Options bulls are targeting Farfetch Ltd (NYSE:FTCH) today, as the shares rise 2.6% to $8.57 after Keybanc initiated coverage with an "overweight" rating and $11 price target. So far, 18,000 calls have been exchanged, volume that's 14 times the intraday average. The August 10 call is the most active, followed by the September 10 call, with new positions being opened at the latter. 

One of the best performing stocks on the Nasdaq today is 1Life Healthcare Inc (NASDAQ:ONEM). The equity is soaring up 67.9% to trade at $17.09 at last check -- its highest levels since January -- after news that Amazon.com (AMZN) will acquire the company for $3.5 billion. Jumping above long-term pressure at the 160-day moving average, ONEM is still down 39% year-over-year.

Meanwhile, one of the worst stocks on the New York Stock Exchange is Insteel Industries Inc (NYSE:IIIN), last seen down 17.7% to trade at $33.59, after the steel name's fiscal third-quarter earnings and revenue missed estimates. This negative price action has IIIN landed on the short sell restricted (SSR) list and set to snap a five-day win streak.
