Is Delta Ready for Takeoff With Earnings Next Week?

by | Apr 4, 2024

>>>I just issued a brand-new Tesla trade alert at 2 p.m. ET TODAY — go here!<<<

We didn’t see much in the way of earnings flow for companies reporting this week, but we did catch some interesting flow in a name reporting next week…

First and foremost, let’s take a look at a monster order to the tune of $631K in Delta (DAL) calls. 

Delta has had a pretty good 2024 so far, up about 20% year to date with a nice 3% bounce heading into this afternoon. The company reports earnings next Wednesday, April 10, before the open. DAL isn’t one of those stocks we see every day on the News Flow Scanner, but we do see it probably a couple of times a month, but rarely that much premium. 

Shares are trading in the $47-$48 range Thursday, and market makers are expecting a move of $6.50 higher or lower by the June monthly expiration, which is in range of the big order this bull bought: the June monthly expiration, $52.50 strike calls. 

This is a longer-dated play, so keep that in mind ahead of earnings. If wrong, it will at least give some time to recover, and the option is cheap, trading around $1.35 a contract as of 1:20 p.m. ET. 

Could be worth a look if this fits a trader’s risk profile, or maybe even some shorter dated, in-the-money calls. Just remember that short-dated calls (like weeklies) can and will go to $0 fast if wrong!

We also saw some Generac (GNRC) a trader dropped darn near a million bucks on that I was too slow to get in on… 

But I have my eye on them in case we see a dip! And finally, Micron (MU) saw three call buys after dipping 1.3% on the open — if a chip stock dips in this market, traders are all over them!

Thursday’s Top Order Flow: 

  • DAL Jun24 Strike: 52.5 Calls premium: $630,696 ASK BULLISH
    Trade Date: April 4, 2024 Trade Time: 11:48 am
  • GNRC May24 Strike: 145 Calls premium: $991,400 ABOVE ASK BULLISH
    Trade Date: April 4, 2024 Trade Time: 11:05 am
  • MU May24 3rd Strike: 131 Calls premium: $164,160 ASK BULLISH
    Trade Date: April 4, 2024 Trade Time: 12:52 pm

Note: If no date is listed after the month, it’s the monthly expiration (third Friday).

P.S. Trade Tesla on This Day of Each Week…

Navigating the stock market can feel like stepping into a world of peculiarities.

After all, it’s filled with a wide variety of gurus who come with their own quirky ways of trading. 

And the rather bizarre secret I’m about to share doesn’t deviate from that quirkiness… 

When traders enter the weird and wonderful world of trading Tesla, they get to focus on trading one extraordinary stock instead of dealing with the hassles of multiple tickers. 

Oddly enough, the pursuit has been quite profitable, as it was not uncommon for the method to produce a long string of winners. 

Just like it has this year…there hasn’t been one losing trade!

Obviously, I cannot promise future profits or against losses… nothing is guaranteed in the stock market.

But I’m willing to share the simplicity of trading Tesla’s Thursday afternoon moves during my presentation…
