Bumble Inc(NASDAQ:BMBL) is seeing an unusual amount of bearish options activity. So far today, 8,174 puts have exchanged hands, which is seven times the intraday average volume, compared to only 107 calls.

A catalyst for this negative sentiment remains unclear, with the shares last seen down 1.3% at $20.76.

Meanwhile, TAL Education Group(NYSE:TAL) is one of the worst stocks on the NYSE, last seen down 9.8% to trade at $9.10.
