The overall warrants trading activity was rather subdued last week versus the previous week with the total warrants turnover clocking in at RM80.6mil. Sentiments continued to be cautious amid reports of high Covid-19 cases and deaths despite the extensions of the nationwide lockdown dubbed movement control order (MCO) 3.0. The benchmark FBMKLCI ended its second consecutive week in the red territory, down 1.7% to 1,533.35, its lowest level in almost eight months.

For the week, warrants over single stocks were the major contributor with RM44.1mil traded, representing 54.7% of the total warrants turnover, while warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) contributed 37.7% with its total turnover registering RM30.4mil in value traded. Among the top active for the week were the HSI warrants, namely the July expiry call warrant HSI-CFQ and put warrant HSI-HGR with a total traded volume of 74.9mil and 51.7mil units respectively, despite the market holiday in Hong Kong on Thursday in conjunction with the HKSAR Establishment Day. The holiday-shortened week saw the HSI tumble over all four trading days to end the week at 28,310.43, down by 3.3% week-on-week (w-o-w).

Over on the local front, warrants over Dagang NeXchange (DNEX) took the spotlight with DNEX-CA logging 24.4mil units in total volume traded with up to RM2.4mil in value. Meanwhile, call warrants over glove names, TOPGLOV-C1L and SUPERMX-C1Z came in at 23.8mil and 20.2mil units traded respectively. 

The world’s biggest glovemaker Top Glove Corporation (TOPGLOV) extended losses to close a sixth straight week in the red, down by 7.8% w-o-w to RM4.01, its lowest since June 2020, while Supermax Corporation (SUPERMX) fell by 4.4% for the week to RM3.23, also plumbing its lowest level in more than 12 months as concerns on overcapacity and rising pressure over selling prices of gloves continued to weigh on the glove counters.

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.
