Blitz Daily: Bears Pounce After DraftKings’ Potential Merger Mishap

by | Aug 11, 2021 | Uncategorized

In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily, we’ll take a look at online gambling company DraftKings after reports of an investigation into its recent acquisition.

The bears were out in full force in the DraftKings Inc. (Nasdaq: DKNG) options chain on Wednesday. Several news outlets are reporting Golden Nugget Online Gaming Inc. (Nasdaq: GNOG) may have breached its fiduciary obligations in the $1.5 billion buyout. 

That was enough blood in the water to attract a wave of bearish activity after the stock climbed more than 10.5% in the week leading up to the announcement. In particular, traders jumped on the October monthly $50 strike puts, trading nearly 6,500 contracts in the Wednesday session.

And while the bears were picking over DraftKings, the bulls were having a field day with retail stocks. See for yourself…

  • DraftKings Inc. (DKNG): Oct. 15 $50 PUT.

  • Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT): Aug. 13 $152.50 CALL.

  • The Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD): Aug. 13 $340 CALL.

  • Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc. (NYSE: SPCE): Aug. 20 $27 PUT.

Check out my short video and I’ll break down DraftKings order flow, along with all of today’s options plays in a flash…

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.
