Thursday’s Order Flow Is a Nonstop Chip Stock Party for Marvell Earnings

by | Mar 7, 2024

What’s the hottest sector of the entire year to trade? 

If you answered “Chip stocks, duh,” well, you nailed it! And with Marvell Technology (MRVL) reporting earnings after the close Thursday, the order flow has been a veritable chip stock party all day long!

There is of course the usual avalanche of Nvidia (NVDA) order flow, which isn’t anything new. Other usual suspects also abound in names like Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Supermicro Computer (SMCI), Taiwan Semiconductors (TSM) and Arm Holdings (ARM). 

We’re also seeing names we don’t get too often like Microchip Technology (MCHP), Micron (MU), Texas Instruments (TXN), NXP Semiconductors (NXPI), all ahead of Marvell’s earnings report after the close. 

So let’s talk Marvell…

The stock is trading just under $84 as of 1 p.m. ET, and market makers are implying a $10.10 move higher or lower. 

We’ve seen five different orders hit today in MRVL, three bullish and two bearish. 

Generally during earnings season, we see a lot of very short-dated flow, but everything today so far has been longer-dated, which is of course a little safer should things go wrong. 

A weekly expiration will go to $0 if you’re wrong, but pushing things out gives you a little more time. 

Also worth mentioning: Puts are oftentimes hedges against a long stock position should the stock tank on earnings. That way, the trader can get something back should they lose all their gains from the underlying stock. 

However, puts that are in the money are a lot sexier than a put that’s way out of the money. And today’s MRVL puts are DEEP in the money, which means the buyer could have more conviction. 

With the stock trading around $84, the $82.50 and $90 calls listed below fall easily into that $10.10 implied move by market makers. Just be sure to respect the risk and never trade more than you’re comfortable losing!

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