Friday "Day" Fever

Friday, 5 Oct 2007 | 9:10 PM ET

You’ve heard of Saturday Night Fever? Pete Najarian had Friday Day Fever, and found himself dancing in the options pits as speculation swirled in one of the “craziest days of the year” for the options market.

Especially wild were the options for ValueClick (VCLK), Pete says, specifically the October $22 and $25 calls.

Speculative fever is boiling again in the options pits, with the Fast Money traders.

The online ad space will continue to consolidate, he says, and there just aren’t too many players left out there. People are even jumping on the October $30 calls – that’s two weeks and $5 away!

Security software firm McAfee (MFE) was also very active. October $40 call volume spiked Tuesday, and Pete Najarian urges investors to keep an eye on this name.
