In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily, we take a look at pharma kingpin Pfizer as bulls targeted safety in the lead-up to the mid-afternoon Federal Reserve announcement.
We saw extremely light trading Wednesday morning as Wall Street waited to see how Chair Jerome Powell and the Federal Open Market Committee would act coming out of the December meeting.
As a result, traders who weren’t on the sidelines moved toward the low-beta names in biotech, including a big move into Pfizer, and the food and beverage markets.
Shares jumped as much as 4% on the day as the bulls piled in for shelter from the choppy markets. On the options side, one trader scooped up more than 1,250 contracts of the Jan. 21, 2022, $60 strike call options for about $190,000 in premium!
Of course, that’s not the only name hitting the tape Wednesday… I have four more top flow trades waiting below…
- Pfizer Inc. (NYSE: PFE): Jan. 21, 2022, $60 CALL.
- Eli Lilly and Co. (NYSE: LLY): Jan. 21, 2022, $300 CALL.
- BlackBerry Ltd. (NYSE: BB): Dec. 17 $9.50 CALL.
- Cerner Corp. (Nasdaq: CERN): Dec. 17 $82.50 CALL.
- The Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO): Dec. 17 $59 CALL.
