Investors Are Losing Their Appetite for This Fast Food Company

by | Apr 27, 2022 | Options

In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at the household name known for its Golden Arches, fast food corporation McDonald’s.

The company has increased its digital presence in recent years, a move that’s paid off and helped McDonald’s report record profits in 2021. 

McDonald’s set to report earnings before the market open on Thursday, April 28, which means investors will be watching to see if it’ll be able to keep the momentum going.

And it seems institutional traders might not have full confidence in McD’s ability to do so… 

Those of us in the War Room Wednesday morning watched as one big-money trader dropped 215,000 in premium on the April 29 $245 strike puts, with the stock trading around $250 a share as I write this…

If McD’s doesn’t whet your appetite, I have more earnings season action for you below…

    • McDonald’s Corp. (NYSE: MCD): April 29 $245 PUT. 
    • United States Steel Corp. (NYSE: X): July 15 $29 PUT.
    • Campbell Soup Co. (NYSE: CPB): May 6 $48 CALL.

Blitz Daily With Lance Ippolitto

At Weekly Blitz Alerts, we like to print money, baby! I know, I know, you’re probably thinking, “Lance, how do we do that? Print money? Come on…”  

But in all seriousness, we follow the big fish and what they’re buying. And we do that with my proprietary Blitz Tracker, which alerts me to big, institutional options order flow throughout the day. Then we get in on these plays and follow the “smart money.”  

By doing this, we cash in whether the broader market is going up, down or sideways. 

The Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito is where I go over a handful of options trades that hit my Blitz Tracker each day, Monday through Thursday. I will break down the trade with the sexiest order flow and tell you exactly what I think can happen with that stock by the next day’s opening bell.
