The total warrants turnover fell 13.7% to below RM1.0bil at RM863.8mil for the week ended 25 September 2020. Warrants over the Malaysian counters continued to be the biggest contributor to the warrants market, representing almost 90% of turnover, followed by warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) which contributed 7.9% to the overall warrants’ market share. 

Despite the recent political turmoil and news of ongoing vaccine trials, the share price of Malaysian rubber glove makers rebounded amid resurging Covid-19 cases in Europe, which has renewed investors’ interests in these counters. Top Glove saw a gain of 10.3% week-on-week (w-o-w), Hartalega and Supermax rose 20.1% and 22.7% w-o-w, respectively while Kossan Rubber surged 14.2% w-o-w. 

Two call warrants over Supermax i.e. SUPERMX-C1I and SUPERMX-C1E secured their positions in the top five most traded warrants. SUPERMX-C1I recorded the highest trading volume of 226.6 mil units while SUPERMX-C1E had investors trading a total 87.2 mil units throughout the week. Meanwhile, two call warrants over Top Glove namely TOPGLOV-C81 and TOPGLOV-C84 continued to be actively traded with both warrants recording a total trading volume of 164.3 mil units and 121.0 mil units, respectively. 

On the foreign front, it was a bumpy ride last week as the Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index (HSI) posted the biggest weekly decline since March this year, plunging 5.0% w-o-w as concerns persisted that a global recovery will falter amid the lack of a fresh stimulus package in the US and a spike in coronavirus cases in Europe (South China Morning Post, 25 Sep).  Call warrant HSI-C9V which will expire on 30 October 2020 remained investors’ favorite with investors net buying 25.3 mil units out of the 139.1 mil units traded. This call warrant, which tracks the underlying index, fell 73.0% as its bid price closed at RM0.050 on Friday (25 Sept). HSI-C9V is a shorter dated warrant with only a month of left to expiry. Investors should take note that warrants with shorter time to expiry will experience steeper time decay, which is an additional holding cost for investors.

Finding stability

The FBM KLCI endured a choppy trading session before bargain hunting activities took charge to power the key index higher yesterday. For now, we reckon that the local bourse may attempt to find stability with nibbling on beaten down stocks. Although the prevailing negative market sentiment is deterring investors to take large positions, the lower liners may continue to see rotational play, boosted by the higher than historical average trading activities.

Downward bias consolidation resumes

It was another bleak performance on the local bourse that was marred by the selling pressure from gloves heavyweights yesterday. The near term weakness is expected to prevail as any recovery will be tempered by quick profit taking activities. Nevertheless, we still think that rotational play will remain on the table that is buoyed by rise in trading activities as of late, though the negative market sentiment are also keeping gains in check. Hence, we advocate traders to lock in quick profits, avoiding to holding position for too long.
