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.
Unisys (UIS): An investor sold 2,500 July 17 calls for $2.15 and
purchased about 6,400 July 19 calls for $0.95. Volume was below
open interest in the 17s, indicating that a winning trade was
rolled to the higher strike. It's especially bullish because they
more than doubled the number of contracts owned. UIS rose 6.22
percent to $19.31. (See
Bank of America (BAC): Some 23,000 January 10 calls were purchased,
mostly for $0.40 and $0.41, but volume was far below open interest
in the strike. BAC rose 3.62 percent to $8.02.
Vivus (VVUS): An investor sold 7,215 July 30 calls for $2.58 and
bought an equal number of July 35s for $0.77. Volume was below open
interest in both, so it probably results from a bullish call spread
being closed. VVUS rose 0.70 percent to $28.72.
International Game Technology (IGT): A block of 12,000 July 15 puts
was bought for $0.30, reflecting a belief the stock may head lower.
IGT rose 1.36 percent to $15.61.
