1 Health Care and 2 Earnings Trades Seeing Bullish Options Flow

by | Aug 16, 2021 | Uncategorized

In Monday’s Blitz Daily, we’ll take a look at drug developer Novartis after it was on the receiving end of several positive news stories.

Monday saw the bulls take a run at drugmaker Novartis AG (NYSE: NVS), buying long-dated options in size! The company recently announced the launch of phase three trials of its spinal muscular atrophy drug, Zolgensma, in early August. 

The Swiss-based firm also reported promising developments with its Kymriah line of cancer therapeutics. 

That helped bring buyers back for a second dip into the options chain this month. In particular, one of the big dogs snapped up 6,657 contracts of the Jan. 21, 2022, $100 strike call.

We’re also seeing lots of interest in two of the biggest names in retail reporting earnings this week, along with some green energy tickers. See for yourself…

  • Novartis AG (NYSE: NVS): Jan. 21, 2022, $100 CALL.

  • Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT): Sept. 17 $260 CALL.

  • Plug Power Inc. (Nasdaq: PLUG): Aug. 20 $26 CALL.

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.
