Blitz Daily: Shutdown Fears Push Wall Street Toward These 2 Vaccine Plays

by | Aug 9, 2021 | Uncategorized

In Monday’s Blitz Daily, we’ll take a look at biotech company Novavax as breakthrough COVID-19 cases continue to rise worldwide.

Vaccine developer Novavax Inc. (Nasdaq: NVAX) saw shares plummet after a string of management mishaps followed by a weak earnings report on Aug. 5, But the persistent uptick in delta variant cases has Wall Street traders diving deeper into their pandemic playbook. 

In turn, that has institutional traders aiming to leverage those headlines for some quick dip-buy profits using short-term options flow. Notably, buyers piled into the NVAX Aug. 13 $220 call, with more than 10,000 contracts trading hands…

The Blitz Tracker spotted two more options plays seeing serious love today including a second round of buying on a familiar name ahead of its Monday earnings call…

  • Novavax Inc. (Nasdaq: NVAX): Aug.13 $250 CALL.

  • Moderna Inc. (Nasdaq: MRNA): Aug. 13 $485 CALL.

  • Callaway Golf Company (NYSE: ELY): Aug. 20 $36 CALL.

Check out my short video and I’ll break down Novavax options order flow, along with all of today’s earnings plays in less than five minutes…

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.
