the overall earnings growth, Serba Dinamik is gradually shifting towards other business segments, particularly the ICT business segment. For the time being, the ICT segment orderbook of approximately RM2.2bn (close to 12.0% of total orderbook of RM18.7bn) will sustain earnings visibility over the foreseeable future.
