The Most Unusual Trade of the Day

The retail sector was obliterated today after Kohl’s KSS – NYSE lowered its full-year 2017 earnings guidance.

Every baby was thrown out with the bathwater, and sharp traders smelled blood and came out to bottom-feed on underpriced retail stocks.

Of the notable trades we saw cross the tape, Dick’s Sporting Goods DKS – NYSE was targeted as being undervalued with the purchase of 5,000 DKS March 57.5 calls for $2.55 apiece.

With a capital outlay of just under $1.3 million in option premium and a break-even price at expiration of $60.05, DKS has to increase 10.3% for this trade to pay off.

The technical setup for DKS looks promising, as the stock easily held its own lows from December on a day when just about every other name in this beaten-up sector put in new lows. If DKS can shake off the ills of its retail peers and recover, this trade will profit $500,000 for every $1 above $60.05.

On January 1, California completely legalized cannabis for medical and recreational use - promising to spark a $20.2 BILLION industry in the Golden State alone. By getting in on the ground floor of this exceptional opportunity, you could have the chance to pocket life-changing windfalls thanks to this historic event. And one pot stock expert has his sights set on three stocks he expects to skyrocket following this crucial announcement. Get the details here..
