Software name Twilio Inc (NYSE:TWLO) is surging today, after posting fourth-quarter losses of 20 cents per share on revenue of $842.74 million, both of which beat analysts' expectations. Plus, the company issued an upbeat current-quarter forecast. In response, no fewer than five analysts cut their price targets, including Colliers to $325 from $375, while three chimed in with price-target hikes. At last check, TWLO was up 11.3% at $224.79. 

On track for its fifth-straight daily gain, TWLO is extending its bounce off a Jan. 27, nearly two-year low of $172.72. The security has also broken above its 30-day moving average, a trendline that helped guide the stock lower over the past few months. Year-over-year, Twilio stock is still down 47.3%. 

Options traders are targeting TWLO at 11 times what's typically seen at this point, with 35,000 calls and 26,000 puts across the tape so far today. This has overall options volume pacing for the top percentile of its annual range. The weekly 2/11 230-strike call is the most popular, followed by the weekly 2/11 200-strike put, with new positions being bought to open at both. 

It's also worth noting the security's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) sits at 86 out of a possible 100, implying that Twilio stock has exceeded options traders' volatility expectations over the past year.
