MSFT: 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.

Microsoft (MSFT): An investor sold about 21,000 February 28 calls for $0.18 and bought an equal number of March 29 calls for $0.15, rolling a long position in hope the software giant continues higher. MSFT rose 0.29 percent to $27.96.

Bank of America (BAC): About 10,000 May 11 calls were bought for $1.58 as investors look for the financial giant to keep climbing. BAC rose 0.12 percent to $12.26.

Dean Foods (DF): Blocks of 7,000 contracts each were bought in the June 12 puts for $0.20 and the June 16 calls for $1.90. Volume was below open interest at both strikes, so the trade may result from an existing position being closed. DF fell 9 percent to $16.74.
