Breaking Down the Grand Slam Home Run Trade of the Year 

by | Jan 22, 2024

I did a video about a week and a half ago on an unusual options order in Super Micro Computers (SMCI) that I just had to revisit today after the stock surged another 12.6%. 

At the time on Jan. 8, a trader placed a $1.7 million order in the February monthly expiration, $380 strike calls. SMCI was trading just under $319 a share. 

The call option was trading around $11.70 at the time. 

Just after the open Monday morning, the stock reached about $477 — that’s over a $150 move in just nine days — pushing that call option to $102.30!

That’s about a 775% move higher…

Heck, even if you didn’t buy the option and just got shares of the underlying, that’s worth a party in and of itself!

This is easily  the trade of the year so far, and I gave it away for free on YouTube, in my Telegram channel — in real time — and in this very newsletter. 

This is the kind of trade that can make your year, so be sure and check out my video breakdown up top. And down below, you can check out the day’s top flow — it’s a trio of earnings plays this week. 

Just be sure to always respect the risk, because these trades could go to $0 if wrong, especially the two weeklies!
