The Smart Money Is Betting BIG on This Mining Company

by | May 4, 2022 | Options

In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at big call-buying in uranium miner Cameco Corp. ahead of its earnings report before the opening bell on Thursday.

With the sanctions against Russia, countries will turn to nuclear companies to make up for the resulting energy shortages. This puts names like Cameco, the world’s second-largest uranium producer, in an advantageous position.

CCJ Monthly Chart

But a lot of commodity names have traded poorly the past few weeks, even the ones that reported solid earnings. 

And it appears that at least one big-money trader is looking to take advantage of the recent weakness, coming in to buy 2,000 contracts for the June 17, $24 calls, worth over $600,000 in option premium!

Of course, if Cameco isn’t the bright spot you’re looking for in these markets, I’m also seeing a flight to safety following the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike announcement on Wednesday…

    • Cameco Corp. (NYSE: CCJ): June 17, $24 CALL. 
    • Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO): May 6, $64 CALL. 
    • Colgate-Palmolive Co. (NYSE: CL): May 6, $78 CALL. 
    • Kraft Heinz Co. (Nasdaq: KHC): May 13, $44 CALL.
    • Macy’s Inc. (NYSE: M): May 6, $24 PUT. 
    • Lyft Inc. (Nasdaq: LYFT): May 13, $23 CALL.
    • Rivian Automotive Inc. (Nsadaq: RIVN): May 13 $30 PUT.

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.
