Midday Market Stats October 242022

It looks like call traders are attempting to call a bottom on struggling social media stock Snap Inc (NYSE:SNAP). At the session's halfway point, the stock is trading 8.3% higher at $8.40, and more than 315,000 calls have been exchanged already -- volume that's seven times the average intraday amount. New positions are being opened at the top three contracts, the weekly 10/28 8-, 8.50-, and 7.50-strike calls. On Friday, SNAP fell to $7.33, or its lowest level since February 2019, but the struggles started with a post-earnings bear gap a year ago. More recently, the 100-day moving average has cut at least two rallies short, and driven Snap stock to an 82.3% year-to-date deficit.

SNAP Chart October 242022

Myovant Sciences Ltd (NYSE:MYOV) was last seen up 8.9% at $26.73, trading near the top of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) after agreeing to be acquired by Sumitomo Pharma for $2.9 billion. Myovant Sciences stock is now trading at its highest level since August 2021, rising well above a recent floor at the $24 level. Year-to-date, MYOV is 71.8% higher.

Chinese electric vehicle (EV) stocks are tumbling today, after Tesla (TSLA) cut its starting prices in the region by up to 9% following the reveal of President Xi Jinping's new leadership team. The news boosted fears that economic growth is taking a back seat to ideology-driven policies in China. Nio Inc (NYSE:NIO) was last seen 22.7% lower to trade at $8.66, near the bottom of the NYSE. The $23 level has stepped up as a ceiling in recent months, while NIO sits 77.8% lower year-over-year.
