Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) loses 97 cents to $20.16 and a Nov 20 – 21 call spread trades on the chipmaker for 55 cents, 4000X. It might be a position adjustment or closing trade, as open interest is sufficient to cover. Or, it’s possibly an opening trade on the view the stock will recapture $21 (~4.2%) by the end of next week. The stock jumped 6.5 percent to $21.83 last-Thursday after earnings were reported, but have erased the gains, and a bit more, after a three-day skid since that time.
