Even though most of Wall Street is headed out of town, there could be an active holiday cycle as deal making remains strong, a jobs report comes out Friday, and the Dow is within range of a new record.
Pete Najarian says Hilton (HLT), judging by its options trading, could be seen as a takeover target. Today it traded about 10x its normal options activity.
Jeff Macke doesn’t think Hilton is a candidate at $40 per share because the premium is too low.
Pete also points out heavy options volume in Immersion (IMMR), a touch screen technology company that has a contract with Apple (AAPL) and just teamed up with Nokia (NOK). He thinks Immersion “might not be public at some point.”
Eric Bolling recalls an old Wall Street adage: “Never trade a quiet market and never short a quiet market.” Shorts tend to get squeezed on quiet market days, he says, so unless you’re willing to roll the dice it might be better to take a breather this week.
