The shares of Domino's Pizza, Inc. (NYSE:DPZ) are trading down 6.6% before the opening bell after the company reported weak second-quarter revenue and same-store sales. If the price action holds, this would put DPZ near the $253 area, right near the year-to-date breakeven level. The move would have them far south of a recent consolidation pattern, and below the 200-day moving average, a trendline the shares haven't close beneath in months.

Technical traders may also want to take note of the $240 region, which served as a floor during the stock's post-earnings bear gap from February. It would seem some bears already got a jump on the sell-off, since DPZ fell 4.3% yesterday.

Speaking of yesterday's trading, there was also heavy action at the July 250 and 260 puts, which now own the no. 1 and no. 3 spots on the security's top open interest positions list, and have helped drive DPZ's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) to a put-skewed 1.35. On the call side, the July 310 strike is most popular, where 1,461 contracts reside.
