optionMONSTER

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.

Intel (INTC): More than 29,000 April 22 calls traded against previous open interest. That suggests existing traders don't want to be forced to sell their shares at expiration today, and reflects a bullish sentiment. INTC rose 0.63 percent to $22.38.

Dell (DELL): Some 9,500 August 13 calls were bought, mostly for $0.74 and $0.75. Volume was below open interest, so they may have been exiting covered-call trades in the computer maker. DELL is down 3.58 percent to $13.46.

CenturyLink (CTL): Some 12,500 May 35 puts were bought for $0.35 and $0.40. Investors also bought shares in the telecom as part of a delta-neutral trade that will make money from increased volatility. CTL rose 0.90 percent to $37.18.
