U.S. stocks are up, as promising "Brexit" polling continues to quell investor concerns. Among equities on focus today are biotech Opko Health Inc. (NYSE:OPK), cybersecurity stock Imperva Inc (NYSE:IMPV), and airline stock United Continental Holdings Inc (NYSE:UAL).
  • IMPV is up 9.3% at $44.21, after activist investing firm Elliott Associates disclosed a 9.8% stake in the company, saying it believes the stock is "materially undervalued." The shares are still down over 35% year-to-date -- courtesy of two sharp post-earnings plunges -- but are on pace to end the week atop their 20-week trendline for the first time since December. Despite these bear gaps, option players have kept the faith in Imperva Inc, with IMPV's 50-day call/put volume ratio at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) of 4.94 sitting higher than 94% of all other readings from the past year.
  • UAL is up 3.7% at $45.01, after estimating an extra $3.1 billion in operating income by 2018, due to its efforts to stem flight delays and offer "no-frills" fares. United Continental Holdings Inc also said it anticipates a 6.5% to 7.5% decline in current-quarter passenger unit revenue, compared to previous estimates for an 8.5% fall. Still, the shares have given up over 20% year-to-date after a steep plunge in mid-April, and are staring up at their declining 10-week moving average. Option players seem to be hopeful for a comeback, however, with UAL's 50-day ISE/CBOE/PHLX call/put volume ratio of 3.10 sitting in the 81st percentile of its annual range.
