Investors in Banco Santander-Chile BSAC need to pay close attention to the stock based on moves in the options market lately. That is because the July 19, 2024 $35 Put had some of the highest implied volatility of all equity options today.What is Implied Volatility?Implied volatility shows how much movement the market is expecting in the future. Options with high levels of implied volatility suggest that investors in the underlying stocks are expecting a big move in one direction or the other. It could also mean there is an event coming up soon that may cause a big rally or a huge sell-off. However, implied volatility is only one piece of the puzzle when putting together an options trading strategy.What do the Analysts Think?Clearly, options traders are pricing in a big move for BSAC shares, but what is the fundamental picture for the company? Currently, BSAC is a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) in the Banks-Foreign industry that ranks in the Top 29% of our Zacks Industry Rank. Over the last 60 days, one analyst has increased his earnings estimates for the current quarter, while none have dropped their estimates. The net effect has taken our Zacks Consensus Estimate for the current quarter from 44 cents per shareto 45 cents in that period.Given the way analysts feel about BSAC right now, this huge implied volatility could mean there’s a trade developing.

At expiration, the hope for these traders is that the underlying stock does not move as much as originally expected.Looking to Trade Options?Check out the simple yet high-powered approach that Zacks Executive VP Kevin Matras has used to close recent double and triple-digit winners.
