Among the stocks with unusual put volume today is Barrick Gold Corp (USA) (NYSE:ABX), with the contracts running at triple the expected intraday pace. The most active strike is the May 19 put, where Trade-Alert confirms a 5,165-contract sweep was bought to open, in hopes of a near-term pullback. Currently, ABX stock is 3.1% higher at $20.07.
