Pete Najarian: Unusual Activity in Casino Stock

Herbalife must start answering questions on distributor roles, says CNBC's Herb Greenberg.

Pete Najarian's proprietary heat seeker is flashing again.

This time it's identified unusual action in a casino stock.

"I've been seeing a lot of action in Las Vegas Sands," revealed Najarian on the Fast Money Halftime Report.

And it's bullish.

(You can find our conversation with Najarian just after the Herb Greenberg segment in the video above.)

The OptionMonster thinks current interest is pegged to the stock's recent pullback.

"At the beginning of February LVS was trading above $55 and in a short time it's had a pretty dramatic pullback toward $48," he explained.

It appears options investors think the stock may be oversold.

"The May 50's have been extremely active and now I'm seeing big buying in the May $52.5," Najarian said.

That suggests options investors expect the stock to trade higher – above $52.50 by the 3rd week in May.

"In the option market, big money is looking for upside in this one," Najarian concluded.
