Focus Media has been grinding higher, and one investor apparently thinks that it still has room to run.

optionMONSTER's Heat Seeker monitoring program detected the purchase of 2,500 April 28 calls for $0.40 and the sale of an equal number of April 27 calls for $0.75. Volume was below open interest in the April 27s, indicating that an existing position was closed and rolled from one strike to the other.

The investor collected a credit of $0.35 and remains long the Chinese advertising company, which operates digital billboards in mainland cities.

FMCN closed unchanged at $24.27 yesterday. It briefly traded below $18 in July, then started to climb and exploded higher on Aug. 13 after receiving an offer to be taken private. Shares drifted lower in subsequent weeks before bouncing at their 50-day moving average last month.

Calls outnumbered puts by a bullish 4-to-1 ratio on Monday, according to the Heat Seeker.
