Wall Street Bets $3.5M on Mosaic as Food Supplies Tighten

by | May 17, 2022 | Options

In Tuesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at agricultural stock Mosaic — one of the top stocks of the year — after a jump in options activity.

The 2022 markets have been plagued with headwinds from supply chain disruptions and materials shortages in everything ranging from semiconductors and energy to baby formula… 

And now a heatwave in India is forcing another market adjustment after its government banned wheat exports over the weekend.

Tuesday saw shares of top fertilizer stock Mosaic jump as high as 5.5% from Monday’s closing price, sparking a buying frenzy in the options chain!

Institutional traders swept up more than 5,500 contracts of the Sept. 16 expiration, $70 strike calls for more than $3.5 million in premium!

And that wasn’t the only ag name hitting the tape Tuesday…

    • Rivian Automotive Inc. (Nasdaq: RIVN): May 20, $25 CALL. 
    • JD.com Inc. (Nasdaq: JD): May 20, $52.50 CALL. 
    • The Mosaic Co. (NYSE: MOS): Sept. 16, $70 CALL. 
    • CF Industries Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CF): Aug 19, $115 CALL. 

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

P.S. I’ll be up front — I need your help.

My team and I have been working on a brand-new trading indicator for the better part of a year… 

We’ve code-named this initiative Project X.

But before we roll it out as a full-blown trading strategy, we need to make sure the system is as rock solid as we believe it to be…

And I’m looking for around 100 traders interested in beta testing this new indicator over the next couple of months. 

For more details, I’m holding a live demonstration of Project X at 1 p.m. EDT on Thursday, May 19.

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. 

If you want in on these fast-moving options plays, with entry, exit and profit targets sent directly to you via text and email alerts, be sure to sign up for Weekly Blitz Alerts!  

In the meantime, you can follow me @LanceIppolito on Twitter, Instagram and our YouTube channel for more trading insights and tips. And as always, you can find me right here talking stocks and options trading — and printing money — on WealthPress.com!

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.
