Blitz Daily: The Bulls Return to Match Group After Ugly Earnings Breakup

by | Aug 23, 2021 | Uncategorized

In Monday’s Blitz Daily, we’ll take a look at dating app conglomerate Match Group as shares found support amid a three-week, post-earnings slide.

If you’ve ever seen a big ad for online dating,odds are the site belongs to Match Group. It’s the company behind apps and sites Tinder, Match.com, OkCupid, PlentyOfFish and a load of others. 

Shares traded near record highs before its Aug. 3 report, but dropped more than 20% after earnings and forward guidance failed to meet expectations. 

The bulls decided enough was enough and launched a buy program. And just like magic, the stock price bottomed around the $130 level for the fourth time in the past six months. Buyers targeted the weekly Aug. 27 expiration $138 strike call, trading nearly 2,000 contracts in total.

And that wasn’t the only explosive options action we saw Monday, so take a look at these trades… 

Today’s Top Orders:

  • Match Group Inc. (Nasdaq: MTCH): Aug. 27 $138 CALL.

  • Las Vegas Sands Corp. (NYSE: LVS): Jan. 20, 2022 $35 CALL.

  • Ammo Inc. (POWW): Sept. 17 $7.50 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.
