The overall warrants turnover for the week ended 20 August rose by 22% to RM208.4mil, contributed mainly by the index warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) which registered a turnover of RM134.4mil, 64.5% of the total warrants turnover. 

Last week, the Chinese stocks plunged into a bear market as the Chinese regulators once again stepped up their scrutiny on technology companies, implying that Beijing’s wide-ranging corporate crackdown is far from over. Alibaba Group (9988.HK) closed in the red for the entire week, plunging 14.2% week-on-week (w-o-w) while China’s food delivery giant Meituan (3690.HK) fell by 17.1% w-o-w. Meanwhile, the Hong Kong’s flagship HSI slid 1.8% to 24,849.72 last Friday, recording weekly losses of more than 5% w-o-w, while the Hang Seng TECH Index (HSTECH) tumbled 10.5% w-o-w, falling below the 6,000-level to close at 5,895.06 points, down 2.5% on Friday. 

Call warrant HSI-CIF was the top traded warrant, recording the highest trading volume of 128.5mil units. Due to heavy demand from investors, this warrant was already sold out from last Tuesday, investors net bought more than 25.7mil units from the issuer. Investors should exercise caution when trading sold-out warrants as these warrants’ prices may be inflated by other investors queueing and transacting in the market. This means that investors who wish to buy the sold out warrants may be buying the warrants at a much higher price than its fair value. As at the time of writing, other HSI call warrants that are fully sold-out include HSI-CIE and HSI-CIK. Where available, do check the live matrix for a warrant’s fair bid price before trading.

As for the Hong Kong stock warrants, MEITUAN-C4 was the most active for the week, with investors net buying over 5mil out of the 20.7mil units traded. This call warrant tracked the movement of its mother share price closely, slumping 58.3% w-o-w. Bullish or bearish investors may gain leveraged exposure to Hong Kong listed companies with the call and put warrants listed on Bursa.

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.
