Gloves up again

Although most of the key index components trended lower, the FBM KLCI managed to trend higher owing to gains in glove heavyweights as the number of Covid-19 cases across the globe remained elevated. In the meantime, FTSE Russell has retained Malaysia bonds in the watch list will provide some alleviation for the prospects of further foreign capital flight. The lower liners and broader market shares are expected to experience a consolidation phase as investors may turn more defensive ahead of the Sabah state election over the weekend.

Marred by political uncertainty

Following the renewed local political uncertainty, coupled with the dour note set by Wall Street overnight, we see the FBM KLCI to endure further volatility. The selling was more pronounced as foreign funds (YTD: outflow of RM21.65bn) continue to shy away from Malaysia equities. The lower liners and broader market shares will remain under pressure as sentiment turned dour as of late, while investors will be keeping an eye on the FTSE Russell decision on keeping Malaysia in the World Government Bond Index.

Despite yesterday recovery which was mainly led by bargain hunting activities, the near term outlook remains indifferent with uncertainties remain on the table.

In the meantime, the lower liners are also going on an extended consolidation spell as traders were quick to lock in any profits.

Accelerated selling

Following the tepid market sentiment, we continue to see the local bourse to undergo an extended downward bias consolidation spell. The uncertainty in both domestic and overseas political avenue, rising number of Covid-19 cases and toppish market condition continues to weigh on the performance on the local bourse. The lower liners were not spared as trading activities starts in taper ahead of the end of blanket loan moratorium.

Warrants over glovemakers remain in focus

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.

With the firm trend in FCPO, traders would have noticed the buying support for plantation has grown in the past few trading days on Bursa Exchange.

The consolidation on the local bourse is expected take shape over the foreseeable future amid the lack of fresh leads.

Rebound taking a pause

After marching higher for three consecutive days, the FBM KLCI appears to have taken a breather, allowing earlier gains to be digested whilst re-asses the current market condition. We reckon that a consolidation may take shape in view of the lack of fresh leads. The renewed volatility will keep traders on their toes as quick profit taking activities may limit any significant upsides over the near term.

Crude palm oil prices (CPO) have now soared beyond RM2,900/MT level; the highest since January 2020 amid the improving demand prospects. The positive momentum is driven by the lingering trade spat between US and China which will see the latter shifting their purchases to CPO as opposed to soybean. On the local front, the export tax exemption since Jun-2020 till end-2020 will drive price to be competitive at international levels. We reckon the demand will be sustainable, premised to the recent strings of better-than-expected economic data from China with palm oil shipments from Malaysia during the period 1-15 September 2020 rose 12.4% MoM to 780,305 tonnes.

We see the positive sentiment to take charge over the foreseeable future as investors returned to bargain hunt on beaten down stocks, but we caution that significant gains would likely to be choppy. The positive momentum continues to be spurred by the stronger-than-expected economic data worldwide. At the same time, the impending release of Top Glove Corporation Bhd’s quarterly financial performance may also provide fresh legs to extend the upside.

The FBM KLCI remained upbeat with investors continue to seek for higher yields in the equities markets. Tracking the gains on Wall Street overnight, the positive momentum may spill over to the local bourse. Meanwhile, the robust trading sentiment will continue to see rotational play on the table over the near term. However, we also see bouts of quick profit taking activities ahead of the mid-week break.

Given that there are no signs of abating in the new numbers of Covid-19, we see demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) to remain sturdy overtime. According to Statista (German market data specialist), global PPE market is expected to balloon from US$52.0bn in 2019 to US$93.0bn in 2027. Concerns over the confirmed Covid-19 cases (more than 200,000 daily since 20-Jul-20) likely to ensure demand remains intact. The retracement in gloves-related stocks in recent weeks suggests that weakness is likely to be overdone, primed for recovery. Also, we see valuations have turned more compelling at current juncture.
market pulse

Recovery in store

We see signs on changing tides as the FBM KLCI will be largely dictated by the movement in glove maker heavyweights. Gains across overseas markets may provide some stability over the near term, but we do not discount further volatility ahead due to a barrage lingering uncertainties. At the same time, the positive sentiment transpired to gains across the lower liners as investors bargain hunt on the recent selldown.
market pulse

Mild bargain hunting activities may emerge

Given the decline move on Wall Street, we believe the FBM KLCI’s upside could be limited and traders are advice to trade only on those fundamentally sound stocks as both the FBM Small Cap and FBM ACE are trending lower at this moment. Hence, probability of making gains over the near term could be rather limited.

Tracking the gains on Wall Street overnight, the FBM KLCI may stage a recovery back above the 1,500 level. The lower liners that were in a purple patch in recent days may also find some support as bargain hunting activities comes into centre stage. In the meantime, investors will be keeping an eye on Bank Negara monetary decision today.

Starting the week smoothly despite weaker sentiment

We have been facing some headwinds in the market since last Friday on the broader market and we noticed trading volume and value on the Bursa Exchange have been lower over the past four trading days, the trading volume was below 10bn shares traded, while trading value was below RM5bn as compared to a week ago. We believe this coincides with the lifting of loan moratorium this month and market participants could have started to trade slower and reduce their exposure in the markets to repay their loans.

Technical Focus – 9th Sep 20

The recent volatility has sent stocks across Bursa Malaysia into a bloodbath as investors scrambled to offload their holdings for various reasons such as the souring US-China trade relations, domestic political uncertainty, mixed bag of economic data and toppish valuations following the run-up in recent months. We reckon that choppiness may prevail as investors are also taking this opportunity to offload their holdings ahead of the end of blanket loan moratorium. At the same time, investors are opting to stay at the side lines due to the lack of fresh catalysts.

Re-testing 1,500

We see the consolidation to linger over the near term on the FBM KLCI as gains will be measured by the weakness from glove heavyweights. For now, any strong recovery will be tempered by quick profit taking activities. The lower liners may continue to endure a rough ride on the back of the negative market breadth, although there are some pockets of opportunities for a rebound play.

DSONIC is banking on four major national projects, namely; (i) National Integrated Immigration System, (ii) i-KAD project, (iii) Digital MyKad (e-KYC) project and (iv) Electronic Medical Records (EMR). We believe the current outstanding orderbook is able to provide earnings visibility for the next 3-5 years. Although earnings may be subdued in FY21f, we reckon a strong recovery will take place in FY22f, increasing by 157.6% YoY to RM70.1m. DSONIC could justify by pegging its FY22f EPS of 5.2 sen to P/E of 31.0x (+1 SD against 5Y historical average of 25.0x), arriving at a fair value of RM1.61.

Attempting for a rebound

The lack of fresh leads kept investors at bay as the recent batch of corporate earnings offers little direction on the prospects of swift economic recovery. For now, we reckon that a consolidation on the local bourse remain on course over the foreseeable future.

After last week’s dour performance, we think that volatility will remain on the table, although any potential recovery will be measured for the time being in view of the lack of fresh leads. Investors may turned more risk averse as demonstrated by the slower trading activities, waiting for stability to kick-in. We are also cautious on the falling trading activities that indicate investors turning more risk averse for the time being.

Renewed volatility

It appears that the downside momentum may linger given that the FBM KLCI failed to build onto its previous session gains. We opine that the renewed volatility across global equities may send the local bourse to end the week on a soft footing. Meanwhile, the lower liners could also be due for a pullback, premised to their toppish valuations.

Turning the tide

The FBM KLCI appears to have found its footing as the key index staged a solid recovery from near the oversold region. We expect more gains to come by on the recent positivity on the Covid-19 situation, whilst capitalising on the positive global economic data. Also, we see the lower liners continue their quest on recovery driven by the ample trading liquidity rising on the upbeat market undertone.

It was another lacklustre performance on the FBM KLCI as strong gains at the start of the trading bell were tempered by quick profit taking activities. While we do not discount the possibility of a recovery from the last week steep falls, gains will be measured with the wariness still very much a feature of the current market environment. On the other hand, we continue to see the lower liners faring on a better note backed by the extended rotational play.

After three consecutive days of pullback, we think bargain hunting activities may emerge, albeit at a mild level to provide some support to the local bourse.

Despite that, it was a tale of two half with the lower liners continues their quest of recovery supported by the buoyant trading activities.

Expectedly, quick profit taking sent the FBM KLCI alongside with major indices to close in the red. The weakness was compounded by the sluggish 2Q2020 GDP growth data that came below consensus expectations.

Elsewhere, we see rotational play amongst the lower liners to dominate the market sentiment with trading volumes rising to fresh record high again.
market pulse

Weakness Prevails

We reckon that the FBM KLCI will remain in the consolidation mode with mild bargain hunting activities to take precedence. Any weakness is likely to be cushioned by gains in glove heavyweights. On the other hand, the lower liners, particularly FBM ACE stocks will be spurred by the record high trading volumes.

Investors look to puts for downside protection

The warrants market in Malaysia witnessed yet another exciting week with RM1.6bil traded. Despite a shorter trading week as the market is shut on Friday in conjunction with the Hari Raya Haji celebration, the total turnover is up 7.6% week-on-week (w-o-w) as investors continue to favour warrants over Malaysian stocks such as Hartalega Holdings, Topglove Corporation and many more.

market pulse

Dampened by Political Instability

Market sentiment was grappled with renewed volatility as investors were quick to offload their holdings after the Malaysia’s political situation took another agenda with the dissolution of Sabah state assembly. We expect the volatility to remain a feature as investors will be brace by a barrage of corporate earnings releases towards the end of the month which takes into account of the full impact of Movement Control Order (MCO).

No breakthrough, yet.

The dovish tone set by the US Federal Reserve in regards to the low interest rate environment implies that liquidity will remain within the stockmarkets and assets that deliver higher yields. For now, the FBM KLCI is also largely on track to deliver its biggest monthly gain since October 2011, whilst the both the FBM Small Cap and FBM Fledgling are still on course for a V-shaped recovery

market pulse

Back Above 1,600

The FBM KLCI delivered a solid performance and that looks to persist over the near term as the market was brighten up again by the rally in glovemakers stocks. At the same time the stronger ringgit against the Greenback may provide some impetus for further gains. Despite that, we caution that gains will be capped by the weakness on Wall Street overnight, while investor will monitor for developments surrounding the two-day US Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting.

Vibrant Participation from Retailers Boosts Bursa Malaysia Exchange

Since MCO, we noticed strong retailer’s participation hovering around 22-41% (average 32%) of total trading volumes in 2020; this is an important journey where retailer’s participation normally would range between 16-25% over the past few years. Given the decent participation from traders and investors, we are developing some great tools to provide great trading opportunities for clients. Hence the creation of our M+ Wiz is to identify real-time opportunities for traders.
market pulse

Improved Sentiment

We expect the consolidation on the local bourse to prolong as any gains will be punctuated by quick profit taking activities. Nevertheless, the sustainable high trading volumes suggest that trading opportunities are still prevalent within the broader market and lower liners, particularly FBM-ACE listed stocks as investors continue their quest to seek for high yield investments.

Glove names continue to be in the limelight

Although the overall warrants turnover saw a decline of 27.2% last week, it still recorded a turnover above the RM1bil mark at RM1.4bil. Warrants over Malaysian shares were the biggest contributor, comprising approximately 90% of the total turnover, followed by warrants over the volatile Hang Seng Index (HSI), which contributed 7.7% of the total turnover.

market pulse

Global Political Uncertainty Woes

Following the rising geopolitical tension between the two economic powerhouses, we reckon that the weakness may prolong on the local bourse as investors turned wary particularly after the recent upward swing. As it is, the negative market breadth also suggests that gains could be choppy over the near term.
market pulse

Building up Momentum

The upbeat momentum on the FBM KLCI continues to be induced by the strong performance on glovemakers heavyweights. Gains, however, may be limited owing to the weakness on Wall Street overnight which may permeates to the Asia equities. Amid the rising number of Covid-19 cases, the buying momentum in glove makers stocks may provide some cushion to further weakness.

SLP Resources Bhd – 23rd July 2020

Moving forward, SLP will focus on production of essential packaging products for food & beverages (F&B), hygiene and healthcare sectors. The shift in consumer behaviour from dining out to take-away and home cook is deemed as an opportunity for plastic packaging products players to capitalise.
market pulse

KLCI Still in Consolidation Mode

With the lack of follow-through buying interest, we see the FBM KLCI remain in consolidation as the recent glove-induced rally might be taking a breather. At the same time, the lofty valuations might cap further gains at this current juncture. Nevertheless, the ample liquidity driven market may continue to provide further trading opportunities as rotational plays dominate the current market scenario.

Financial institutions in Malaysia have declared that extension of loan moratorium is off the table, with options for repayment to targeted groups; suggests that the potential spike in non-performing-loans in the final quarter of the year will be contained and the nation is on track for recovery. Further stimulus from central banks across (EU and Japan) and positive developments vaccine for Covid-19 may further contribute to the positive sentiment.
market pulse

Still Wobbly

After a pullback yesterday, we think that mild bargain hunting activities will take charge as investors’ risk appetite remains well within the equities market. This is demonstrated by the rising trading activities as of late which may see rotational play to stay firm over the foreseeable future. In the meantime, expectations over further stimulus measures to combat the economic slowdown due to the rising number of Covid-19 cases may provide further boost the recovery

Another volatile week for glove names

The Malaysian warrants market hit yet another record high turnover last week with RM1.98bil traded, averaging at about RM396mil per day. The share prices of glove makers swung wildly through the week, their increased volatility and stream of newsflow further attracting investors’ interest.
market pulse

Bouncing Back

Following the strong recovery led by gains in glove heavyweights, we expect the positive momentum to continue as investors build onto their position, capitalising on the pullback of healthcare-related stocks. At the same time, the positive market undertone, coupled with the prevailing low interest rate environment may also drive rotational play amongst the lower liners as retail participants continue to adopt the hit-and-run technique in penny stocks.

The recent quarterly result (1QFY20) was mainly impacted by disruption of work site progress in China due to the lockdown since January 2020 and Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia since March 2020. Although we expect further weakness in next quarter bottom line, we are sanguine on the recovery in 2HFY20, supported by outstanding orderbook of RM321.0m, of which RM149.0m was secured in the first four months in FY20 to provide earnings visibility over the next 12-18 months.
market pulse

Further Retracement in Store

Tracking the negative Wall Street performance, we expect profit taking activities on gloves sector may continue and the FBM KLCI is likely to see further consolidation today. Despite the rising Covid-19 confirmed cases, the developments of Covid-19 vaccines are surfacing in the news media; thus it could dampen the buying support on overall glove stocks in the near term.

We are sanguine that earnings recovery will be materialise from FY21 on the back of the resumption of supply chain such as concrete, cement, steel and etc
market pulse

Consolidation in Place

We see the consolidation on the FBM KLCI taking shape as the rally in glove heavyweights lose steam following the positive developments from Moderna in their clinical trial test on Covid-19 patients. For now, investors will be keeping an eye on China’s 2Q2020 GDP data today as a yardstick to economic recovery performance after lifting the lockdown.

1H20 Review & 3Q20 Outlook

Consensus are expecting a slowdown in economic activities for 2020, but we believe the stimulus packages from several central banks would be able to cushion the downside risk and may translate to a potential recovery in 2021. For the local markets, we expect the trading interest to crowd around gloves or healthcare stocks.

We reckon that vehicle sales will see gradual improvement after vehicle sales rose to 22,960 units in May 2020 vs. only 141 units sold in April 2020.
market pulse

Recovery Still Intact

Although the unemployment rate rose, the quantum appears to have peak which bodes well for the general economy as businesses gradually re-opened. We think that upsides are still in prevalent and any weakness will be cushioned by gains in glove heavyweights amid the on-going shortages of masks, gowns, face shields and gloves in the US with the rising number of new cases of Covid-19.

Hartalega Holdings Berhad – 14th July 2020

Demand-supply imbalance is expected to remain in place as the capacity expansion of all glove players coupled with the new entrants of glove players in the pipeline would not be able to match up to the upward trajectory demand stemmed from the rising new cases of Covid-19.

Investors will digest the barrage of corporate earnings releases from US, of which analysts are predicting -44.6% YoY in earnings contraction in 2QFY20. Back home, rotational play will continue amongst the lower liners, while the extended rise on glove heavyweight shares will continue to anchor the performance on the local bourse.

Record high turnover for Malaysia warrants market

Last week, the Malaysia warrants market saw the highest weekly turnover in 2020 with RM1.28bil traded.

It was another solid performance on the local bourse, largely buoyed by the unprecedented rise in glove heavyweights. Although we reckon that the extended gains to continue, the first parliamentary sitting since the Movement Control Order (MCO) took place may see investors staying on the side-lines; awaiting for further political developments. Nevertheless, the revision of market circuit breaker rules may provide a boost for further strides.
market pulse

Hitting Resistance Again

The FBM KLCI has now turned slightly cautious after the recent streak of gains as penny counters took the lead. Given the lack of fresh leads, we see the consolidation to take place as investors continue to monitor on the developments of economic recovery. At the same time, the renewed volatility on Wall Street may also limit any potential gains.
market pulse

Buying Momentum Resumes

The prevailing low interest rate environment enticed investors’ portfolio allocation to other asset classes, including the equities market in search for higher yields. We think that the positive momentum as foreign funds net buying hit the highest level since 17th January 2020, coupled with the surge in trading activities will enable the Malaysian stockmarket to trend higher.

Pullback in Store

We think that the pre-emptive move by Bank Negara may provide some support to the local market as investors shift their portfolio to alternative investments in search for higher yields. For now, a consolidation could be due following the recent stretch of rally that allows investors to digest the recent gains, while the renewed volatility on Wall Street may permeates to stocks on Bursa Malaysia.

The Malaysia warrants market caught fire last week as the average daily turnover jumped to RM180.7mil, the highest level since Apr 2019. This surge in trading activities despite a shorter trading week in Malaysia in conjunction with the Hari Raya holidays can be attributed to the increase in demand for warrants over Malaysia stocks which made up 84.2% of the total value traded. This also marks the third consecutive week of the Malaysia stocks warrants’ domination of the local warrants market.
