Call traders are blasting 3M Co (NYSE:MMM) after J.P. Morgan raised its price target on the blue-chip manufacturing giant to $108 from $105. This bull note came after a U.S. appeals court ruled in favor of 3M and other manufacturers of "forever chemicals" a big win in the fights against legal liability for the toxic substances. At last glance, 18,000 calls have crossed the tape -- eight times the intraday average volume -- with the weekly 12/1 100-strike call standing as the most popular contract and seeing new positions being opened. The equity was last seen 1.5% higher at $98.56, looking to extend its weekly winning streak to three. However, MMM is still down 17.9% year to date, and facing pressure from its 120-day moving average.
