Energy Stocks Are Starting To Show Signs Of Life (XLE)
Notes: Yesterday, someone rolled out 55,000 June $84/$89 call spreads ($0.36 credit) into 55,000 June $77/$82 call spreads ($1.61 debit). The June $84/$89 call spreads were initially put on for a $1.70 debit on February 3rd. He/she is taking a loss on the June $84/$89 call spreads, but they remain bullish on the sector and decided to add another $68K+ of premium to the trade with a breakeven of $78.61. The top holdings of the (XLE) include: (XOM), (CVX), (SLB), (KMI), (EOG), (COP), (OXY), (PXD), (APC), (WMB). Anadarko Petroleum and ConocoPhillips have both saw big upside call buying in just the last few days. Check out yesterday’s Options Report to see the new activity in (APC) and where traders were placing bets in (COP) last week.
