Bulls Bet on Good Earnings From Toll Brothers

Buyers piled into the December 22 callsin the final two hours of yesterday's session, according to OptionMonster's real-time tracking systems.

Toll Brothers rose 2.52 percent to $20.74 yesterday. The luxury homebuilder's stock is up sharply since trading below $14 at the beginning of October, and traders are looking for still more upside.
