WWE Calls Soar After Vince McMahon ‘Retires’

by | Jul 25, 2022 | Options

In Monday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at entertainment icon WWE as shares spike after its CEO stepped down.

It was a hot weekend and Monday started off even hotter despite that sluggish low-volume summer flow!

The Nasdaq kicked the week off with a nice 69-point gap down at the open, helping our Wiretap Alerts score its second hat trick of winning trades for July!

But that’s not what has me “stylin’ and profilin’” this Monday… Oh, you didn’t know? Well you you better call somebody because the big news this weekend came straight out of Stamford, Connecticut. 

That’s right… Vincent Kennedy McMahon announced his retirement as CEO of  World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. (NYSE: WWE) after more than four decades at the helm!

I was screaming from the mountain tops this past week all about the ultra-rare order flow we saw in the iconic sports entertainment stock, superkicking shares as much as 10.5% higher Monday!

The momentum helped Weekly Blitz Alerts land the elbow from the top rope and close out the second leg of a monster four-day trade for a scorching 200%* gain — curb-stomping the lifetime weighted average of 14% including all winners and losers, and the eight-day average holding period! 

Days like this are why we follow institutional order flow and why traders need to know what’s hitting the tape today…

    • Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F): Aug. 26, $12.5 PUT.
    • Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM): Aug. 5, $89 PUT.
    • Applied Materials Inc. (Nasdaq: AMAT): Sept. 16, $90 PUT.
    • Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT): Sept. 16., $285 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!

Blitz Daily With Lance Ippolitto

At Weekly Blitz Alerts, 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.

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.
