Original Trade Post:
I noticed last week that Call options in LEA were very active, and today, VC had a huge block of Sept calls traded at the ask (most likely a trader going long). Both companies report earnings tomorrow, so there obviously are some traders placing some heavy bets that these 2 auto suppliers will beat expectations come tomorrow. I’m entering a long trade in LEA Sept $40 strike calls at .65. IV is pretty high on the options, so I’m getting them a little expensive here, but I am willing to take that bet given what I am seeing in the very bullishly lopsided options activity.
