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.
Geron (GERN): More than 3,000 December 6 calls were sold, mostly
for $0.65. Volume was below open interest, which suggests a trader
is taking profits after a big run in the name. GERN fell 1.98
percent to $4.95.
Cemex (CX): More than 7,000 December 10 calls trade in the cement
maker. They were initially purchased in bullish trades, followed by
selling. CX fell 0.63 percent to $10.31.
Blackstone Group (BX): A block of 3,000 November 25 puts was sold
for $0.03 against open interest and an equal number of December 25
puts was bought for $0.47. That suggests a protective position in
the private-equity firm was closed and rolled forward in time. BX
fell 1.39 percent to $26.25.
