Stocks are mixed this afternoon, after shaking off hotter-than-expected inflation data this morning. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI) is moderately lower, and potentially on track to snap a strong three-day win streak, while the S&P 500 (SPX) sits flat, and the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC) sports a solid gain. Meanwhile, bond yields are still moving lower for the most part, despite today's data.

ChargePoint Holdings Inc (NYSE:CHPT) is the most popular stock amongst options traders today, with 165,000 calls and 91,000 puts traded so far -- five times the options volume typically seen at this point. The November 5 call is the most active contract, with positions being bought to open there. At last check, CHPT was down 12.4% at a record low of $3.94. The stock slipped into penny stock territory in late September. 

Coherent Corp (NYSE:COHR) is up 6.7% to trade at $35.26 at last check, breaking into positive territory for the year, after a price-target hike from Raymond James to $42 from $35. Today's pop has COHR extending yesterday's 6.6% gain, after the company received a $1 billion investment from Denso and Mitsubishi Electric.

COHR Oct11

Akero Therapeutics Inc (NASDAQ:AKRO) is down 20% at $14.52 at last glance, after no fewer than four analysts slashed their price targets. This move comes after yesterday's sharp drop following disappointing trial data. Since the start of the year, AKRO is down 73%.
