Just thought I'd let some of my old friends from this board know about some wacky call buying in AGNC. Check out the AUG 25 calls. Someone is snagging up calls like crazy 17,000 contracts so far today against little open interest, for .02- .05 cents.There is also 16,000+ open interest in SEPT 24 calls. My guess is someone knows it's gonna get some strong upward movement.
Last time there was action like this AGNC was going up 36 plus strong and someone but a boatload of puts. I remember we were all laughing at the fool. Then weeks later one morning it flash crashed. Those of you who lived it will remember. Something like 3 million shares in the first 2 minutes of trading, and it never fully recovered.
interesting there were also 2 call trades in the July 2s and July 3s of 50,000. Don't know if they were buys or sells but one of them was probably hedged with the shares. I don't know about this company the option activity brought me here. maybe someone here can make use of it.
