When a stock receives possible buyout rumors, it usually catches a nice pop to the upside.
Additionally, call option buyers typically make sizeable bullish bets on the stock itself in anticipation of profiting off the underlying security’s possible bounce to the upside as a result of a buyout.
And in the case of Roku (NYSE: ROKU), on Wednesday, Wall Street’s options players came in and bought tens of thousands of contracts worth of ROKU July 17 $240 Calls when buyout rumors started to circulate.
The stock was trading at about $110/share. Bottom line, Wall Street’s deepest pockets took multiple six-figure bets that ROKU stock (which was already $110/share) may DOUBLE in price-per-share if a buyout does indeed take place!
Between buyout rumors and bets that the stock may double in price-per-share, it comes as no surprise that financial professionals are analyzing this stock today!
While I love ROKU’s financial catalyst, in the eyes of a technical analyst, the chart is very straight forward.
Shown in white in the chart above is ROKU’s 200-day simple moving average line. This is often referred to as the most powerful resistance or support level on any chart. In today’s case, it’s a support level as ROKU is trading above it.
I’d like to see ROKU dip a little bit, base off its 200-day simple moving average line, and trade a pop to the upside if it happens.
If ROKU breaks its 200-day simple moving average line support, I’ll likely be patient with it, let it find support in the days ahead, and take a potential bullish position.
