Bullish Trader Lays Down $1.7M Bet on Oil Name as Selling Continues

by | Jun 13, 2022 | Options

In Monday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at oil name Suncor as energy stocks dip.

It was a sea of red with the S&P 500 plunging as much as 3.8% an hour into Monday’s open.

Not even red-hot energy names could buck the trend, with the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSEArca: XLE) losing around 3.5% on the day…

But one trader’s drawdown is another’s dip buy, and we spotted several institutional traders looking to take advantage of Monday’s pullback… including an outsized bet in oil producer Suncor Energy.

Bullish options traders loaded up on the Canadian company, dropping as much as 7.1% Monday, with one buyer grabbing around 9,500 contracts of the July 15 expiration, $40 strike calls for over $1.7 million in premium!

Of course, that wasn’t the only stock hitting the tape Monday. I have two more top trades waiting below…

    • Suncor Energy Inc. (NYSE: SU): July 15, $40 CALL. 
    • Kohl’s Corp. (NYSE: KSS): June 24, $44.50 CALL.
    • Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF): June 17, $18 CALL.

P.S. A Revolutionary New Way to Trade Never Before Seen by the Public

With all these intense market conditions, some mornings it’s hard to find the inspiration to get out of bed let alone trade…

But six months ago, WealthPress Senior Strategist Roger Scott chose to ignore all the noise, and he set out on a mission. 

He wanted to bring his readers something brand-new… Roger had a vision for an entirely new way to trade… 

One that doesn’t require any sort of technical indicators or fundamental analysis… And it has shocked him to his core.

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.
