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.

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.
