In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we look at social media giant Meta Platforms as shares bounce off 52-week lows after a 30% bloodletting since Feb. 2.
What goes down eventually goes back up again — or at least that’s what some traders are thinking Wednesday as they pile into Meta stock options.
It’s been a gut-wrenching few days for the recently rebranded parent company of Facebook after a disastrous Feb. 3 earnings report. Revenue came in under analyst expectations and shareholders abandoned ship, sinking the once-revered growth stock by 26%. All told, the $119 billion loss is the largest single-day drop in stock market history.
Adding insult to injury, shares continued to sell off across the next three sessions… But thankfully, the slide came to an end Wednesday. Shares of the beleaguered tech firm bounced more than 5% as traders looked to get their piece of one of the biggest dips of all-time.
In the options chain, the Blitz Tracker spotted one buyer sweeping up more than 26,700 contracts of the Feb. 11 $235 strike calls for more than $120,000 in premium!
But if you’re not ready to call the bottom for Meta, don’t worry. I have two more massive options trades hitting the tape Wednesday…
- PulteGroup Inc. (NYSE: PHM): March 18 $55 CALL.
- Meta Platforms Inc. (Nasdaq: FB): Feb. 11 $235 CALL.
- Nvidia Corp. (Nasdaq: NVDA): Feb.11 $270 CALL.

P.S. Ever wonder why Wall Street always seems to be one step ahead of the average Joe trader?
It’s because the big firms have a ton of top-secret trading strategies that give them an edge over everyone else!
And by the time Joe trader can pull up his accounts, the stock has made its move and is already fading…
Now I’m ready to show everyone exactly why this happens and how I use that pullback to my advantage!
