The Malaysia warrants market saw subtle trading activities last week with the turnover falling by 32.8% week-on-week (w-o-w) to RM214.5mil. Warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) saw the most drastic plunge last week with only RM112.0mil traded as the Hong Kong market was shut on Wednesday and Thursday due to Typhoon Signal No. 8 and Chung Yeung Festival.

The HSI October futures had a choppy start last week with a 1.8% gain on Monday followed by a 1.4% loss on Tuesday. However, the futures saw strong buying interest after the Hong Kong market resumed trading on Friday, finishing the week on a positive note at 25,318 points, up 2.0% w-o-w. 3 HSI call warrants were among the top 5 warrants which recorded the highest turnover with HSI-CIV being the most popular with more than RM46.9mil traded as the bid price of the call warrant soared 15.1% w-o-w. 

Besides, investors also heavily traded the shorter dated HSI-CIG and HSI-CIL which will expire on 28 October 2021 and 29 November 2021. Investors are encouraged to trade longer dated warrants instead of shorter dated warrants as longer dated warrants generally experience lower time decay as compared to warrants with shorter time to expiry. Therefore, investors should be mindful of the expiry date when selecting warrants based on their own trading timeframe. On the other hand, investors who were bearish on the HSI futures took home 4.7mil units of put warrant HSI-HG8 out of the total 166.7mil units traded last week.

On the local front, warrants over My E.G Services (MYEG), Bumi Armada (ARMADA) and Genting emerged on investors’ radar. The share price of MYEG traded above the RM1.05-mark last week for the first time since March 2021 while it rose 12.2% w-o-w. The top 3 most active MYEG warrants were MYEG-C1U, MYEG-C2D and MYEG-C1P which posted weekly gains of 36.8%, 29.0% and 71.4%, respectively. Elsewhere, investors also traded more than RM4.4mil in call warrant ARMADA-C64 last week as ARMADA shares closed at the highest level this year at RM0.535 last Friday.

Engages in the design and development of automated test equipment (ATE) and test and measuring instruments (TMI) for the semiconductor industry.

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.
