Blitz Daily: Bearish Options Traders Brace for Tech Earnings Slide

by | Feb 1, 2022 | Crypto

In Tuesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at tech king Apple as the bears look for protection against this week’s tech earnings.

After two happy days with markets in the green, there’s a lot of bearish options action hitting the Blitz Tracker on Tuesday — especially in tech names. And with so much on the line for the market with Google parent company Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL) set to report after the bell Tuesday, traders don’t want to be wiped out in the event of another downside move.

One bet that caught my attention saw traders take an oversized position in one of last week’s market heroes, Apple. One big bear dropped over $900,000 in premium on the March 11 $170 strike puts, with more than 7,500 contracts traded on the day!

Of course, that’s not the only flow hitting the scanner Tuesday… I’ve got more bearish action waiting below…

  • Honeywell International Inc. (Nasdaq: HON): Feb 4 $200 PUT. 
  • Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: APPL): March 11 $170 PUT. 
  • LivePerson Inc. (Nasdaq: LPSN): March 18 $30 PUT. 
  • Farfetch Ltd. (NYSE: FTCH): April 14 $30 CALL.

Check out my short video and I’ll break down the day’s most unusual options order flow in no time flat!

Blitz Daily With Lance Ippolitto

At Weekly Blitz Alerts, we like to print money, baby! I know, I know, you’re probably thinking, “Lance, how do we do that? Print money? Come on…”  

But in all seriousness, we follow the big fish and what they’re buying. And we do that with my proprietary Blitz Tracker, which alerts me to big, institutional options order flow throughout the day. Then we get in on these plays and follow the “smart money.”  

By doing this, we cash in whether the broader market is going up, down or sideways. 

The Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito is where I go over a handful of options trades that hit my Blitz Tracker each day, Monday through Thursday. I will break down the trade with the sexiest order flow and tell you exactly what I think can happen with that stock by the next day’s opening bell.

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.
