The Malaysia warrants market was rather quiet last week with the overall warrants turnover coming in at RM151.5mil, post Hari Raya celebrations. Investors continued to remain in cautious mode amid reports of record high Covid-19 cases in the country and concerns of potential stricter economic and social restrictions. The benchmark FBMKLCI ended its fourth consecutive week in red territory, down by 1.3% to 1,562.17. 

For the week, warrants over single stocks was the major contributor with RM103.2mil traded, representing 68.1% of the total warrants turnover while warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) contributed 27.3% with its total turnover recording RM41.3mil in value traded. Call warrants D&O-CC and SUPERMX-C1Z were among the top single stock warrants on the list and recorded RM5.9mil and RM5.6mil turnover each  last week. As Covid-19 cases in the country hit record highs, there were renewed interest in the rubber glove makers as industry giants Top Glove and Supermax jumped by 2.1% and 8.2% respectively last Wednesday. As a result, call warrant TOPGLOV-C1L also saw a pickup in trading interest, registering RM4.1mil in value traded  for the week.

Meanwhile on the foreign front, warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) dominated the index warrants space despite the holiday shortened week in conjunction with the Birthday of the Buddha holiday in Hong Kong on Wednesday. Put warrant HSI-HGM was the most popular warrant with RM7.3mil turnover followed by call warrant HSI-CFP which saw RM6.1mil traded last week. The underlying HSI May futures contract snapped a three-week losing streak and recorded three green days out of four to end the week in the positive territory at 28,336, up 1.5% week-on-week (w-o-w). Bearish investors took home more than 5.4M units of HSI-HGM as the bid price of the put warrant finished 47.6% lower w-o-w. HSI-HGN was another put warrant which is popular among the investors, logging in RM5.6mil turnover to secure the last spot on the top traded warrant list last week

Mirroring regional weakness

Tracking the performance in the regional markets, the FBM KLCI registered its 7th
straight session of decline as investors’ sentiment remained sour; foreign funds
turned net seller for the second session (net selling of RM120.8m). Given the
negative Wall Street overnight, we believe market may perform a knee jerk selling
at the opening bell and bargain hunting activities may emerge once the selling
pressure is overdone. In the meantime, government’s discussion on possibility of
allowing interstate tourism which may be seen as a mode for gradual economic
recovery might be one of the few catalysts to cushion the downside risk for the
near term. Meanwhile, both the CPO and crude oil prices extended their retreat.

Dour trend still on horizon

The FBM KLCI finished the week lower last Friday, as foreign funds turned into net
seller; the net selling stood at RM72.6m, snapping the 4 days of inflow by the
foreign funds. However, the local bourse may see bargain hunting activities
emerging on the back of declining daily Covid-19 confirmed cases, while waiting
for Malaysia’s inflation rate that will be released this Friday. Meanwhile, both the
CPO and crude oil price declined, while Baltic Exchange Dry Index rose to 4,275, its
record high since 2009.
