Carvana Unusual Options Activity: $9 Strike Puts
You can’t make this stuff up. The week before last, someone dropped over a quarter-million dollars on far OTM $9 strike puts. These puts were set to expire worthless unless Carvana experienced a car-pocalypse. Of course, you’ve seen the graph above. You already know what happened. These puts, which expire November 18th, so the extrinsic value combined with Carvana’s high-speed plummet is leading the value of these bearish puts to rapidly accelerate in value.
