Unusual Options Activity: Roblox Corporation (RBLX)

Shares of metaverse gaming platform Roblox Corporation (RBLX) are down nearly 50 percent in the past year on a drop in tech stocks. One trader sees the potential for a jump higher in the coming days.

  • Special: Buy Alert For $2 Coin
  • That’s based on the October 7th $45 calls. With 16 days until expiration, 4,847 contracts traded compared to a prior open interest of 155, for a 31-fold increase in volume on the trade. The buyer of the calls paid $0.51 to make the bet.

    Shares recently traded around $37, so they would need to rise about 22 percent in just over two weeks for the option to close in-the-money. The stock has just had a sharp drop over the past week, with the stock losing nearly 20 percent, so such a rebound could happen.

    The company is still in its early stages and losing money overall, but it increased its revenue over 30 percent to $2.21 billion in the last year. And the platform remains one of the most popular metaverse options right now, with a massive popularity among a younger crowd.

    Action to take: Shares will likely move higher in time, although there may still be some short-term weakness. Investors should look to start accumulating the stock here, and take advantage of any further drops in the coming weeks.

  • Special: Squeeze this “cash spout” for instant gas, grocery, rent money
  • For traders, the options are inexpensive, and could deliver high returns on a jump in shares. As the company doesn’t report earnings next until November, such a move could come from a macro event that causes a stock rally.
