Traders bet on further rally.
The February 2020 $30 call options on Uber (UBER) saw a 19-fold rise in volume, going from 265 open options to over 5,100 contracts trade hands.
Expiring in 52 days, shares trade just under $30, making these options at-the-money. A rally in shares should send the options up dollar-for-dollar, less any loss of time premium.
- Citigroup Trader Unearths “BTS Line” That Has Superpowers Other Indicators Simply Don’t Have
You hear it hear. You’ll hear it again. You’ll hear it all across the internet.
The new “BTS Line” discovered by Lance Ippolito is making massive waves across the world…
Already spotting big winners like 1110% on GES… 1135% on MAT… 1360% on KHC… this “Blitz Tracker Signal” shows no signs of slowing down.
And neither does Lance, who says, “My goal is to make millionaires this year”
Well, he’s on his way… and this next 24 hour trade alert could be your first 5 figure payout…
With the buyer paying around $2.15, shares would need to clear $32 in late February for the option buyer to profit at expiration.
Considered a failed IPO in 2019, Uber shares saw some further selling as the IPO lockup period expired and many employees sold off shares, including a large stake from a company founder.
With these large share sales ending, however, some of the recent selling pressure on shares may ease.
Action to take: We like the February calls as a short-term trade, and in any quick jump higher should be good for 40-50 percent gains in the next few weeks.
Speculators with some more capital can buy an option dated further out, to give themselves more time to trade the post-selling-pressure era, which will likely be beneficial to shares.
Investors may like shares under $30 for the long haul, as the share price has generally been moving higher since getting into the $25 range in November. With the company looking to better monetize its platform next year, 2020 may give investors at today’s prices substantial returns.
