One name seeing unusual options volume today is Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE:PM), with nearly 5,000 puts on the tape -- three times what's typically seen at this point. The December 82.50 put is most active, and it looks like new positions are being purchased here for a volume-weighted average price of $1.35, which would make breakeven for the put buyers $81.15 (strike less premium paid). PM stock was last seen down 1.1% at $83.90.

Myovant Sciences Ltd (NYSE:MYOV) is at the top of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) today, after the biotech said its advanced prostate cancer drug met its goals in a late-stage study. MYOV stock is up 144.9% at $14.84, set to close above its 200-day moving average for the first time since April.

Kohl's Corporation (NYSE:KSS) is at the bottom of the Big Board, last seen down 18% at $47.90 -- good news for options bears. The department store chain reported adjusted third-quarter earnings and same-store sales that came in below the consensus estimates, and slashed its full-year adjusted profit forecast.
