Options traders are blasting Pinterest Inc (NYSE:PINS) after the company's fourth-quarter revenue miss and disappointing forecast. So far, 101,000 calls and 59,000 puts have been traded, which is five times the intraday average volume. The weekly 2/10 30-strike call is the most popular, with new positions opening there. PINS is down 3.2% at $26.99 at last glance, but no fewer than eight analysts raised their price targets, while J.P. Morgan Securities slashed its price objective by $1 to $27. During the last nine months, PINS has added 32.5%.

Oak Street Health Inc (NYSE:OSH) is soaring, up 30.9% to trade at $33.98 at last glance, after earlier scoring a one-year high of $34.63. This bull gap follows news that CVS Health (CVS) will potentially buy the company for $10.5 billion. The stock already conquered pressure at its 260-day moving average in January, and has added 56.7% since the start of 2023.

OSH Feb7 

Meanwhile, Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Ltd (NASDAQ:AOSL) is down 13.5% at $31.21 at last check, after the company's disappointing fiscal second-quarter results and fiscal third-quarter-quarter revenue forecast. Year-to-date, however, AOSL is still holding on to an 8.8% lead.
