Pros Anticipating Bull Move in This Resource Name

Pete Najarian has spotted unusual options action in a big resource name, and the action has piqued his curiosity.

Specifically, the Pit Boss is watching Alpha Natural Resources , which he thinks may have more upside despite big gains earlier in the week.

As you may know, shares of this coal company surged 11% on Thursday after the company posted third-quarter profits that easily beat Wall Street estimates, but according to Najarian's interpretation of the options activity, there's more room to run.


He tells us big money scooped up 11,000 of the Dec 32 calls in Alpha Natural Resources, suggesting ANR could make a sharp move higher.

And the bet makes sense. ”Coal and steel is moving in this tape,” Najarian says.
