The Bulls Are Buying This Retail Name Like It’s Going Out of Style

by | Apr 4, 2022 | Options

In Monday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at American clothing company Levi Strauss & Co. ahead of its earnings report after the close on Wednesday. 

Analysts expect earnings per share of $0.42 on revenue of $1.55 billion. 

The company gave a stronger-than-expected outlook in January, saying that price hikes weren’t affecting sales. 

And ever since the Federal Reserve hiked interest rates a few weeks ago, we’ve seen retail and apparel companies trading higher. 

On Friday, we saw a big purchase in the April 14, $19 strike calls for LEVI. 

And the buying continued on Monday as we saw even more options flow, this time for 500 contracts of the April 14, $20 strike calls!

And even though it’s a slow day, that’s not the only retail company hitting the scanner…

    • Levi Strauss & Co. (NYSE: LEVI): April 14 $20 CALL.
    • The Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS): April 8 $14 CALL.
    • Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM): April 8 $155 CALL.
    • AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T): June 17 $25 CALL,

P.S. Between the Russia-Ukraine war, rising interest rates, rampant inflation and skyrocketing gas prices…

We’ve seen the stock market whipsaw accounts day in and day out for months.

And there’s been no directional bias of late on Wall Street.

Sadly, we’re sure a lot of people have seen their gains from the past two years ripped away in a matter of weeks.

That’s why former hedge fund manager Jeff Zananiri is revealing his “Heaters” strategy to the public…

A friend of mine sent me this chart about three months ago. I should probably print it and keep it in my wallet next to a photo of my daughter. Given the sheer number of questions I’ve fielded lately, I’ll probably end up showing this chart more than her picture.
