Block Inc (NYSE:SQ) is slated to step into the earnings confessional after the market closes tomorrow, Feb. 22. Wall Street is anticipating the fintech concern's earnings to come in at 47 cents per share on revenue of $5.43 billion, representing a year-over-year gain for both figures.

Looking at Block's earnings history, its shares were higher after five of its past eight post-earnings sessions, including a 10.7% pop after its November report. In the last eight quarters, SQ averaged a swing of 8.9%, regardless of direction. This time around, the options market is pricing in a much larger move of 18.2%.

Ahead of the vent, Block stock is down 2.6% to trade at $64.03 at last glance. The $64 level and its 80-day moving average are both keeping the equity's pullback in check, as is stands well above its annual lows near the $38 area. While SQ is up 11.6% over the last six months, it sports notable double-digit percentage losses in 2024 and over the last 12 months.

Despite this year's underperformance, call traders have taken an increased interest in the stock. This is per Block stock's 10-day call/put volume ratio of 3.06 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), which stands higher than all but 6% of readings from the past year, showing calls being snatched up at a much faster-than-usual rate in the last two weeks.
