Largest option trades in equities


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.

Canadian Natural Resources (CNQ): More than 3,000 January 35 calls were bought for $0.55 as investors look for upside in the energy producer. CNQ rose 0.85 percent to $32.

ITT Education Services (ESI): Almost 2,000 December 40 calls were sold for $2.40 as investors looked for a top in the share price after its recent run. ESI fell 4.11 percent to $39.24.

Dish Network (DISH): An even 4,500 December 48 puts were bought for $2.35, shortly after a large block of shares was purchased. That suggests the investor is positioning for increased volatility rather than a direction move higher or lower. DISH rose 1.48 percent to $48.59.
