Johnson & Johnson (JNJ): About 15,000 October 70 calls were bought for $0.43 against open interest of 7,290 contracts as investors look for upside in the share price. JNJ rose 0.37 percent to $65.69.

Morgan Stanley (MS): Some 14,000 June 14 calls were bought for $0.09 to $0.15. Volume was below open interest and they expire today, so the activity may result from short-term bullish bets or existing positions being closed. MS rose 0.04 percent to $13.94.
