Bulls Drop BIG Tape Bomb on BAC Ahead of Earnings

by | Apr 7, 2022 | Options

In Thursday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at investment bank and financial services company Bank of America ahead of its upcoming earnings call. 

This beaten-down bank has seen better days… It’s down almost 19% from its Feb. 8 high of $49.38, trading for about $39.50 a share on Thursday.

The company is due to report earnings on April 18. And while analysts expect a year-over-year decline, the Blitz Tracker is seeing some big, bullish bets hit the tape ahead of the event!

The bulls came in Thursday to pick up about 3,300 of the June 17, $39 calls for more than $800,000 in premium.

Someone then came in and spent about $100,000 in premium for the April 29, $40 calls, for a total of almost $1 million in earnings bets!

And that wasn’t the only ticker hitting the scanner. I have two more top trades waiting below…

    • Cleveland-Cliffs Inc. (NYSE: CLF): May 20 $34 CALL.
    • Bank of America Corp. (NYSE: BAC): June 17 $39 CALL.
    • Uber Technologies Inc. (NYSE: UBER): April 14 $33 CALL.

This “Overnight Secret” has been shared with a group of traders who’ve been put in front of massive triple-digit gains like 109% on LCID, 254% on FSLY and a scorching 925% return on SNAP all overnight!*

And now I want to show you the regulatory loopholes that have allowed traders to realize these incredible results…

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.
