Market Movers

United States

  • Shares of crypto-related stocks rose on Monday as Bitcoin prices rose over $50,000 and ethereum jumped to over $3,300. The rise in crypto prices pushed stocks such as Marathon Digital (MARA US) and Riot Blockchain (RIOT US) sharply higher, closing at 4.25% and 4.08% respectively. PayPal also announced that it will allow U.K. users to buy, sell, and hold Bitcoin, a first in international expansion of crypto for PayPal, joining Square in growing its Bitcoin services.
  • Virgin Galactic (SPCE US) stocks climbed 3.71% on Monday. There was no company specific news. However, it was announced that SPAC NextGen Acquisition II signed a definitive agreement to take Virgin Galactic’s sister company, Virgin Orbit, in a reverse merger IPO that will value the company at $3.2 billion.
  • Tesla (TSLA US) shares jumped 3.83% on Monday after Deutsche Bank reiterated its buy rating on the company, saying that Tesla’s AI Day last week set a ‘bold vision’, leaving analysts with ‘greater appreciation for Tesla’s efforts in AI’.
  • DiDi Global (DIDI US). Shares closed 3.35% higher on Monday. This comes despite Beijing’s probe into the company, where DiDi may be forced to hand over shares containing special rights to the government, and also asked to lower commissions taken from drivers, according to a report by the Financial Times. 
  • Automaker General Motors (GM US) saw its shares dip 1.27% lower after the company expanded the recall of its electric car Chevy Bolt on friday that will address an issue that increases the risk of battery fires. The company will include newer models, in a move that will cost them an additional $1 billion.


  • OIO Holdings Limited (OIO SP). Shares continued to surge since Friday and closed at an all-time high, even though there was no company specific news. The rise in share price could be in tandem with the rise in Bitcoin prices, as prices edged above US$50,000 yesterday. In addition, there was various positive news on Crypto yesterday, for example PayPal launching crypto buying and selling in the UK, as well as Bitcoin’s prices rising above $50,000 for the first time since May as the virtual currency continues to climb out of a months-long slump. Bitcoin’s peers also advanced: Ethereum was up more than 3%, while dogecoin rose nearly 2%. The crypto currency boom could have likely caused a spillover effect as investors are positive over OIO’s 100% acquired Moonstake, a staking platform.
  • Sembcorp Marine Limited (SMM SP). Shares rose by 3.9% yesterday after the shareholders of Sembcorp Marine approved the group’s proposed renounceable underwritten rights issue at the group’s extraordinary general meeting (EGM) held earlier on the same day. The rights issue will seek to raise gross proceeds of some S$1.5bn with an issue price of 8 Sing cents per rights share.  Read the full article here.
  • Nanofilm Technologies Limited (NANO SP). Shares rose by 3.8% yesterday, even though there was no company specific news. The company announced yesterday that Temasek had disposed of 450,000 shares by an investment fund managed by a subsidiary of SeaTown, resulting in Temasek’s deemed interest dropping from 6.04% to 5.98%. Despite the sale by Temasek’s subsidiary, Nanofilm’s aggressive shareback last week could have lent some confidence to shareholders. After the major sell-off last week when Nanofilm reported disappointing results and the resignation of the company’s COO, the company addressed market feedback on Wednesday, sharing some positive news, which could have boosted investors’ confidence in the company. Key things highlighted was that within the Advanced Materials Business Unit, 3C segment revenue grew 17% YoY and the Automotive segment grew 103% YoY, despite the severe global supply chain disruptions. 1H21 costs that were incurred for the new Shanghai Plant 2 and equipment qualification (~S$2.6mn) were largely capitalized under cost of sales, hence negatively impacting gross profit margin. Lastly, the departure of CEO Mr Lee, announced on 23 June 2021, was due to health reasons.  
  • Yangzijiang Shipbuilding (Holdings) Limited (YZJSGD SP). Shares rose by 3.5% yesterday, even though there was no company specific news. The rise in share price could be due to industry positive news, as Chinese officials are forecasting that the strong growth in shipbuilding orders experienced in the first half of 2021 will continue for the remainder of the year. In tandem with the industry news, China Shipbuilding Industry Company (601989 SS) listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, gained 2.03% yesterday.
  • Aztech Global Limited (AZTECH SP). Shares rose by 2.9% yesterday following the huge sell-off last week. Aztech’s shares dropped almost 12% last week to close at an all-time low. While Aztech reported a 126% YoY surge in net profit to S$29.4mn, it still fell short of street expectations. Aztech’s H1 results came in “slightly below” DBS’s expectations, weighed down by industry-wide component shortages. Shares continued to decline after DBS and CGS-CIMB analysts lowered their TP for Aztech Global as they remained cautious amid operational risks arising from component shortages. However, the company addressed questions from the investment community yesterday, which could have boosted investors’ confidence in the company. Key matters highlighted include: 1) customers are willing to absorb the additional cost of securing the necessary components for the production of their orders, hence minimally impacting the Group’s profit margins; 2) Aztech is working to establish its share buyback mandate via an EGM; 3) the company has minimised any disruption to their production output arising from the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in Malaysia by ramping up our production capacity in China to cover any shortfall in the Malaysia factory.

  • SGX (SGX SP). Shares declined by 4.4% yesterday after a slew of analyst downgrades. The downgrades came amid news that the Hong Kong Exchange (HKEX) will offer A share Index futures contracts from 18 October. While HKEX’s plans was widely anticipated, it will be negative for SGX. Volume of FTSE China A50 Index Future on SGX dropped by 27% in July compared to the prior year period. SGX’s A-share derivatives revenue contributes around 13% of its total income. With the recent street downgrades, there is only 1 BUY recommendation compared to 12 HOLD ratings and 3 SELLs, and a 12m TP of S$10.83.
