Lordstown Motors Corp (NASDAQ:RIDE) is surging today, up 10.8% to trade at $6.69 at last check, as Rivian's (RIVN) pop after its initial public offering (IPO) gives the electric vehicle segment a leg up. The company is also enjoying a boost from multiple deals with Foxconn, which is moving ahead with plans to buy its Ohio plant for $230 million.  Plus, the tech firm is set to enter a manufacturing agreement to develop Lordstown's electric truck, the Endurance, and has acquired $50 million of its common stock for $6.90 per share.

The update comes ahead of Lordstown Motors stock's third-quarter earnings report, which is due out after today's close. The options pits are pricing in a 24% post-earnings swing for the equity this time, which is much higher than the 8% move it averaged after its last three earnings reports, regardless of direction. RIDE was notably lower in two of those three next-day sessions.

Options traders are chiming in at full force this morning, with options volume running at five times the intraday average. So far, 30,000 calls and 11,999 puts have crossed the tape. The November 7 call is the most popular, followed by the weekly 11/12 5.50-strike call, with new positions being opened at both. 

It's also worth noting that short interest makes up a hefty 26.8% of the stock's available float. On the analyst front, one of five in coverage called RIDE a tepid "hold," while the remaining four said "sell" or worse. 

On the charts, the security is now trading at its highest level in just over a month, after middling around the $5 mark for most of October. A familiar ceiling at the $7 area looks ready to cap today's gains, though, and year-to-date RIDE still carries a 69% deficit.
