TM-C41 took over the stock warrant space

Warrants Commentary (27 May to 31 May)

The Malaysian warrants market was revived last week following the shorter trading week in the preceding week, sporting a turnover of RM452.5mil, 63.0% higher than the preceding week. Telecommunications giant Telekom Malaysia (TM) reported a net profit of RM308.3mil for the first quarter ended 31 March  2019, almost doubling the net profit of RM157.2mil for the same period a year ago. The sizable growth can be attributed to a reduction in TM’s operating costs. The share price of TM soared 27.2% following the positive news to close at RM3.46 on Thursday (30 May), the highest level since August 2018. Call warrant TM-C41 was the most notable warrant over TM with RM3.0mil traded on Thursday (30 May) and a total RM7.7mil traded last week. TM-C41 tracked the underlying price movement closely, gaining a substantial 267.7% week-on-week (w-o-w).

Meanwhile, low cost carrier AirAsia Group (AirAsia) was another Malaysian listed company that made headlines last week. The company posted a 92.0% drop in net profit to RM96.1mil for the first quarter ended 31 March 2019, but declared a record-high special dividend of 90 sen per share. AirAsia shares extended their 5 days of gain to close at RM2.89 last Friday, posting the best weekly performance in the last 6 months. Call warrant AIRASIA-C83 came in second to TM-C41 on the top traded stock warrant list with a RM4.39mil turnover. On Thursday and Friday, we saw investors selling back a total of 1.8mil units of AIRASIA-C83 as the bid price surged 88.9% w-o-w.

In foreign news, the trade dispute between US and China escalated further last week as China has been reported to have plans to retaliate by restricting exports of rare earth minerals to the US (Reuters, 29 May), which could impact not just the tech sector, but the energy, automobile and defense industries as well. Global equities including the Hang Seng Index (HSI) futures were trading in the negative territory throughout the week, with the HSI futures finishing at 26,717.0 points last Friday. A total of RM351.5mil worth of HSI warrants were traded last week, capturing 77.7% of the total warrants market turnover. Put warrant HSI-H6S was the most active warrant last week with RM70.3mil traded, followed by call warrant HSI-C5Q with a turnover of RM59.4mil.

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.
