3 Energy Options Plays That Have the Bulls Charged Up

by | Mar 8, 2022

In Tuesday’s Blitz Daily with Lance Ippolito, we take a look at oil and gas company Southwestern Energy after shares rallied after its recent stock upgrade.

Regional natural gas producer Southwestern Energy earned an upgrade from analysts at Bank of America on the heels of its solid earnings report on Feb. 24, and a surging energy market.

Southwestern’s rating improved from “underperform” to “neutral,” and its price target leaped from $5 to $9 in the release.

The news helped pop the stock as high as 11% over Monday’s closing price and had options traders rushing in to capitalize on the bullish outlook! The Blitz Tracker spotted one trader grabbing around 3,300 of the June 17 $8 strike call option for more than $152,000 in premium!

Of course, Southwestern wasn’t the only energy company hitting the tape Tuesday… I have two more top options plays waiting inside…

  • Cameco Corp. (NYSE: CCJ): May 20 $24 CALL. 
  • Southwestern Energy Co. (NYSE: SWN): June 17 $8 CALL.
  • Transocean Ltd. (NYSE: RIG): Jan. 20, 2023 $5 CALL.
