Among the stocks with unusual options volume today is blue chip Visa Inc (NYSE:V), currently the top performer on the Dow. The stock is up 1.2% today at $94.58, and call volume is running at 1.5 times the expected pace today. The two most popular options are the weekly 6/23 94.50- and 95.50-strike calls, and if these contracts are being bought to open, traders are betting on extended upside for V stock. The options expire at the close on Friday, June 23, the day after Visa's investor day. 

One stock outperforming on the Nasdaq is biotech Neurotrope Inc (NASDAQ:NTRP), as the shares try to bounce back from last month's huge bear gap. NTRP shares are up 8.9% at $7.80, as they go for their sixth win in the past seven sessions, and second straight finish atop their 30-day moving average.

One big Nasdaq loser is Cheesecake Factory Inc (NASDAQ:CAKE), with the shares falling 9.8% to trade at $52.59, following the company's update on same-store sales for the current quarter. CAKE stock is now on pace for its first close below its 320-day moving average since October, though it's still slightly higher on a year-over-year basis.
