New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/05/2013 -- MBIA Inc. (NYSE:MBI - 12.64), which rocketed to a new annual high of $12.93 on the heels of a courtroom victory. At last check, the bond insurer has seen roughly 23,000 calls cross the tape -- more than five times its average intraday volume, and about three times the number of MBI puts exchanged.
In order to profit on the play, the buyers need MBI to muscle north of the $13.60 level (strike plus VWAP) by the close on Friday, March 15, when the options expire. Currently, delta on the calls stands at 0.46, suggesting options traders give the contracts a 46% chance of moving into the money. For comparison, the calls' delta stood at just 0.13, or 13%, on Friday. However, even if MBI doesn't extend today's quest for new highs, the most the buyers can lose is the premium paid at initiation.
