Options traders are targeting Super Micro Computer Inc (NASDAQ:SMCI), as the stock slides despite strong fiscal fourth-quarter results. So far, 47,000 calls and 40,000 puts have crossed the tape, which is already five times the average daily volume. The weekly 8/11 285-strike call is the most active, with new positions being bought to open there. At last check, SMCI is down 22.6% at $267.35, but maintains a 231.9% year-to-date lead.

Tango Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:TNGX) is at the top of the Nasdaq today, after a couple analysts introduced lofty bull notes following yesterday's second-quarter report. Guggenheim raised its price target to $16 from $12, while Leerink Partners hiked its own to $20 from $16. With shares currently up 92.7% at $7.38, both of these objectives still represent a hefty upside. Breaking above pressure at the $4 level, TNGX has jumped above its 320-day moving average as well. Year-to-date, the equity is up 4.4%. 


PubMatic Inc (NASDAQ:PUBM) is down 26.9% at $13.57 at last glance. The software name reported wider-than-expected second-quarter losses per share and a revenue win, but investors are focused on disappointing current-quarter guidance. Plus, Oppenheimer and Macquarie downgraded the shares. Since the start of 2023, PUBM is holding on to a 7% gain.
