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.
Gold Fields (GFI): Abought 5,000 September 4 in the money calls were purchased, mostly for $0.35, as investors look for upside in the gold miner. GFI rose 2.04 percent to $4.26.
Danaher (DHR): More than 12,700 January 75 calls were sold for $3.90. Volume was below open interest, which suggests an existing bullish position was closed. DHR fell 0.95 percent to $74.49.
Kraft Foods (KRFT): An investor bought about 4,200 August 60 puts for $4 and sold an equal number of September 60s for about the same price. He or she is apparently rolling an unprofitable short-put position, hoping for the shares to rebound from their recent slide. KRFT rose 0.02 percent to $56.03.
