In Thursday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take another look at tech titan Apple ahead of its earnings report after the close.
The S&P 500 is treading water Thursday after another round of disappointing earnings from the FAANG names.
Shares of Facebook parent company Meta Platforms Inc. (Nasdaq: META) plunged more than 24% after revenue dipped for the second consecutive quarter… Meanwhile, sales growth continued to slow for Google parent Alphabet Inc (Nasdaq: GOOG).
This week’s string of disappointments from the top tech names have emboldened bearish sentiment across the sector, as Amazon is set to report along with Apple after the bell Thursday.
An hour into the open, my scanners picked up a HUGE downside bet in Apple when an institutional trader swept up about 1,400 contracts of the Nov. 11 expiration, $152.50 strike puts for over $1.2 million in premium!
Of course, Apple isn’t the only tech stock lighting up Thursday’s tape…
- Peabody Energy Inc. (NYSE: BTU): Nov. 18, $24 CALL.
- Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL): Nov. 11, $152 PUT.
- Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN): Oct. 28, $110 PUT.
