TM and MYEG draw attention as investors await G20 outcome

Warrants Commentary (24 June to 28 June)

Trading in structured warrants over Malaysian shares grew a fair share this week; top names include Telekom Malaysia (TM) and My EG Services (MYEG). Warrants over shares comprised 22.8% of turnover (RM101.5mil) last week, compared to 15.4% (RM89.2mil) in the previous week. However, trading in warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) and iShares China A50 Index ETF slowed last week, though they still comprised 72.7% and 4.0% of turnover, respectively. 

The top warrant over shares last week was once again the call warrant over TM, TM-C41, with 39.6mil units traded. TM was in the spotlight in June as its share price soared following the release of its better-than-expected results for the first quarter ended 31 March 2019. TM shares are up 10.8% month-to-date (MTD), while TM-C41’s warrant price is up 42.9% MTD. Meanwhile, TM-C47, a warrant that was listed last Tuesday, saw 16.5mil units traded. This warrant has an exercise price of RM4.00, the highest among all TM warrants listed on Bursa Malaysia.

Meanwhile, MYEG shares have been rocky this past week. The shares fell 3.4% on Monday but clawed its way back to end the week 1.4% higher week-on-week. Call warrant MYEG-C68 saw 37.8mil units traded, while MYEG-C65 was the second most popular MYEG warrant with 21.8mil units traded. Between the two, MYEG-C68 has a higher effective gearing level of 3.5 times compared to MYEG-C65’s 3.3 times, as MYEG-C68 has a higher exercise price of RM1.85 compared to MYEG-C65’s RM1.50. 

As for warrants over foreign indices, investors stood on the sidelines as they await the G20 summit. At the time of writing, the trade talk between Trump and Xi was done early Saturday, with the US saying the outcome was “better than expected”, and China saying that the US has agreed not to impose any further tariffs on Chinese goods. 

Two call warrants over the HSI, HSI-C5J and HSI-C5P, were at the top of the list with 278.7mil and 234.9mil units traded respectively, despite the HSI rising only 0.2% over the week to close at 28,542.6 points. Investors should note that HSI-C5J expires at the end of July, and exercise caution as a warrant’s time value will decay at the quickest rate in the last one-third of its life.

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.

Established historical track record since inception in 1975 with strong brand presence in the Malaysia household market. Demand will be relatively healthy, owing to the rising awareness of personal hygiene following the Covid-19 pandemic. Disposal of loss-making toilet rolls and tissue manufacturing subsidiary; NTMP Paper Mill (Bentong) Sdn Bhd allow the group to streamline and focus on the existing core businesses. Technically, price has experienced a flag-formation breakout above RM0.73, targeting the next resistances at RM0.795-0.815 with long term target at RM0.90.

Swift recovery

Expectedly, the FBM KLCI performed a swift recovery as the key index recouped most of its previous session losses to re-claim the 1,600 psychological level. We reckon some stability will ensue with further upsides are in the cards as investors continue to focus on the economic recovery progress. Meanwhile, we believe that the lower liners will continue to enjoy their upward momentum as liquidity remains well on the equities market with investors capitalising on the positive market sentiment.

Tempered by MSCI portfolio re-balancing

The FBM KLCI started off the week on a dour note alongside with the weakness across regional peers on the increasing geopolitical tension between US and China. Still, the FBM KLCI recorded 95.82 pts on gain (+6.5% MoM) during November 2020. Although we see renewed volatility unfolding, we reckon that bargain hunting activities may take precedence after the sharp fall yesterday. On the other hand, we think that the lower liners are poised for further upsides, driven by the improved trading liquidity which may extend the rotational play.
