Facebook IPO Could Drive Gains in This Rival: Najarian

Two stocks have landed on Jon and Pete Najarian’s trader radar after their proprietary heat seeker identified unusual action.

What must you know?

Ren Ren

Pete Najarian has Renren on his radar due to higher than usual volume in the May 9 calls. "These calls really stuck out," he says. "Plenty of buyers came in during the first hour."

Najarian thinks the hype around social media is behind these bullish bets.

As a popular social networking site in China, Najarian thinks options investors are betting that excitement surrounding the Facebook IPO may be contagious and spread to this this rival.

"This is a stock that people refer to as the Facebook of China, I'm not sure it's at that level, but it's certainly generating interest."

And from the recent options activity, Najarian concludes, "Institutional investors appear to be expecting upside."

Kodiak Oil and Gas

Meanwhile, Jon Najarian has Kodiak Oil and Gas on his radar. “I haven’t been this excited since Hooters lifted my lifetime ban,” he chuckles.

Heat Seeker has identified an unusually high volume of call buying – in fact calls outnumber puts by more than 13 to 1.

Najarian says it may be a bullish bet ahead of earnings, which come out after the bell on May 3.

Or the call buying could be a sign of broad optimism about the company’s activity in the Bakken Shale in North Dakota.
