This Dirty Dog Is Seeing Monster Flow

by | Feb 9, 2024

I’ll be live at 10 a.m. ET on Saturday, Feb. 10, to cover the top options flow I’ve spotted heading into next week — the scanner is on FIRE!

While the chip stock frenzy continues — SMCI is the trade that keeps on giving! — there’s another tech company seeing bullish flow heading into the weekend…

The big, dirty dog, Datadog (DDOG), which reports earnings before the open Tuesday. I posted this early Friday in my Telegram channel…

The bullish DDOG action actually began Thursday morning, when a trader bought the February monthly expiration, $155 strike calls. 

The flow continued Friday morning with a big buyer grabbing over $308K worth of the monthly expiration, $149 calls. After that, another buyer went more conservative with the September monthly, $165 calls. 

And then just after 11 a.m. ET, someone else bought the March monthly, $150 calls (over $226K in premium). 

I listed another BIG trade in the flow that I covered during a live session on Thursday, a $2.2 million short order in monthly expiration, $140 strike puts for Coinbase (COIN), which started breaking down after a big pop Friday morning. 

COIN reports after the close on Feb. 15!

As always, these short-dated plays can go to $0 if wrong. Respect the risk and trade — or don’t trade at all — accordingly!

P.S. Did You Catch ARM’S Move This Week? Chip Stocks Are Going Parabolic 

On Monday, me and Jack Carter hosted one of our famous Overnight Options sessions.

Our focus was on semiconductor stocks and particularly the ones that report earnings this month.

So far, semiconductors have been crushing their earnings…

And I expect the companies that announce the rest of month will follow suit… 

Did you catch ARM this week? It shot up nearly 60%!

If you want to see how Jack and I plan to approach these stocks, you can see what we have to say…

When you do, we’ll share nine stocks that me and my team are eyeing throughout February. 

Just Go Here!
