There was a large buyer of $210 strike Apple calls prior to the earnings release when Apple was at $190, and traders are continuing to pile into these options today even after they've increased 4x in value. A backtest of this trade shows significant positive historical expected value. Options traders are positioning heavily for more upside in Apple over the next few months.
