Just a day after rallying thanks to a strong earnings report, ADI stock is down 2.7% at $83.48, and calls are trading at eight times the expected rate.

BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) is one of the top gainers on the Nasdaq today, as the shares keep their recent hot streak after Citron Research said the shares could be the next NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA). Specifically, BBRY stock is up 9% at $11.53, with Citron saying the shares could double in value and the company is a compelling acquisition target. This brings BBRY's year-to-date gain to over 67%.
