Features of Warrant

Compared with stocks, warrants have more attributes which include:

    • Issuer: A warrant can be issued by a listed company (i.e. subscription warrant) or a third party such as a financial institution (i.e. derivative warrant).
    • Underlying asset: It can be a single stock, a basket of stocks, an index, a currency, a commodity, a futures contract (e.g. oil futures) etc.
    • Types of embedded rights: Don't mix up a call warrant with a put warrant. A call warrant gives you the right to buy whereas a put warrant gives you the right to sell the underlying asset.
    • Exercise price: The price at which you buy or sell the underlying asset in exercising a warrant.
    • Conversion ratio: This refers to the number of units of the underlying asset exchanged when exercising a unit of a warrant. Normally, in Hong Kong a derivative warrant on shares has the ratio of 1 (i.e.one warrant for one share) or 10 (i.e.10 warrants for one share)
    • Expiry date: The date on which a warrant will expire and become worthless if the warrant is not exercised.
    • Exercise style: With an American warrant, you can exercise to buy/sell the underlying asset on or before the expiry date. Whereas a European warrant allows exercise on the expiry date only.
    • Settlement: A warrant can be settled by cash or physical delivery upon exercise. In Hong Kong, warrant is usually settled by cash.

Some warrants have more sophisticated features and are generally referred to as exotic warrants.

Features of Callable Bull/Bear Contracts(CBBC)

CBBC is a derivative contract that you can buy and sell. Its value is determined by the performance of an asset it is linked to.The bull/bear part describes two different products that can also be called a callable bull contract and a callable bear contract. A HSI callable bull contract rises in value if the index rises and a HSI callable bear contract rises in value if it falls.CBBCs also have got a number of other important features that need to be understood.

These are: spot price, finance cost, residual value, expiry date and entitlement ratio. Spot price is what it actually costs to buy or sell the CBBC. Finance cost is a charge that gets added to the CBBC's spot price. It covers the issuer's costs for creating the CBBC and varies from time to time.Residual value is what the CBBC is worth after it is called. If the call price is 11,000 and the HSI falls to 11,000, the CBBC will be called. But if the strike price is 10,000, the CBBC may have some residual value. Expiry date is the end of the life of the CBBC, and at that time the residual value is calculated by reference to the strike price.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should be noted when choosing warrants/CBBCs?

Strike price, implied volatility*, conversion ratio and maturity date are all basic factors that affect derivatives.

*For the trend of implied volatility, please refer to the issuer’s website or  Hong Kong Stock Exchange website

When will the CBBC be forcibly called back?

5 to 10 working days.

When a CBBC is forcibly called back, how should I calculate its residual value?

There will be an observation period during the trading session and the next trading session.
Bull contract: The settlement price is the lowest of the relevant assets during the observation period. If the strike price is triggered, the bull contract has no residual value.
Bear contract: The settlement price is the highest level of the relevant asset during the observation period. If the strike price is triggered, the bear contract has no residual value.

Does the purchase of warrants/CBBC mean the purchase of underlying shareholders’ equity?

No, owning derivative product does not mean owning its shareholders' equity, because the products have been bought and sold in consideration of the company’s visible behavior, such as dividends. Ex-dividend date is not going to affect the price of warrant/CBBC.
