Blitz Daily: Biotech Bulls Blow Up the Tape Tuesday on the Heels of Pfizer Earnings

by | Nov 2, 2021 | Crypto

In Tuesday’s Blitz Daily, we take a look at Boston-based biotech firm Moderna as top vaccine-makers report earnings.

November isn’t all turkey and over-spiced lattes… It’s also when many of the big biotech firms drop their quarterly reports and schedule their investor days. Tuesday saw a monster earnings report from Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE), crushing estimates and year-over-year comparisons on the back of record-breaking revenues from its coronavirus vaccine.

The news sent the biotech bulls on a buying frenzy, lifting shares of almost every company across the industry as they charged up and down the options chains. 

One of Tuesday’s biggest targets was rival vaccine maker Moderna Inc., whose shares jumped over 3.5% following the report ahead of its Nov. 4 earnings event. 

In the stock’s biggest order flow of the day, one bullish trader backed up the truck and loaded up on 3,154 contracts of the Nov. 12 $445 strike options, paying more than $188,000 in premium! 

And there’s more where that came from. I have two more biotech trades that got a shot in the arm Tuesday…

  • Moderna Inc. (Nasdaq: MRNA): Nov. 12 $445 CALL.
  • Cardinal Health Inc. (NYSE: CAH): Dec. 17 $50 CALL.
  • Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. (NYSE: BMY): Nov. 19 $59 CALL.

Check out my short video and I’ll break down the day’s most unusual options order flow 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.
