    OT: Some trader spent $32 million to buy put options on HLF

    On Jan. 9 at 2:50 p.m. ET, 25,000 of the January 2015 50-strike puts in Herbalife were bought for $7.25 each; at about the same time on Jan. 10, 20,000 more were purchased for slightly less.

    Buying a put option is profitable only if the stock price falls below the strike price of the put minus the money spent. In total, this trade costs over $32 million and represents a bet that Herbalife stock will fall below 42.75 by January 2015—a 50 percent decline from where the stock was trading.
