Signet Jewelers may have fallen more than 25% this year, but bullish investors are betting that the tide may be about to turn for the Bermuda-based company.
The company is set to report Q1 earnings on June 6th before the bell, so Najarian believes this action is due to traders betting the stock will pop following quarterly results.
According to FactSet estimates, analysts are expecting a loss of 9 cents a share on $1.4 billion in revenue.
Signet closed at $42.63 on Friday, so it will need to pop 3.21% to hit that key $44 level. These particular calls expire on June 15, which means that as long as the stock trades above $44 by then, the traders can exercise their right to buy the stock at a lower price, and collect a profit (minus their cost to purchase the option).
As more investors have wanted to get in on this trade, the cost per options contract has surged. Last week one contract cost $1.67, versus $2.22 today -- a 32.93% increase.
On Monday's "Halftime Report" Najarian also noted that traders might be particularly bullish ahead of Signet's report given that chief competitor Tiffany blew past Q1 analyst estimates.
Tiffany hit a new all-time high last Wednesday after beating top and bottom line expectations. It also raised its full-year outlook, and announced a $1 billion share repurchase program.
