Calpine Corporation, a wholesale power generation company, owns and operates natural gas-fired and geothermal power plants in North America. Today a trader bought over 2,500 CPN May 22 Calls for $.60 debit. This trader has the right, but not obligation to buy 250,000 shares at $22 between now and expiration. I got into this trade a little too late, but I think CPN can move higher as the options activity that we saw was 30 times the usual volume it trades in a day. I think that CPN can trade north of $23, so I bought the CPN May 22 Calls for $.80 debit. Lets break down this trade.
The Trade: I bought the CPN May 22 Calls for $.80
Risk: $80 per 1 lot
