BP (BP): An investor exited a winning position in the July 42 calls, selling 7,500 contracts for $2.35. He or she then upsized it, rolling into 19,500 July 45 calls for $0.71 in hope that the energy giant will keep climbing. BP rose 1.26 percent to $44.08.

American International Group (AIG): More than 16,000 August 45 calls were bought, mostly for $2.24, as investors look for more upside in the insurance stock. AIG rose 5.25 percent to $44.34.

Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold (FCX): Some 15,000 June 27 puts were purchased, mostly for $0.28. Volume was below open interest at the strike, so the investor may have closed an existing short position after the metal producer bounced. FCX rose 3.62 percent to $31.44.
