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.

Generac Holdings (GNRC): Some 6,200 May 40 call were purchased, mostly for $0.65, as investors look for upside in the share price. GNRC rose 1.05 percent to $35.69.

Nasdaq OMX Group (NDAQ): About 5,500 April 31 calls were purchased, mostly for $0.40, as investors look for the shares to bounce. NDAQ fell 10 percent to $27.68.

Delta Air Lines (DAL): A block of 7,000 September 22 calls was bought for $0.16, but volume was below open interest at the strike. That suggests an existing short position was closed, possibly as an investor exited a covered-call trade. DAL fell 6.71 percent to $15.16.

Fifth & Pacific (FNP): Almost 17,000 April 18 puts were bought, mostly for $0.50, as traders brace for a pullback in the retailer. FNP rose 1.95 percent to $18.80.
