Rocky week for glove names despite FBMKLCI moving higher

Call warrant TOPGLOV-C1L made it into the top warrants list with 35.7mil units traded, while other warrants such as call warrant SUPERMX-C1Z and put warrant SUPERMX-HF also led the pack. TOPGLOV-C1L has relatively longer time to expiry as it expires on 8 October 2021, meaning it experiences relatively lower time decay i.e. lower holding costs for investors.

Despite the country’s Covid-19 cases continuing to record new highs, the local benchmark FBM KLCI closed in the green each day last week, ending the week 2.1% higher at 1,594.44 points. However, the shares of Malaysia’s largest glove makers bucked the trend to close in the red all week, as the United States Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) issued a second finding following its seizure of two of Top Glove’s shipments earlier in the month, and that Supermax may be excluded as a constituent of the FBM KLCI after just 6 months. Top Glove shares were down 4.1% week-on-week (w-o-w), while Supermax shares were down 10.9% w-o-w. 

Call warrant TOPGLOV-C1L made it into the top warrants list with 35.7mil units traded, while other warrants such as call warrant SUPERMX-C1Z and put warrant SUPERMX-HF also led the pack. TOPGLOV-C1L has relatively longer time to expiry as it expires on 8 October 2021, meaning it experiences relatively lower time decay i.e. lower holding costs for investors.

Meanwhile, the shares of D & O Green Technologies rebounded in recent weeks, buoyed further by the release of its first quarter results last Monday (24 May), reporting a revenue of almost double of last year’s quarter, with its net profit up almost 7 times year-on-year to RM29.7mil. After closing at RM4.20 on the previous Friday (21 May), it rose 6.9% over three days to RM4.49, before falling 4.7% on Friday to finish the week at RM4.28, 1.9% higher w-o-w. The call warrant D&O-CI saw 25.3mil units traded as it correspondingly rose 6.7% w-o-w. 

Given investors’ cautious sentiments on potentially stricter restrictions in the country, warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) took up a larger percentage of turnover at 37% versus 27% in the previous week. The HSI had a good week, rising over 750 points on Tuesday and Wednesday, and securing most of its gains to end the week at 29,124.41 points, 2.3% higher w-o-w. 

As the HSI rose on Tuesday, investors net bought 11mil units and 4.5mil units of put warrants HSI-HGM and HSI-HGN respectively, and net sold call warrants HSI-CFK and HSI-CFP as they rose 60% and 35% respectively. In view of the public holiday on Wednesday, investors continued to accumulate the puts when market reopened Thursday. Last week’s movements placed all these HSI warrants in the top traded list, with put warrant HSI-HGM taking the crown at 79.1mil units traded.

Serba Dinamik Holdings Bhd – 25th Jun 21

The on-going saga that resulted in diminishing of investors’ confidence is expected to see both institutional and retail investors continue to keep their hands off for the time being. Hence, we reiterate our stance to advise investors to steer clear of further position, pending for further clarity from the special independent audit review. Under the prevailing market events, on-going coverage is now impracticable to comply with applicable regulations and hence, we have decided to suspend our coverage on Serba Dinamik. Given the prolonged uncertainties, we have now lowered our valuations metrics and our fair value is RM0.57 (down from RM1.30).

Dour trend may persist

The unabated Covid-19 spread in the country which may lead to further pressure on the economy, coupled with the concerns over the revised nation’s growth projection by World Bank have sent the FBM KLCI lower. Following a heavy selldown, we might anticipate bargain hunting activities to emerge on the local bourse. On a side note, the government has approved the licence and incentives for Risen Energy Co Ltd to manufacture solar cells and solar modules in Malaysia amounting to RM42.2bn, which would make Malaysia an integrated production hub for solar products.

Chin Well Holdings Bhd – 24th Jun 21

We are ceasing coverage on Chin Well Holdings Bhd due to reallocation of internal resources and the lack of retail and institutional interest. We expect trading activities to also taper in tandem with the commodities price which appears to have peaked as the Chinese government has step in to tame the surging prices by releasing industrial metals from its national reserves this month as it is difficult for manufacturers to transfer these costs to the end-users. Our last recommendation on Chin Well was HOLD with a fair value at RM1.29. The fair value is derived from ascribing a target PER of 11.0x to its FY22f EPS of 11.7 sen.

Hovering near support

The FBM KLCI failed to extend its gains amid pervasive negative sentiment and weak buying interest, bucking the regional uptrend. With the World Bank cutting Malaysia’s 2021 GDP growth projection amid slower-than-expected economic recovery, the sideways trade is likely to persist without a fresh catalyst under the current economic and public health crisis. Investors may also look at the US’s 1Q21 GDP growth rate, while Bank of England’s interest rate decision, which will be releasing tonight. Commodities wise, the oil price has risen above the USD 75 per barrel level.
