Blitz Daily: The Smart Money Is Still Buying This Beaten-Down Social Media Stock

by | Oct 19, 2021

In Tuesday’s Blitz Daily, we’re looking at beaten-down social media company Facebook as traders return to pick up even more calls on the stock.

Facebook has been in hot water lately, and its share price has suffered for it. First, there was the “60 Minutes” segment about the company’s failure to curb the spread of misinformation and hate speech circulating on its site.

And on Tuesday, news broke that Facebook agreed to pay over $14 million to settle worker discrimination claims. 

The stock has dropped well below both its 20- and 50-day moving averages, but it seems traders believe the worst is over… Because they came in to snap up over 36,000 contracts of the Oct. 22 $345 strike calls!

But if you’re tired of seeing Facebook in the news, don’t worry… I have seven other trades seeing unusual amounts of attention right now including some Southwest Airlines calls I was able to sneak into just before the bell during a special LIVE earnings trade room… 

    • Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL): Oct. 29 $152 CALL.
    • Southwest Airlines Co. (NYSE: LUV): Oct. 22 $50 CALL.
    • Marvell Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MRVL): March 18 2022 $80 CALL.
    • American Airlines Group Inc. (Nasdaq: AAL): May 20 2022 $19 PUT.
    • Baidu Inc. (Nasdaq: BIDU): Dec. 17 $33 CALL.
    • Alcoa Corporation (NYSE: AA): Nov. 11 $57 CALL.
    • DraftKings Inc. (Nasdaq: DKNG): Oct. 22 $51 CALL.
    • Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB): Oct. 22 $345 CALL.
