By
A A A

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.

Clearwire (CLWR): More than 28,000 December 2 calls were purchased for $0.15 as investors look for upside in the share price. CLWR rose 8.96 percent to $1.10.

MetroPCS (PCS): Volume surged in the August 6 puts, the August 8 calls and the August 10 calls, but volume was below open interest in all three. It appears the 8s were sold for $0.95 while the 6s and 10s were bought back for $0.05 and $0.15, respectively. That indicates that an existing bullish three-way trade was closed profitably after the shares rallied. PCS rose 2.54 percent to $8.81.

NII Holdings (NIHD): More than 20,000 December 7 puts were bought for $1.30 and $1.35 as investors look for downside in the share price. NIHD rose 0.72 percent to $6.96.
