Blitz Daily: How the Bears Are Looking to Cash in on Memory Chip Glut

by | Aug 12, 2021 | Uncategorized

In Thursday’s Blitz Daily, we’ll take a look at semiconductor company Micron Technology after a Thursday stock downgrade sent shares plummeting.

Chipmaker Micron Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MU) shares took a turn for the worse on the heels of the downgrade from financial services firm Morgan Stanley. Analysts also dropped Micron’s price target from $105 to $75.

Micron shares tumbled more than 8% on the news and had the bears on Wall Street frothing at the mouth. In the options chain, traders took big bets to the downside through August and September. In particular, nearly 8,000 contracts traded in the Aug. 20 $68 strike put.

And there’s more where that came from. I have two more must-see options plays including a $4.6 million bet in a familiar gaming name that we took aim at this morning in my Daily Profits War Room

  • Micron Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MU): Aug. 20 $69 PUT.

  • International Game Technology PLC (NYSE: IGT): Sep. 17 $22 CALL.

  • Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI): Jan. 21, 2022 $90 CALL.

Check out my short video and I’ll break down Micron 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.
