Big Money Loads Up on BIG-Money NFLX Calls

by | Feb 27, 2024

On the heels of Monday’s newsletter where we discussed Marathon Digital Holdings (MARA), BANG — we saw a major pop Tuesday morning in the two orders covered…

Thursday’s newsletter hit your inbox around 3 p.m. ET, and it was posted it in my Telegram channel at 3:30 p.m., when the $29 and $32 calls above were both trading for $2.18, coincidentally.

Tuesday morning, they topped out at $4.28 and $3.88, respectively…

The crypto miners sold off sharply after the open, so you have to move fast to lock in those moves on the pop, especially in short-dated options!

But what about what’s hitting the ol’ News Flow Scanner today? 

Well, Netflix (NFLX) is seeing aggressive buys in the weekly and April monthly expiration, $600 and $610 strike calls, respectively. 

I’m itching to buy these but there’s only one problem…

NFLX options are like the mansion for sale on the water — I want to buy, I just can’t afford it!

The weekly option is going for about $7.50 at the moment this is being written. Not too crazy, but if you’re wrong, that $7.50 could be wiped out in no time since the expiration is just a couple of days away. 

The April monthlies cost about $3K per contract, so these babies are out of my typical price range. 

While the profit potential could be massive, with shares of Netflix trading right at $600 right now, I will respect the risk and stick with the girl I brought to the dance…

Short-dated, cheap options!

Earnings flow was fairly slow through Tuesday afternoon, but a short order hit in MARA, and a short order hit in CAVA on Monday that I included. 

Remember, shorts are often insurance bets against long stock positions in case they tank on earnings.
