The shares of Roku Inc (NASDAQ:ROKU) are entering 2021 with rumors that the streaming giant is in advanced talks to acquire Quibi's entire content catalog. Quibi, a Los Angeles-based streaming service, launched on April 6 and offered entertainment and news in short-form videos for mobile users, but announced its closure in October. Financial terms of the deal remain under wraps, and ROKU was last seen down 1.2% to trade at $328.04 this morning.

Roku stock emerged as a pandemic staple in 2020, rising up the charts and locking in a Dec. 23 all-time high close of $360.56. Though its pulled back slightly over subsequent sessions, the equity boasts an impressive 272.9% rise over the last nine months. Meanwhile, the security's 20-day moving average is acting as support at the moment, helping the stock stay above the $330 level. 

Short-term option traders are flashing a preference for puts. In fact, the stock's Schaeffer's open interest ratio (SOIR) of 1.22 sits in the elevated 88th percentile of its annual range, indicating short-term option traders have rarely been more put-biased. 

Now is certainly an opportune time to speculate on the streaming stock's next move with options.

What's more, ROKU's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) sits at 79 (out of 100), indicating the equity has tended to exceed option trader's volatility expectations during the past year.
