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.

Iamgold (IAG): More than 40,0000 January 2014 30 calls were purchased. There was also heavy selling in the stock around the same time, suggesting the use of a hedged delta-neutral trade intended to profit from higher option premiums rather than a directional move. IAG rose 1.86 percent to $15.88
