February call buying suggests further rally.
The February 2020 $16 call option on Snap (SNAP) saw a 62-fold rise in volume, going from 182 open contracts to over 11,300 trade hands.
With 56 days until expiration, and with shares of Snapchat around $15.85, a 1 percent move higher in the social media firm will move the options in-the-money.

Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Citigroup, and all the big funds are getting pummeled by the all new Robinhood Effect sending some stocks to the moon...
Whenever a stock falls below fair value… the Robinhood Effect happens… and it happens FAST… and it could pay the likes of $1.83 million to regular investors.
At a price of $1.35 per contract, however, the option buyer will see the option trade at a profit come expiration if shares move over $17.
Action to take: Although the company is not yet profitable, it’s surprised investors with a move towards profitability following some changes last year that were initially negative for the business before being tweaked further.
There’s more upside here, and given the company’s balance sheet, which has more cash than debt, there’s little risk of bankruptcy or any other danger here. Shareholders should buy up to $16.
Options traders may like the February call for some quick double-digit returns. We generally prefer trades that go out a few months to let a trade play out better, but given the recent strength in shares, this trade should still make money. The company next reports earnings in early February.
