Warrants Commentary (2 to 6 December)

Last week, the Malaysia warrants market saw a general slowdown in trading activity as we entered into the first week of December, though warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) still maintained an average daily turnover of RM37.2mil. Total turnover came up to RM247.5mil, a decline from RM319.3mil in the previous week. 

On Monday, the HSI started the week off slow, rising 0.4%. On Tuesday, the HSI declined 0.2%, causing bearish investors to collect 2.9mil put warrant HSI-H8F and close to 1mil put warrant HSI-H8E. On Wednesday, the HSI fell a further 1.2% to 26,062.6 points as investors react to fresh trade war worries following US President Donald Trump’s fresh tariffs against Brazil and Argentina, and his comments that a trade deal with China might have to wait till after the 2020 US presidential elections (CNBC, 3 Dec). Investors took profit on the put warrants, namely 4.8mil HSI-H8F and 2.3mil HSI-H8E, and collected the call warrants, namely 7mil HSI-C7K and 3.1mil HSI-C7F.

Bullish investors were rewarded as the HSI rebounded over the following two days, rising a total 1.7% to finish the week at 26,498.4 points, 0.6% higher week-on-week (w-o-w). With the increase, call warrants HSI-C7K and HSI-C7F appreciated over 20% over these two days, causing investors to take profit on 17.2mil HSI-C7K and 15.1mil HSI-C7F.

Last week, the put warrant HSI-H8F, which was the top traded warrant for three weeks in a row, finally fell to second place with RM50.4mil traded. This put warrant expires at the end of the month on 30 December 2019. Investors still trading this warrant should take note that warrants close to expiry will experience faster time decay than warrants with longer time to expiry. This means that the warrant price will decrease over time even if the underlying price does not change. Call warrant HSI-C7K, expiring on 27 February 2020, took over the top spot as investors turned bullish following the declines earlier in the week. This warrant saw RM85.3mil traded.

On the Malaysian front, put warrant FBMKLCI-H8X over the local benchmark FBM KLCI still saw interest this week with RM5.8mil traded as the FBM KLCI rose 0.4% w-o-w to 1,568.4 points. Over last week, we saw interest in warrants over various Malaysian companies, including Pentamaster Corporation, Guan Chong, Dayang Enterprise and FGV Holdings. Popular warrants include PENTA-CF, GCB-CL, DAYANG-C1 and FGV-C85.

Serba Dinamik Holdings Berhad

The latest win is a testament of Serba Dinamik’s position as one of the major
players in the oil & gas industry. Assuming a burn rate of approximately RM400.0m
in December 2020, Serba Dinamik’s outstanding orderbook will come at RM18.3bn
by end-2020; within our assumption of RM18.5bn.

Commendable breakthrough

The FBM KLCI delivered another commendable performance amid optimism that
Malaysia economy is widely touted to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic slump
following the recent progress of Covid-19 vaccine developments. Still, we reckon
that the strong upsides may also attract quick profit taking activities over the
interim. At the same time, the lower liners are set for the extended rally that is
largely driven by the ample of liquidity as investors continue to seek for higher
yields investments.

Market momentum still sturdy

The FBM KLCI edged mildly lower as sentiment turned downbeat as investors booked in gains from the previous session rally. While the local bourse is demonstrating some mild weakness, we reckon that the general recovery trend is still intact as the attention remains focus on the pace of economic recovery. The positive development over the Covid-19 vaccine will also continue to aid the recovery progress. Meanwhile, the lower liners are expected to charge higher, driven by the ample liquidity with the equities market remain in favour.

AME Elite Consortium Bhd – 2nd Dec 20

The proposed AME REIT would also provide stable and recurring income to investors, with at least 90.0% of its income to be distributed as dividends to unitholders. We note that slightly more than half of the current tenants of the industrial properties has more than 5 years of lease under their agreements. Additionally, AME REIT is expected to benefit from lower tax rate compared to prevailing corporate tax rate at an average of 23.4% recorded over the past 4 years.
