Bloodthirsty Bullish Traders Load up on Kraft-Heinz

by | Jun 1, 2022 | Options

In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at packaged food powerhouse Kraft Heinz after a spike in options activity.

Shares of the condiment king took a step back on Wednesday from a small three-day, 3.5% rally.

Food and beverage names like Kraft Heinz are often a flight to safety in uncertain markets; however, the stock has spent the past two weeks trying to find support after inflation fears drove a massive 16% sell-off between May 13 and May 26.

Bullish traders came out of the woodwork Wednesday to buy the blood in the low-beta name. We spotted buyers gobbling up the June 3 expiration, $39 strike calls by the bucket load. More than 85,000 contracts of those weekly options have traded on the day — more than six times KHC’s 30-day average volume on that strike alone!

And if you’re still hungry for more super sized options plays, I have two more of Wednesday’s top trades waiting below..

    • The Kraft Heinz Co. (Nasdaq: KHC): June 3, $39 CALL. 
    • Antero Resources Corp.(NYSE: AR): June 17, $42 CALL.
    • UiPath Inc. (NYSE: PATH): June 17, $20 PUT.

Check out my short video and I’ll break down the day’s most unusual options order flow in no time flat!

P.S. A story has been unfolding behind the scenes… One unlikely stock is set for a potential buyout.

If the rumors are true – traders need to be aware!

Luckily, I’ve been following the story along with the bevy of options activity on this stock leading up to this news…

And I want to share all the details with you — including TWO specific option calls to play this coming news!)

Get the Names.

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.

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.
