In Thursday’s Blitz Daily, we take a look at social media leviathan Meta Platforms, formerly known as Facebook, as money flows out of tech in a flight to safety.
Easy come, easy go. Thursday saw the tech-heavy Nasdaq take a 2-plus percent dive, giving back all of its gains from Wednesday’s post-Federal Reserve decision rally. With money flowing out of tech and into safety (including The Kraft Heinz Company (Nasdaq: KHC) that Weekly Blitz Alerts traded for our second win in less than 24 hours this week — but more on that later!) social media network Meta Platforms saw shares fall as much as 2.22% from its Dec. 15 closing price at the time this was written.
The drop was enough to attract the attention of dip-buyers looking for a quick turnaround ahead of the upcoming holiday-shortened week. Traders took aim on the Dec. 23 $350 strike calls, trading more than 27,000 contracts — nearly seven times the open interest!
And if you hit the like button on that trade, I have two more top options plays traders also need to keep their eyes on below…
- AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc. (NYSE: AMC): Jan. 7, 2022, $24 PUT.
- Meta Platforms Inc. (Nasdaq: FB): Dec. 23 $350 CALL.
- Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F): Dec. 17 $9.50 CALL.
