Carvana Co (NYSE:CVNA) is up 8.4% to trade at $7.61 this afternoon, and call traders are ramping up their positions, after the online used-car retailer adopted a shareholder rights plan -- known on Wall Street as a "poison pill."

Amid a string of layoffs and liquidity concerns, Carvana stock has shed 95% in the last 12 months.
