Posted on the 22 November 2013 by Phil's Stock World @philstockworld

Traders positioning for shares in The Fresh Market to extend losses in the near term appear to be buying the Dec $40 strike puts. Around 1,100 contracts changed hands during the first half of the session against open interest of 438 contracts. Buyers of the puts paid an average premium of $1.19 per contract this morning, and may profit at expiration next month in the event that TFM shares slip 3.0% from the $40.03 intraday low to trade below the average breakeven point at $38.81.

The stock was cut to ‘Neutral’ from ‘Buy’ with a target share price of $44.00 down from $59.00 at Sterne Agee, while an analyst at Deutsche Bank reiterated a ‘Buy’ rating on the stock, with a lowered target share price of $48.00 down from $58.00. Shares in TFM are down roughly 35% since this time last year.

BAC – Bank of America Corp. – Trading in the Nov 29 ’13 expiry weekly calls on BAC this morning indicates some options traders are positioning for shares in the name to continue higher ahead of expiration next Friday. Shares in Bank of America are up 1.1% on the session at a new 52-week high of $15.76 as of 11:30 a.m. EST and have risen roughly 5.0% since the start of the trading week.
