Our bragging rights were reinforced with this mornings continuation of volume and price .
Please see the entry ( Thursday) the news release that has Jack A. Bass Managed Accounts happy to add to our position.
We have not seen the shorts panic – yet.
optionMONSTER systems show that a trader bought 3,950 September 10 puts for $3.10 and sold 3,950 June 10 puts for $2.65 yesterday. Volume was above the previous open interest in each strike, so these are clearly new positions.
This calendar spread cost $0.45 to open, which is the most that can be lost until that first expiration. The maximum profit will come if OPK is right around $10 at the mid-June expiration.
It is interesting to note that the trader used in-the-money puts to create a bullish trade. Essentially the same thing could have been done using calls in the same strikes. (See our Education section)
OPK surged 8.4 percent to $8.39 yesterday on positive clinical data. The pharmaceutical and diagnostics company fell to $7.32 last week, its lowest price since early August. Shares were above $12 in mid-October.
