One name seeing unusual options volume today is Newmont Goldcorp Corp (NYSE:NEM), as the shares touch fresh highs. Traders are opening new positions at the January 2020 45.50-strike call, seemingly betting on more upside in the coming weeks. NEM stock was last seen up 2.1% at $43.59, and earlier peaked at a three-year high of $43.75.

Sol Gel Technologies Ltd (NASDAQ:SLGL) is one of the best stocks today, up 93% at $17.85, and earlier touching an all-time high of $21. This move comes after the company's acne cream succeeded in two late-stage trials.

One of the worst stocks, meanwhile, is Wave Life Sciences Ltd (NASDAQ:WVE), dropping 49% to trade at $8.12. The company's therapy for Huntington's disease failed an early-stage study, sending the shares to a record low of $7.78 earlier. This is WVE stock's second bear gap this month.
