Among the stocks with unusual options volume is parts manufacturer Allegheny Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:ATI). Despite hitting a new annual high of $23.69 out of the gate, the stock was last seen giving back some of yesterday's post-earnings gains -- down 3% at $21.62. Nevertheless, calls are trading at seven times the intraday norm. The most popular option so far is the February 22.50 call, where buy-to-open activity appears likely. As such, these traders are betting on ATI to rebound and take out the $22.50 level by the close on Friday, Feb. 17, when front-month options expire.
