Ford Motor (F): Almost 13,000 weekly 15.50 calls expiring this Friday were bought, mostly for $0.08 to $0.12, as investors position for a short-term rally in the automaker. F rose 3.25 percent to $15.27.

Dish Network (DISH): Some 5,000 September 37 puts were bought for $2.15 and an equal number of September 45 calls were sold for $1.20. Known as a collar, the trade cost $0.95 and will protect a long position in the media company against a push to the downside. DISH rose 0.69 percent to $39.60.
