H- Shares Lined Up For A Shanghai Listing

As mentioned before, those H-shares going for a Shanghai listing have a much better upside than the rest of the H-shares. However, the corrective phase in China markets over the last 2 months have caused some of them to be postponed till they get better sentiment.

Things appear to be moving again, but with some reshuffling and changes. A month ago, it was supposed to be CNOOC followed by Zijin Mining. Now, there appears to be a new frontrunner in China Mobile - possibly the best China stock to own with or without the A-share listing.

China Mobile, whose US$341 billion market value makes it the largest telephone carrier, and CNOOC Ltd, China's third-biggest oil company. China Mobile is "actively" seeking a listing on the mainland, Chairman Wang Jianzhou said recently. Hence just these two could carry and create a sentiment change, especially China Mobile.

For better choice of exposure, one should go and buy in HKSE for the covered warrants. Below are some commentary on the covereds on these 3 companies:

1) China Mobile: China Mobile- c5, c6 & c7 are fair valued and would represent good exposure into June/July, can hold for a few months. For more speculative purposes, the China Mobile-c4 looks interesting with low single digit premium and will only expire in March 28.

2) CNOOC - Just switch to CNOOC-c2.

3) Zijin - Even though I knew the stock was lined up for a Shanghai listing, the covered warrant Zijin-c1 NEVER reached even decent value, it was always traded hugely expensive, very expensive or quite expensive. Even today its premium is still above 25% with a poor gearing. Wait for a Zijin-c2 or c3.

Would just like your opinion on why an A-share listing will pull up the h-share listing.

Logically to me it should not make a difference, i can't see any direct changes impacting the h-share owners. To me it seems no different than a bonus issue, in fact even less so.

Would appreciate your more informed view.

pls search for "H-shares" and "A-shares listings" in my blog, you will find the respective postings to answer yr queries. Readers of this blog made a lot of money from Petrochina experience.

Hello Salvatore, chmobil-c6 should be out of your recommendationdue to very high premium and also high conversion ratio. Agreed with you on fact chmobil-c6 is much higher prem than Zijin.
Salvatore_Dali said…

i know china mobile-c6 has a slightly higher pm than zijin even ... but at least it has a decent gearing plus it looks like china mobile will be first in the queue for shanghai, and it looks like zijin will be following after cnooc, so the time to expiry does not do zijin-c1 any good.

i still remember the when zijin was listed, it was trading with a 50% premium for few weeks, people rather buy cheap warrants (in monetary terms) with high premium low gearing and forego those with close to 0 premium and ok gearing.

The market now swings more than the steepest rollercoaster in the world..

what is gonna happen to the HK market with the release of weak US employment data?
Hain Kuon said…
I agree with chan, taking petrochina-4 and C5 as example. Ppl is still chasing petrochina-C5 with premium of 30% just because it is relatively cheap..unbelievable. I read Dali's article last weekend mentioning about capping the CW and i couldn't agree more.

I guess it's China Coal's turn for Shanghai IPO right after Zijin Mining... Reuters has reported about this an hour ago..

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.

My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.

I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.

My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

PUC - An Assessment

PUC has tried to reinvent itself following the untimely passing of its founder last year. His younger brother, who was highly successful in his own right, was running Pictureworks in a number of countries in Asia.

The Shares Price Rise & Possible Catalysts

Share price has broken its all time high comfortably. The rise has been steady and not at all volatile, accompanied by steady volume, which would indicate longer term investors and some funds already accumulating nd not selling back to the market.

Potential Catalyst #1

The just launched Presto app. Tried it and went to the briefing. Its a game changer for PUC for sure. They have already indicated that the e-wallet will be launched only in 1Q2018. Now what is Presto, why Presto. Its very much like Lazada or eBay or Alibaba. Lazada is a platform for retailers to sell, full stop. eBay is more for the personal one man operations. Alibaba is more for wholesalers and distributors.

Presto links retailers/f&b/services originators with en…

How Long Will The Bull Lasts For Malaysia

Are we in a bull run? Of course we are. Not to labour the point but I highlighted the start of the bull run back in January this year... and got a lot of naysayers but never mind:

p/s: needless to say, this is Jing Tian ... beautiful face and a certain kind of freshness in her looks and acting career thus far

I would like to extend my prediction that the bull run for Bursa stocks should continue to run well till the end of the year. What we are seeing for the past 3 weeks was a general lull where volume suddenly shrunk but the general trend is still intact. My reasons for saying so:

a) the overall equity markets globally will be supported by a benign recovery complemented by a timid approach to raising rates by most central banks

b) thanks to a drastic bear run for most commodities, and to a lesser extent some oil & gas players, the undertone for "cost of materials" have been weak and has pr…
