Tyco International (TYC): An investor bought 7,695 July 35 calls for $0.53 and sold an equal number of July 32 calls for $1.30, rolling a long position to the higher strike. TYC rose 0.95 percent to $30.83.

Bank of America (BAC): Some 8,400 January 2014 7 puts were bought, mostly for $0.25. Volume was below open interest, so an existing short position may have been closed. BAC fell 3.27 percent to $11.40.
