Blitz Daily: Bulls Take a Bite Out of Apple After Microsoft Earnings Beat

by | Jan 26, 2022 | Crypto

In Wednesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at tech titan Apple as the company gears up to report its fourth-quarter earnings. 

We are deep in the heart of earnings season as the big boys atop of the S&P 500 are reporting. Wednesday saw a strong showing from Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) as its shares initially fell but then jumped as high as 6.5% on its earnings beat.

The news helped lift spirits across the sector, whetting bullish appetites as traders prepare for the market’s next earnings main course with Apple reporting Thursday after the bell.

Looking to keep the tech party going, institutional buyers piled into the options chain Wednesday, placing a $600,000 bet on the May 20 $185 strike call options as more than 37,000 contracts changed hands.

Of course, that’s not the only flow hitting the tape… I have three more top trades waiting below…

    • Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL): May 20 $185 CALL. 
    • Juniper Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: JNPR): Jan. 28 $32 CALL. 
    • Mattel Inc. (Nasdaq: MAT): Jan. 28 $22 CALL.
    • CarMax Inc. (NYSE: KMX): Apr. 15 $105 PUT.

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

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.
