Mah Sing and AirAsia warrants joined the bandwagon

The Malaysia warrants market recorded a RM809.8mil turnover last week, which is 1.7% higher than the prior week due to renewed interest in stocks which were badly beaten down due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Malaysia warrants market recorded a RM809.8mil turnover last week, which is 1.7% higher than the prior week due to renewed interest in stocks which were badly beaten down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Nonetheless, warrants over rubber glove stocks continued to dominate the warrants space with RM455.4mil traded, which made up more than 56.2% of the total warrants market. 

Supermax, Mah Sing and Top Glove were among the most popular rubber glove underlyings last week. The shares of rubber glove players experienced heavy selling pressure throughout last week before staging small rebounds on Friday following RHB Investment Bank’s statement that the Covid-19 vaccine deployment could be a new demand source for rubber gloves at up to 18bil pieces a year assuming that 60% of the world’s population of 7.5bil will get the vaccine in two doses annually (The Edge Markets, 19 Nov).

Call warrant SUPERMX-C1I was crowned the top traded warrant last week with 220.1mil units traded, followed by MAHSING-C30 and TOPGLOV-C84 which ranked third and fifth on the list with 91.8mil and 63.9mil units traded, respectively. Last week, investors took home a total of 11.5mil units of MAHSING-C30 which resulted in this call warrant being close to sold out. Investors should practise caution when trading sold out warrants as the warrant’s market bid price may be inflated by other investors queuing in the market.

Following the positive vaccine developments by Pfizer and BioNTech on 9 November, another American biotech company Moderna Inc said on Monday that its experimental Covid-19 vaccine was 94.5% effective in preventing the disease. Budget airline operator AirAsia Group finished in the green for the second consecutive week as its share price recorded an 8.3% week-on-week (w-o-w) gain on hopes of the upliftment of travel bans. Call warrant AIRASIA-C1J secured the fourth spot on the top traded warrant list with 80.4mil units traded as the warrant price jumped 25.0% w-o-w.

Meanwhile, put warrant HSI-HDI came in second on the top traded list. Out of the total 120.7mil units traded, bearish investors accumulated more than 5.0mil units as the warrant’s bid price fell 35.0% w-o-w, moving in an opposite direction to the 1.1% weekly gains in the Hang Seng Index futures.

Bargain hunting may take shape

The FBM KLCI surrendered its gains amid hawkish comments from the Feds, alongside its regional peers. However, with the strong rebound overnight on Wall Street, coupled with the gradual subsiding in Covid-19 daily cases, bargain hunting may lift the sentiment on the local bourse. Also, we believe market participants should focus on recovery theme stocks given the vaccination rate is improving in Malaysia. Meanwhile, the oil price climbed near the USD75 on the back of weaker USD; while the CPO price continued its downtrend move.

Jaks Resources Bhd – 21st Jun 21

JAKS is primed for charting new heights, supported by the diversification into the long-term recurring income from the power generation concession in Vietnam, coupled with the on-going efforts to improve tenancy ratio under the property development segment. Whilst the concession segment will generate earnings sustainability, current construction orderbook of RM281.3m is able to provide earnings visibility till 2022. We assigned a P/E multiple of 9.0x to all, but the concession segment that is valued on a discounted cash flow approach, arriving at a fair value of RM0.72.

Striding high, but volatility still a feature

The FBM KLCI snapped the three consecutive sessions of losses on the back of bargain hunting activities after recent selldown, bucking the downtrend in the regional markets. Investors may continue to stay defensive amid the ongoing battle of the Covid-19 health pandemic and the recent political developments, but the downside risks may be cushioned by the rising daily vaccination rate as the government target to achieve 80% herd immunity by the third quarter of this year. Meanwhile, the constituents changes following the semi-annual review of the FTSE Bursa Malaysia Index Series will be taking effect today.
