DECK: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
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.

Deckers Outdoor (DECK): Investors bought the January 40 calls for $0.80 and sold the January 50 calls for $0.10. Volume was below open interest in the 50s, so they may have rolled down a money-losing position, or could have opened a new bullish spread. DECK fell 0.47 percent to $31.95.

Facebook (FB): Almost 13,000 December 19 puts were bought for $0.65 as investors brace for downside in the so-media stock. FB dropped 0.80 percent to $21.08.

Micron (MU): More than 25,000 January 5 puts were bought for $0.14 and $0.15 but volume was below open interest at the strike. MU rose 2.74 percent to $6.

Walgreen (WAG): Volume surged in the January 25 calls as investors looked to reap the company's quarterly cash dividend. Similar activity appeared in the January contracts for Wells Fargo (WFC).
