Options traders are targeting Canada Goose Holdings Inc (NYSE:GOOS), after the apparel retailer's disappointing fiscal third-quarter results and annual forecast. So far, 15,000 calls and 29,000 puts have crossed the tape, with overall volume running at 15 times the intraday average. The April 22 put is the most popular, followed by the 19 put in the same monthly series, with new positions opening at the latter. At last glance, GOOS was down 20.2% at $19.68, as the security adds to its 36% year-over-year deficit.


Align Technology Inc (NASDAQ:ALGN) is up 27.1% at $358.97 at last glance, after its fourth-quarter results marked its first quarterly win in a year. No fewer than six analysts lifted their price targets after the event, including Evercore ISI to $375 from $230. Since the start of the year, ALGN is already up 70.4%. 

HanesBrands Inc (NYSE:HBI) is moving toward the bottom of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) today. The company's fourth-quarter profits of 7 cents per share were in line with analyst estimates, while revenue came in above expectations. The retailer's dividend cut and dismal profit and net sales forecast is weighing on shares, however. Year-over-year, the equity is down 57.3%.
