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.

Cisco Systems (CSCO): Almost 6,000 June 16 puts were bought for $0.03, but volume was below open interesting, suggesting an existing short position was closed. CSCO rose 1.85 percent to $16.78.
