Options Action: Best Buy
Discussing unusual bullish options activity seen in Best Buy, with the Fast Money team.

v>With some unusual action in the electronics retailer, Pete Najarian interprets the options story for Best Buy.

Pointing out that the stock has been moving between $35-$40, Pete Najarian saw that although today the stock was moving lower, options traders were buying upside calls, trading at over six times the open interest. Speaking of the August 39 calls, "These are a cheap shot, with only a week to peform, but it's worth taking a look at," Najarian said. He also points out that Goldman Sachs raised the company's price target, which may indicate an upside for the stock.
