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.
