RH (NYSE:RH) is getting lit up in the options pits today. The furniture retailer whiffed on fourth-quarter earnings but forecasted stronger-than-expected demand for 2024. RH is up 18.8% to trade at $352.84 at last check, trading at its highest level since a post-earnings bear gap on Sept. 8. The equity is on track for its best single-session pop since September 2020, and options bulls want in. At last check, 33,000 calls have changed hands, volume that's 17 times the average intraday amount. A slew of weekly 3/28 calls at the 360-, 350-, and 365- strikes are leading the charge, with new positions being bought to open at all three. 

Match Group Inc (NASDAQ:MTCH) stock is near the top of the SPX today, last seen up 2.3% to trade at $36.71, after the dating app company expanded its board to 12 members. MTCH has now reclaimed its year-to-date breakeven level, and is testing its 160-day moving average, a trendline that turned away rallies since January.
