It's a play on the coming boom in housing. While the pandemic put the brakes on it, the housing industry is already starting its unexpected comeback. And why is "unexpected" important? Because a lot of people will be looking elsewhere for opportunities, and that leaves bargains for us.
Americans are still ready and willing to buy a new home. There is plenty of pent-up demand to get out there to look around, whether in person or virtually.
Over the past few weeks alone, home purchases have been skyrocketing. And we're seeing 13% more than at this same time last year. Housing starts jumped 4.3% in May, building permits soared 14.4%, and mortgage applications were 21% higher in mid-June than they were last year at this time.
That is a bucketload of "unexpected" good news that could send one housing stock soaring.
And we're cashing in by using the best options trade on Robinhood today...

All of that housing activity isn't just helping out sellers; it's helping out suppliers, retailers, and real estate services, too. Using the word "booming" is not an exaggeration.
One of Andrew's screens turned up home construction stock Lennar Corp. (NYSE: LEN), a leader in single-family homes. The stock is already up 15% this year, but its story is just getting started.
Since late May, it has been moving sideways in a range, but money continues to pour in. We know this because volume changing hands on days when the price goes up is much greater than volume of days when the price goes down. That tells us that the bulls are more aggressive and demand for shares is building, despite the sideways action.
You could buy the stock for about $60.18, where it closed Friday, and hope that its price makes it back to the February highs near $70. It would be a nice gain of 16.3% and a little pocket change for your wallet.
But as you know, we like to juice things up a bit with an options trade, where we get a whole lot more bang for our bucks. Remember, options can help limit your risk, but they aren't without risk. Make sure not to risk more than you're willing to lose, and make sure you understand your trade. That won't be a problem here, because this one is very simple.
Andrew likes the LEN Nov. 20, 2020 $65 calls, especially if you can get them for less than $8.50. Considering Friday's closing price of $6.45, that should be no problem.
If Lennar stock breaks out from its May-June range, it would be no surprise to see it reach $70 in just a few short weeks. The option price could soar 80% or more.
