AutoZone, Inc (NYSE: AZO) announced a series of precautions it will take in response to COVID-19. One of those precautions included adding additional time off for eligible employees, with 80 hours for full-time employees and 40 hours for part-time. Additionally, AutoZone has also reduced most stores’ hours, increased cleaning and disinfecting, and now offers curbside pickup options. At last check, AZO stock is up .15% trading at $919.28.

Today's bump puts the security just above its 20-day moving average, a trendline that’s acted as pressure on the charts since early January. And while AZO stock still sits at a 26.5% deficit year-over-year, it did just recently bounce back from a nearly two-year low just above the $684 level.

In other words, this ratio suggests a higher-than-usual appetite for puts.
