From $1.7M to $30 MILLION — How We Spotted the Trade of the Year (Decade?!)

by | Feb 1, 2024

I’ll be LIVE at 2 p.m. ET on Monday to talk about THE hottest sector in all of trading — chip stocks — and I’m giving the top 9 to trade in February!

You probably already know that chip stocks have been on fire the past few months. So much so that I’ve covered what may be the trade of the decade a couple of times already in this newsletter.

But this is a trade that just keeps on giving — I mean people can’t get enough of this stock and it keeps hitting the News Flow Scanner day after day after day!

I’m talking of course about Super Micro Computers (SMCI).

The original trade — which I gave away for free in my Telegram channel! — only dates back about three weeks. And last time I checked, he or she was up about 2,275%, raking in over $28 MILLION 🤯


At the time the order was placed, this baby was going for around $8.15 a contract (so $815). Today, it went over $192.05 per contract!

And you know how I found this order?

My News Flow Scanner — go here for more information on how to spot some of the most unusual options activity in the market!

While I don’t expect another trade to top this one any time soon — it’s the trade of the year and maybe the decade for a reason — but you never know what could hit next!

Check out the video up top and I’ll cover all the juicy details. Now, speaking of what could hit next…

We also have some major companies reporting earnings today after the close including Apple, Amazon and Facebook parent company Meta.

And while we had seen SEVEN more bullish orders in SMCI as of 1:30 p.m. ET, we’ve only gotten two earnings plays so far today in the big three names I just mentioned, both in META in the Feb. 9 expiration, $395 strike puts, and the June monthly expiration $460 calls with the stock trading around $395.

Keep in mind that puts are often downside protection in case a long stock position tanks on earnings. But these are in the money…

I also included an AMZN order that hit late Wednesday that could very much be in play with shares trading around $157.40.

Just be sure and respect that risk!

P.S. Did You Catch Graham’s Apple Earnings Brief?

Apple earnings are happening today after the market closes.

My buddy Graham asked his students if they wanted to do a LIVE class focused on Apple’s announcement, and the response was super positive.


So, earlier today, he hosted an “emergency” session…

Here’s how it went:

  • Provided outlook on AAPL and strategy for earnings.
  • Explained the “wrap order” he used to target 100%, even on a small move in Apple.
  • Announced a bonus class to trade right before the actual announcement.

So… if you missed it, you can catch the replay right here!

Graham really may have cracked the code on the best way to trade Apple earnings.

In fact, his method works especially well for Thursday announcements.

BEST Order Of The Day: SMCI


Thanks to my News Flow Scanner, we found another big mover… ahead of time!

That’s the point, right? To get in these calls or puts before they blast off to the moon or fall off a cliff…

Well, the only way to do that is with my News Flow Scanner!

With SMCI up about 5.1% to around $556.50 a share in early trading Thursday, the order above hit in the weekly $550 calls. At the time, it was trading for around $14.00 a contract.

By 1:35 p.m. on the East Coast and with SMCI now up to about $575.50 a share, it was trading for about $28.60 a contract — that’s a 104%* move higher for those scoring at home.

And as of 2 p.m. ET, we had already seen seven bullish (and one bad bearish) orders for SMCI, a ticker that just won’t stop peppering the scanner…
