Give Me 2 Minutes, and I’ll Give You 6 Hot Options Trades

by | Jul 12, 2022 | Options

After a nasty reversal in the opening minutes of Tuesday’s trading, it’s been a sleepy day for stocks and options… But that doesn’t mean we want to get caught napping on the big orders hitting the tape! 

In Tuesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at basic materials company Freeport-McMoRan as options activity jumps ahead of its July 21 earnings event.

We’ve seen some large call buying in the copper names hit the tape since Monday’s pullback. 

The red metal has been hit hard by high inflation and strict COVID-19 lockdowns in China during the second quarter. Copper miners like Freeport have been cut in half since the end of March.  

Bullish traders were out in force buying the blood on Tuesday with institutional buyers snatching more than 800 contracts of the Aug. 19 expiration, $28 strike calls for about $130,000 in premium! 

Of course, that wasn’t the only name seeing outsized options activity. I have five more top trades hitting Tuesday’s tape waiting below… 

    • Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL): July 15, $147 PUT.
    • Teck Resources Ltd. (NYSE: TECK): Aug. 19, $26 CALL.
    • Freeport-McMoRan Inc. (NYSE: FCX): Aug. 19, $28 CALL.
    • Delta Air Lines Inc. (NYSE: DAL): July 22, $30 CALL.
    • ARK Innovation ETF (NYSEArca: ARKK):  Aug. 19, $45 CALL.
    • Blackstone Inc. (NYSE: BX):  July 15, $93 PUT.

Check out the short video, see me slam some calls, and I’ll break down the day’s most unusual options order flow in no time flat!

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.
