Shopify Becomes the Markets’ Latest Stock Split Bloodbath

by | Jun 30, 2022 | Options

In Thursday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at online retail giant Shopify as shares struggle from its recent stock split.

We had a super busy Thursday with the bulls fighting for control after a BIG gap down at the open… and the tape has been printing nonstop! 

One name that can’t seem to stay off of my scanners is e-commerce powerhouse Shopify.  

The e-commerce powerhouse saw its shares plummet more than 15% from its June 24, $38.52 closing price in the run up to Wednesday’s 10:1 stock split… And things aren’t slowing down Thursday with shares falling another 3%. 

Both SHOP and Amazon — which completed its stock split on June 6 — were popular targets for bearish traders Thursday with one trader grabbing around 700 contracts of the SHOP July 15 expiration, $32 strike puts for over $160,000 in premium! 

Of course that’s just a taste of the unusual activity burning up Thursday’s tape… 

    • Shopify Inc. (NYSE: SHOP): July 15, $32 PUT. 
    • Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN): July 1, $106 PUT.
    • iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSEArca: IWM): Oct.21, $144 PUT.
    • General Mills Inc. (NYSE: GIS): Aug. 19, $70 PUT.
    • Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (Nasdaq: AMD): July 8, $77 CALL.

Check out my short video 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 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.
