Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced programming for its Global .NEXT Digital Experience conference, which will be hosted virtually from September 8th through September 11th.
Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX) shares experienced unusual options activity on Thursday. The stock price moved up to $22.16 following the option alert. * Sentiment: BULLISH * Option Type: SWEEP * Trade Type: PUT * Expiration Date: 2020-08-21 * Strike Price: $21.00 * Volume: 1469 * Open Interest: 10403 Ways Options Activity is 'Unusual'Extraordinarily large volume is one indication of unusual option activity. Volume refers to the total shares contracts traded in a day when discussing options activity. Open interest describes unsettled contracts that have been traded but not closed by a counter-party. In other words, for each contract buyer, there must be a seller. A purchased contract remains open until a seller closes it, and vice versa.When a contract has an expiration date in the distant future, it is generally another sign of unusual activity. Usually, additional time until a contract expires allows more opportunity for it to reach its strike price and grow its time value. Time value is important to consider because it represents the difference between the strike price and the value of the underlying asset.Contracts with a strike price far from the underlying price are also considered unusual because they are defined as being “out of the money”. This occurs when the underlying price is under the strike price on a call option, or above the strike price on a put option. These trades are made because the underlying asset value is expected to change dramatically in the future, and the buyer or seller can take advantage of a greater profit margin.Understanding Sentiment * Options are “bullish” when a call is purchased at/near ask price or a put is sold at/near bid price * Options are “bearish” when a call is sold at/near bid price or a put is bought at/near ask priceAlthough the activity is suggestive of these strategies, these observations are made without knowing the investor's true intentions when purchasing these options contracts. An observer cannot be sure if the bettor is playing the contract outright or if they're hedging a large underlying position in a common stock. For the latter case, the exposure a large investor has on their short position in common stock may be more meaningful than bullish option activity.Using These Strategies to Trade Options Unusual options activity is an advantageous strategy that may greatly reward an investor if they are highly skilled, but for the less experienced trader, it should remain as another tool to make an educated investment decision while taking other observations into account.For more information to understand options alerts, visit https://pro.benzinga.help/en/articles/1769505-how-do-i-understand-options-alertsSee more from Benzinga * Unusual Options Activity Insight: Electronic Arts * Preview: Berry Global Group's Earnings * Earnings Outlook For Church & Dwight Co(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
