In the options pits today, Soundhound AI Inc (NASDAQ:SOUN) is at the top of the list of unusual volume. The stock is down 9.9% at $6.68 at last glance, after the artificial intelligence (AI) name's disappointing fourth-quarter results, after which two analysts still lifted their price targets. So far, 140,000 calls and 83,000 puts have been exchanged, which is already 2.2 times the average daily options volume. The weekly 3/1 7-strike call is the most popular, followed by the weekly 3/1 5.50-strike put, with new positions opening at the latter. In 2024, SOUN is already up 210% amid the AI craze, hitting a 21-month high of $7.90 on Feb. 27. 


Sweetgreen Inc (NYSE:SG) stock is soaring to its highest levels since November 2022, up 25% at $15.92 at last look. The restaurant chain announced a mixed fourth-quarter report, which included an earnings miss but better-than-expected revenue, and 2023 revenue that topped estimates. No fewer than five analysts lifted their price targets after the event. Year over year, the equity is up 94.8%. 

Meanwhile, biotech stock Precision Biosciences Inc (NASDAQ:DTIL) is down 30.6% at $12.83, after the company announced a $40 million offering of common stock. Because the stock rallied this past week, however, DTIL is only back at last week's levels after today's plummet. Since the start of the year, the security is up roughly 18%, though sporting a 62% year-over-year deficit.
