This morning, Keybanc Capital Markets resumed coverage on Twilio Inc (NYSE:TWLO) with an "overweight" rating and $96 price target. The firm said the communication software concern is "well positioned" to increase its gross margins through its engagement strategy, and utilize its recurring software to expand its leadership.

Thanks to the broad market selloff though, Twilio stock is brushing off the bull note, last seen down 5.4% to trade at $71.53. The shares have carved out a channel of lower lows all year, with pressure from several short- and long-term moving averages keeping a lid on any positive price action. Year-to-date, TWLO is down 72.8%.

Bullish bets continue to be the norm in the options pits, per Twilio stock's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 2.63 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX). This ratio stands in the 99th percentile of annual readings, suggesting calls have rarely been more popular than they are at the moment.  

Echoing this, TWLO's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 0.66 sits in the relatively low 20th percentile of readings from this past year. This hints at a call-bias amongst short-term options traders.

Options look like a solid route as premiums are looking affordable right now. The security's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) stands higher than just 27% of readings from the past 12 months. In other words, these players are pricing in low volatility expectations right now.
