My options screener has come up with a few interesting items of note today:
On open interest of 1391, over 10,000 Reliant Energy (RR) August 22-1/2 calls have traded.
Sallie Mae (SLM) is being taken out for $60, but the stock is trading at $55. This has sparked volume of over 12k contracts in the Jan08 $60 calls.
Someone remains bearish on Indymac (NDE) puts in a big way. Today 22,642 July 35 puts have traded on open interest of 8800. Large blocks have printed on the offer. It apears as if the player may be rolling a big May position into the Julys.
Another eye catcher is the Cyprus (CY) Jan20 puts, with over 15k trading on previous open interest of 3356.
