The Malaysia warrants market saw further uptick in terms of trading activities last week, where the total warrants turnover increased 18.2% week-on-week (w-o-w) to RM243.1mil. Warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) appeared to be investors’ favourite with a RM138.8mil turnover, which made up 57.1% of the total warrants market. 

The HSI August futures started the week strong as a result of the Chinese technology stocks rally on Monday and Tuesday due to Tencent’s stock buyback and Cathie Wood’s buying into after a strong set of results (Business Times, 24 Aug). Despite losing some momentum towards the second half of the week, the HSI August futures is still up 2.4% w-o-w. It was a tug of war between bullish and bearish investors last week as there were 3 HSI calls and 2 HSI puts on the top 5 list of most active structured warrants on Bursa Malaysia. 

Call warrants HSI-CIL, HSI-CIG and HSI-CIQ soared 17.2%, 19.2% and 22.2% last week to track the gains in the underlying index futures. Investors should take note that warrants with higher effective gearing levels tend to experience larger price movements in percentage terms as compared to warrants with lower effective gearing levels, with all other factors kept constant. Meanwhile, bearish investors took the opportunity last week to accumulate a total of 12.1M units of HSI-HG1 as the put warrant finished 42.1% lower w-o-w. Unlike call warrants, put warrant prices will move in the opposite direction with respect to the underlying index/shares.

Kelington Group Bhd – 15Sep21

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.
