Warrants Commentary (14 Sep to 18 Sep)

The Malaysian warrants market saw a dip in trading last week with the total warrants turnover coming in at RM932.2mil, down by approximately 10.4% from RM1.04bil a week ago due to a shorter trading week in conjunction with the Malaysia Day holiday on 16 September. Warrants over Malaysian shares were still the major contributor to the total warrants turnover making up approximately 93.3% with a total value traded of RM869.6mil, followed by warrants over the Hang Seng Index (HSI) which recorded a total value  traded of RM56.8mil, approximately 6.1% of the total warrants turnover.

Rubber glove makers still took on the centre stage last week with higher price volatility. All eyes were on glove giant Top Glove Corporation as it reported its best quarterly net profit on Thursday with RM1.29bil for 4QFY20 ended 31 August 2020, which is almost 18 times the RM74.17mil posted last year (The Edge Markets, 17 Sep). Its share price however, took a beating post earnings to tumble 7.6% to finish at RM7.79 on Thursday, before staging a minor rebound to end Friday at RM7.98, up 2.8% week-on-week (w-o-w). The volatile week also saw the share price of Supermax jumping a staggering 20% on Monday to close at RM9.00 before sinking for the next three days to end the week still up by 1.3% at RM7.60 on Friday. 

The holiday shortened week saw call warrants SUPERMX-C1I, TOPGLOV-C81 and TOPGLOV-C84 taking the top three spots of the most actively traded warrants with a total of 346.3mil, 166.2mil and 157.4 mil units traded, respectively. TOPGLOV-C81 was also the top traded warrant by value last week with a total turnover of RM90.6mil, followed by TOPGLOV-C84 with up to RM67.7mil in value traded. HARTA-C59 and SUPERMX-C1E were also among the popular warrants traded with a total volume of 112.2mil and 108.6mil units, respectively. 

Glove makers aside, warrants over the HSI were also quite popular among investors especially with the underlying HSI futures swinging within a range of 24,198 – 24,898 last week. Call warrants HSI-C9V and HSI-C9U clocked in 84.2mil and 70.3mil units respectively while put warrant HSI-HAY saw a total of 62.6mil units changing hands. The spot month September HSI futures contract ended the week little changed at 24,456.0.

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.
