Four of the five FAANG stocks reported quarterly earnings yesterday.
While big-tech delivered blowout earnings, stock futures are flat this morning.
However, Workhorse Group (WKHS) has yet to report quarterly earnings.
In fact… as traders, we don’t even need to worry about them until August 10.
While shares have been trading fairly sideways since July 7…
That isn’t always bad news.
You see, sometimes trading in consolidation can be a sign of a potential move setting up in the hours or days ahead…
And those are the exact moves we want to participate in to make some money as traders ourselves!
Yesterday I saw two components of a possible hint piece together:
- WKHS volume increasing to 18.7M
- Unusual Options Activity
And today it’s hitting my list of stocks which financial professionals are thoroughly vetting…
In fact, just yesterday some option-playing cowboy pulled out his checkbook and bought:
Paying $0.65 Per Contract
For a total of $37K in Premium
I’ll explain why I find this appealing.
While $37K is pennies for a household name like Amazon… $37K is a fat bet for Workhorse.
Having calculated the WKHS August 7 18 Calls…
This option player only needs WKHS to trade around $17.25 to double their money.
What a “conveniently-timed” bet they placed…
But can we make the same move too?
You bet we can! Above $16.50 and support, and I’d give WKHS a short-term target price of $18.
And I’d be interested in buying into the WKHS August 7 18 Calls for a possible passive income trade through the weekend.
Bonus Trades I’m Watching:
- INSG August 21 15 Calls
- IDEX August 21 2 Calls
- MSFT July 31 200 Puts
I’ll be in touch later on — keep an eye on your inbox.
