SP500-CK surged 260.7% as S&P 500 futures rebounded

The Malaysia warrants market picked up more trading momentum last week with a RM407.6mil turnover, 23.4% higher than the previous week. While markets remained volatile amid the Covid-19 pandemic, global equities erased some of the earlier losses following more monetary easing by central banks plus the additional stimulus measures proposed by local governments to dampen the economic impact of the contagious virus.

The Malaysia warrants market picked up more trading momentum last week with a RM407.6mil turnover, 23.4% higher than the previous week. While markets remained volatile amid the Covid-19 pandemic, global equities erased some of the earlier losses following more monetary easing by central banks plus the additional stimulus measures proposed by local governments to dampen the economic impact of the contagious virus.

As usual, warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) dominated the warrants space with RM290.5mil. traded. The HSI futures plummeted 1,561.0 points last Monday but rebounded very strongly in the next two days to close above the 23,600 level. However, the bullish momentum did not sustain as the HSI futures finished 1.9% lower on Thursday before reversing most of the losses to close marginally above the 23,500 level on Friday, while recording an 1.9% gain week-on-week (w-o-w). Put warrant HSI-H8M emerged as the most active warrant last week with RM137.9mil. turnover. Since last Tuesday, bearish investors have accumulated a total of 12.2mil units of put warrant as the HSI futures were trading above the 23,000 level. On the other hand, call warrant HSI-C9J was second on the chart as it was popular among investors who were bullish on the Hong Kong market. By the end of last week, investors net bought more than 15.0mil. units of this call warrant.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 (SP500) warrants stole the limelight last week as the the second most traded index warrant on Bursa Malaysia after the HSI warrants with RM41.4mil turnover. The most notable one was call warrant SP500-CK which saw RM23.7mil traded and made it to the top 5 most active warrant list. 

Bargain hunters accumulated more than 13.0mil units of this call warrant last Monday as the SP500 futures dipped below 2,200 points during the morning session. Since then, the SP500 futures rallied more than 380 points to trade above the 2,600 level on Thursday as the U.S. Senate on Wednesday unanimously pass a USD2 trillion bill on Wednesday aimed at helping unemployed workers and industries hurt by the coronavirus pandemic (The Star, 26 Mar). The bid price of the call warrant tracked the SP500 futures price performance closely to record a large 260.7% gain in just 4 trading days.

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.
