Communications firm Dish Network Corporation (DISH) saw a steep decline in shares from September into early November. Now a powerful rally is underway, and one trader sees it continuing.
That’s based on the March 2021 $35 call options. Expiring in 123 days, the options are a bet that shares will rally at least another 10-15 percent. Over 12,550 contracts traded against a prior open interest of just under 400, for a 32-fold rise in volume.
The trader paid about $3.08 for the options, so shares would need to rally closer to $38 at expiration to make the trader money. That’s near the stock’s six-month high.

Let’s face it: Things are different right now.
We can’t do all of the things we’re used to doing. But not everything has been affected…
One of the most powerful ways to make extra cash still works straight from your house — and can score you instant upfront payouts of $500… $1,500… even over $3,000 each weekday.
Action to take: This is a reasonable trade, as long as traders follow the usual caveats. There’s clearly a strong short-term uptrend in place, and the share price can likely rally to $35 in the coming weeks, well before expiration. There will probably be some resistance around $38, the prior high for shares, so traders should look to take profits as soon as the rally stalls out.
Given the price of the option, the trade should provide mid-to-high double-digit gains well before the time premium decay starts to offset the profits on this trade. On a major run that blows through the prior high, the option could be a triple-digit winner, but traders shouldn’t get too greedy.
