Blitz Daily: No iPhone? No Problem! QCOM Projects Growth Without Apple

by | Nov 16, 2021 | Crypto

In Tuesday’s Blitz Daily, we take a look at chipmaker Qualcomm as the company hosts its annual investor day.

Who needs the iPhone? Not Qualcomm…

The world’s largest supplier of mobile phone chipsets told investors and the press it expects sales of its hardware to increase 12% by 2024, even as its business with Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) begins to taper off.

That vote of confidence was all the confirmation Wall Street needed to come rushing in. Share prices for the communications pioneer jumped as high as 10% over Monday’s close, sending call options on a quick trip to the moon!

Big buyers liked what they saw and picked up over 15,500 contracts of the Nov. 19 $185 strike calls Tuesday afternoon for more than $700,000 in premium! 

And that’s not the only big bet hitting the tape today. I have 5 more top options plays ready to answer the call…

  • Lucid Group Inc. (Nasdaq: LCID): Nov. 19 $50 CALL.
  • Canadian Solar Inc. (Nasdaq: CSIQ): Nov. 26 $40 CALL.
  • Peloton Interactive Inc. (PTON): Nov. 19 $54 CALL.
  • Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC): Dec. 3 $52.5 CALL.
  • Qualcomm Inc. (Nasdaq: QCOM): Nov. 19 $185 CALL.
  • Opendoor Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: OPEN): Dec. 17 $22 CALL.

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