Moderna Inc (NYSE:MRNA) is seeing an uptick in bullish options activity today, with  23,000 calls crossing the tape near the session's halfway marker -- four times the intraday average volume. Most popular is the September 140 call, where positions are being opened. Last seen up 5.8% to trade at $138.94, the pharmaceutical concern is getting a boost after the company's CEO announced Moderna would consider sending Covid-19 vaccines to China. Down 46.4% year-to-date, MRNA's positive price action today is being kept in check by the 20-day moving average, while a floor seems to have formed at the $130 level.

The equity is down 14.5% to trade at $2.24 at last check, extending its 2022 rut in penny stock territory after announcing its $10 million stock buyback program.
