The market may be focused on the coronavirus, but that didn't stop an usual
amount of trade activity from occurring in Uber (UBER) options. The ride share company is
known for losing lots of money, but the most recent earnings were quite optimistic. The
CEO expects the company to turn a profit by the end of the year and the fourth quarter
losses were narrower than expected. Someone was inspired by the news and bought 2,400
long-term call spreads that make money above $43.50 all the way up to $60 by next
January. The trade was partially financed by selling puts. If you want to do a similar trade
but cheaper and safer, you can do a narrower call spread and not use the short puts
component of the trade.
