Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA): Current price $3.04
On Tuesday, shares got some of Monday’s steep losses back, and one trader presumably thinks that the company will hold at current levels. optionMONSTER systems caught onto the sale of 10,000 July 3 puts for the bid price of 24 cents yesterday, which is clearly a new position, since the volume was three times higher than the strike’s open interest before the trade appeared. The put selling implies that Zynga will remain above $3 through expiration in the middle of July. It also seems that the trader is indicating willingness to buy shares if they are below that level for an effective price of $2.76.
