BlackBerry has been a great beta trade for some time, and option traders are looking for the smartphone maker to spike much higher.
OptionMonster's tracking programs yesterday found some curious prints in the September 27 calls, which were bought for $0.22. That's a crazy high strike for a stock that closed the session at $15.61, up 3.93 percent.
These calls lock in the price where investors can buy stock in the smartphone maker. Because the options are much cheaper than the shares, they can result in significant leverage if BlackBerry moves in the right direction. The September 19 calls were also active, but much closer to the money.
