Trader sees cap on Allergan upside
Chris McKhann | firstname.lastname@example.org
A trader sold 3,400 December 95 calls for $1.15, according to optionMONSTER's tracking systems. The previous open interest was just 97 contracts, so this is a new position.
The options were likely sold against an existing long position in the stock in a covered call trade. This strategy would be bullish up to the $95 strike price but not beyond, as it gives up any upside in the shares beyond that level. (See our Education section)
AGN is up 1.13 percent to $91.81 this morning. The stock dipped near $86 on Wednesday after the quarterly results but quickly recovered. Shares were up above $95 three weeks ago.
