Bulls Jump on Tech’s Dip Following Ugly Inflation Print

by | Jul 13, 2022 | Options

In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at cybersecurity company NortonLifeLock ahead of its earnings event.

It was another fantastic day of trading even in the face of a morning gap down from the hottest inflation print we’ve seen since 1981!

But the institutional buyers started to come in hot and heavy as tech caught a nice bid, helping markets rally back toward Tuesday’s closing levels.

Loads of tech and growth names were lighting up my scanners, including NortonLifeLock. The beaten-down cybersecurity stock has seen its shares plunge over 20% since mid-March, but the bulls came charging in to buy the dip early Wednesday.

Big money trades loaded up on over 720 contracts of the Aug. 19 $23 calls for around $100,000. 

On top of this being a rare stock to see big option flow, the calls also capture the company’s July  26 earnings event.

Of course that’s not the only name seeing unusual activity Wednesday…

    • NVIDIA Corp. (Nasdaq: NVDA): July 15, $147 CALL.
    • Tesla Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA): July 15, $720 CALL.
    • NortonLifeLock Inc. (Nasdaq: NLOK): Aug. 19, $23 CALL.

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.
