Uranium producer Cameco has run rapidly since November, and yesterday the options volume was bullish.
OptionMonster's tracking systems detected unusual activity in the February 22 calls, with the largest trade pricing for $0.70, and the March 22s, which went for $0.90. The volume was above the previous open interest at each strike, showing that new money was being put to work.
Calls lock in the price where shares can be bought and can provide significant leverage if the stock rallies. But these contracts will expire worthless in the absence of a move.
