TJX (TJX): An investor bought some 28,000 February 45 calls for $0.25 and sold a similar number of March 45 calls for $1.05.

Chimera Investment (CIM): An investor purchased about 28,000 March 3 puts, positioning for potential downside in the share price. CIM was unchanged at $3.07.

Morgan Stanley (MS): An investor bought 10,000 January 22 puts for $2.01 and sold an equal number of January 17 puts for $0.61, hedging against a decline in the brokerage stock. MS fell 0.90 percent to $23.62.

Dendreon (DNDN): Some 10,000 August 5 puts were bought, mostly for $0.84, but volume was below open interest at the strike. DNDN fell 1.42 percent to $6.26.
