Shares of airline manufacturer Boeing (BA) have been gradually trending down over the past year. However, one trader sees the possibility for a strong rebound in shares in the next few weeks.
That’s based on the March 4 $250 calls. With just under 40 days until expiration, 4,707 contracts traded compared to a prior interest of 138, for a 34-fold jump in volume. The buyer of the calls paid $1.26 to make the trade.
Shares of the company last went for about $205, down over 23 percent from a 52-week high of $278. A rebound of 22 percent to $250 is certainly possible in the next few weeks, particularly if the overall stock market heads higher.
- How Options Gives me an Extra DAILY Paycheck
What if you could trade one simple option, once a day... be done in 10 minutes... and have a 96% chance of winning?
And here’s the thing: This option trade is so simple, it took me about an hour to learn.
Yet some people get college degrees and don’t make this much.
Action to take: The poor performance in shares over the past year could point to a rebound, particularly if economic indicators related to travel improve in the coming weeks. That makes shares an attractive buy here, especially with the market likely to rebound from its recent sharp selloff in that timeframe.
Traders may like the calls, which are an inexpensive enough trade to offer the potentially for triple-digit returns if shares have a strong rebound in the next few weeks. However, if shares don’t move high enough for fast enough, the option could end up expiring worthless, so traders will want to be nimble.
