Largest option buying in equities so far

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.

Citigroup (C): Investors snapped up more than 13,000 July 27 calls, mostly for $0.25 and $0.26, looking for upside in the share price. C rose 0.04 percent to $27.11.

Bank of America (BAC): Almost 22,000 January 15 puts were bought for about $7.50. Volume was below open interest, so it may result from an investor unwinding an unprofitable put sale. BAC rose 0.13 percent to $7.54.

eBay (EBAY): About 8,300 August 45 calls were bought for $0.86 to $1 as investors looked for upside in the share price. The July 42 calls have also been purchased but volume is below open interest in that strike. EBAY rose 8.63 percent to $43.95.

Microsoft (MSFT): Some 21,000 July 32 calls traded for $0.05 to $0.07, but volume was below open interest in the strike. MSFT rose 0.79 percent to $30.69.
