At least one investor is placing a bullish wager on communications stocks leading up to Netflix Inc.’s earnings report Thursday.

The $3.8 billion Communication Services Select Sector SPDR Fund, or XLC, took in over $662 million on Wednesday, the most since October. A large chunk of that appears to have come from one trader, who bought close to 5 million shares worth more than $223 million.
