Shares have been weak year-to-date, and the $20 million buy-in is a major vote of confidence that shares can start turning around from here.
In the past year, shares have traded as high as $75, but are now close to $35. Even with these powerful brands, shares trade under 7 times earnings.

Action to take: The January 2020 $55 calls trade halfway between the current share price and the 52-week high for shares. This is a speculative trade, by all means. But on a big bounce for shares, these options which cost less than $50 per contract right now, could triple or quadruple for a few bucks if shares move quickly enough.
