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.


Toll Brothers (TOL): An investor bought 9,000 February 20 calls for $4 and sold an equal number of March 24s for $1, rolling a short position out in time and to the higher strike. TOL rose 1.05 percent to $23.96.

Bank of America (BAC): Traders bought and sold the February 8 calls and February 8 puts three days before expiration. Volume was below open interest in both, so there was no clear directional bias. BAC rose 0.50 percent to $8.02

Masco (MAS): An investor bought 6,200 July 10 calls for 2.25 and sold 3,100 April 12 calls for $0.60 one day after a weak earnings report sank the shares. MAS rose 0.69 percent to $11.71.
