Nearing the halfway mark in today's session, here are the individual equity names with the most call and put buying on optionMONSTER's ActionTracker data system.

Bank of America (BAC): Some 46,000 March 10 weekly calls expiring next Friday were purchased for $0.07 to $0.11 as investors look for the stock to keep rallying. BAC rose by 3.25 percent to $9.54.

Yahoo (YHOO): Volume surged in the July 16 puts, the April 16 calls and the October 15 puts as a large protective position was apparently rolled forward by three months. YHOO rose 1.31 percent to $15.08.

Sprint Nextel (S): A block of 10,000 April 3 calls were bought for $0.10, but volume was below open interest in the strike. S rose by 0.36 percent to $2.81.
