Retail stocks have remained in the spotlight, after the latest round of earnings and April retail sales data. Meanwhile, following this morning's inflation data, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans said he "could see two more rate increases this year," but he'd be "very surprised" if it was more.

Among the names with accelerated options activity is J C Penney Company Inc (NYSE:JCP), with nearly 85,000 contracts on the tape, or six times the expected intraday pace. JCP stock is down 9.5% at $4.79 after earnings -- fresh off a record low of $4.73, and short-sale restricted -- and puts are outnumbering calls 2-to-1. Most of the action has centered at the weekly 5/12 5-strike put, where some options traders seem to be selling to close their in-the-money positions.

Trade Desk Inc (NASDAQ:TTD) is one of the biggest gainers on the Nasdaq, after the tech company's strong earnings was met with applause from the brokerage bunch. At last check, TTD stock was trading up 24.8% at $49.80, after earlier hitting a record peak at the round $50 mark.
