SoFi Technologies Inc (NASDAQ:SOFI) is falling today, after news that the personal finance company will acquire digital banking platform Technisys for $1.1 billion. The deal, which is expected to close by the end of the second quarter, will benefit consumers as the company looks to create a "one-stop-shop" experience. At last check, SOFI is down 5.4% at $10.78. 

If these losses hold, SoFi Technologies stock will log its lowest close in more than one year. SOFI has been struggling to break above pressure at the $13 level, while its 40-day moving average has helped keep a cap on gains for most of the month. Year-to-date, the stock is down 30.3%. 

Shorts have been building their positions, with short interest up 50.8% during the two most recent reporting periods. Now, the 95.41 million shares sold short account for 15.9% of the stock's available float. 

Meanwhile, in the past 10 days, 3.09 calls have been picked up for every put at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX). That bullish sentiment is continuing today, with 71,000 calls across the tape so far, compared to 27,000 puts. The weekly 2/25 12-strike call is the most popular.
