The rally in the share led to an even bigger rally for Parkson-CO & Parkson-CP.

Punters got carried away by the rally and chase Parkson-CO to a high of RM0.06. From the table below, you can see that Parkson-CO is out-of-the-money and is trading at a premium of 114%. Parkson-CP is trading at a more reasonable premium of 12%. Both CWs will expire on May 31- only 2 months away.

In view of the short period to maturity, you are advised not to take an overly bullish view of these two CWs. If you like to take a contrarian view on Parkson, the better approach is to get into the share.
