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.

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.

We gather that this would be KGB’s single largest project win to-date. The move subsequently boosted KGB orderbook replenishment year-to-date to another record high at approximately RM764.0m (inclusive of smaller scale projects). This also exceeded our orderbook replenishment target of RM450.0m for FY21f. We expect the momentum to continue with another RM50-100m worth of projects coming into the picture for KGB to wrap up the record year, premised to the strong global semiconductor sales.
