Occidental Petroleum $OXY: Unusual Call Option Activity…

Slide 6:

As I mentioned a few day’s ago, tomorrow’s OPEC meeting has big consequences for the oil market . If smaller OPEC members convince Saudi Arabia to cut production, we could see a sudden upturn in oil prices.

Slide 7:

On the other hand if the Saudis stick to their guns, an abrupt downturn into the mid-$30 a barrel range becomes quite possible.

Slide 8:

Which is the most likely scenario ? As I mentioned on Tuesday, the de-facto leader of the Middle Eastern oil cartel, Saudi Arabia, will likely hold production steady in an effort to retain market share.

Slide 9:

But someone with a big bank rollmight see it differently…

Slide 10:

On Tuesday a well-heeled trader bought 14,000 Occidental Petroleum $OXY $76.50 calls expiring on December 18th, 2015. With the trader paying $1.00 a contract to open the position he’s making a $1.4 million bet!

Slide 11:

Keep in mind, $58 billion market cap $OXY is the second largest independent oil and gas producer in the world behind ConocoPhillips $ COP.

Slide 12:

I don’t know about you, but to me it looks like someone is betting Saudi Arabia is about to fold under the pressure of low oil prices!

Slide 13:

Let’s be clear…

Slide 14:

If $OXY closes below $76.50 on December 18th, 2015, our esteemed trader will instantly lose $1.4 million.

Slide 15:

But with the results of the closely watched OPEC meeting hitting the wires late tomorrow, we’ll very likely know how this trade pans out by the middle of next week.

Slide 16:

Here’s something else I find interesting…

Slide 18:

As you can see, $OXY is trading at a very important technical downtrend (red line) from the early 2015 highs. Should OPEC surprise the market tomorrow, a break above $77.50 resistance will bring in a slew of new buyers.

Slide 19:

On the other hand, if bulls retreat from the $77.50 area on an uneventful OPEC meeting,a quick downturn towards $70 will likely play out.

Slide 20:

One thing is for certain…

Slide 21:

I’m keeping a close eye on $OXY and many other oil producers tomorrow and early next week. A surprise production cut from OPEC will get me instantly bullish on much of the oil exploration industry.

Slide 22:

Keep in mind, oil industry ETFs are a quick and efficient means of diversifying in the oil industry.
