Fast Food Buyout Rumor Has Traders Booking Super-Sized Options Plays

by | May 26, 2022 | Options

In Thursday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at fast food retailer Wendy’s as shares continue to breakout.

Markets are ripping higher Thursday with some fantastic moves in most stocks… 

Shares of Albertsons are up around 3.5% since our feature from Tuesday’s Blitz Daily. Those June 17 expiration, $28 strike calls were up over $3 last I checked — if you took the trade, drop me a line at lance@newmoneycrew.com and let me know how you did!

Wendy’s is another stock that’s been tearing up the charts over the past two days after Trian Fund management — the company’s largest shareholder — announced it is on the hunt for a potential acquisition.

The news sparked a 15%, two-day rally with bullish traders piling into shares and call options

Thursday saw institutional traders order up the June 17, $18 calls — grabbing around 1,300 contracts for $150,000 in premium!

And that wasn’t the only name seeing unusually heavy options buying during Thursday’s session. I have three more hot trades waiting below…

    • Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (NYSE: BABA): May 27, $91 CALL. 
    • The Wendy’s Co. (Nasdaq: WEN): June 17, $18 CALL.
    • Chevron Corp. (NYSE: CVX): May 27, $91 CALL.
    • ChargePoint Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CHPT): June 3, $12 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. Over the past few years, the knowledge of the average retail trader has grown dramatically…

Hungry for any edge they can get, many have begun to rely on an obscure Wall Street strategy.

It once was reserved for only the elite…

But now, nearly ANY trader can do it — even from their cell phone!

Times like these are when your trading skills are put to the test.

The world’s greatest traders thrive in this kind of environment…

So it’s time to figure it out.

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!

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.
