Blitz Daily: Institutional Buyers Take a Shot at Pfizer

by | Jul 28, 2021 | Uncategorized

In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we’ll take a look at pharmaceutical company Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE) after the company’s earning beat launched a barrage of bullish bets in the options chain. 

PFE released second-quarter earnings before the bell Wednesday, which revealed  that the drug maker topped consensus estimates and raised its full-year guidance by 10%. This news, along with a new order for another 200 million doses of its COVID-19 vaccines, was enough to send traders into a buying frenzy. PFE shares jumped more than 3.5% on the day, hitting a new 52-week high. So institutional traders are climbing over themselves to buy the options. In particular, the big boys bought a block of contracts in the Dec. 17 $42 CALLS.

On top of this action, The Blitz Tracker spotted the whales on Wall Street making big moves on a few other positions…

  • Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE): Dec. 17 $42 CALL.

  • Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (Nasdaq: AMD): Sep. 17 $95 CALL.

  • Canopy Growth Corp. (Nasdaq: CGC): Jan. 21, 2022 $22.50 CALL.

  • Pinduoduo Inc. (Nasdaq: PDD): Aug. 20 $103 CALL

Check out my short video and I’ll break down Pfizer’s options order flow, along with all of today’s earnings plays in no time flat…

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.
