Blitz Daily: Dip Buyers Bet $1M on Sinking Apparel Stocks

by | Jan 10, 2022 | Crypto

In Monday’s Blitz Daily, we take a look at shoemaker Skechers as apparel names across the industry sell off on a string of negative headlines.

January is historically a rough month for retail as sales fall off after the holiday shopping season.

So when bearish news hits in the gap between Christmas and earnings season, it can sink stocks in a hurry. And Monday, they were hit with a double whammy.

First, HSBC hit retail giant Nike Inc. (NYSE: NKE) with a stock downgrade, citing weakening sales in China. If that weren’t enough, powerhouse women’s athleticwear firm Lululemon Athletica Inc. (Nasdaq: LULU) announced it expects earnings near the low end of its guidance after the omicron variant outbreak hurt operations in Q4 2021.

That one-two punch had apparel stocks on the ropes with blood in the street’s during Monday’s session, including footwear name Skechers…

But where there’s blood, there’s blood-buying… and the bulls aren’t pulling their punches!

Traders took a big swing at the SKX Feb. 18 $45 strike calls for nearly $1 million in premium!

And that wasn’t the only tape bomb hitting the scanners Monday… 

    • Under Armour Inc. (NYSE: UA): Jan. 21 $17 CALL. 
    • Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (Nasdaq: AMD): Jan. 14 $130 CALL. 
    • Skechers USA Inc. (NYSE: SKX): Feb. 18 $45 CALL.

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.
