Zoom Video Communications Inc (NASDAQ:ZM) stock is down 7.8% at $74.01 at last glance, brushing off better-than-expected third-quarter results after the company slashed its annual revenue forecast due to slowing online business. No fewer than 11 analysts cut their price targets after the fact, including Deutsche Bank to $75 from $95. 

Options traders are chiming as well, with overall options volume running at seven times the intraday average. So far, 50,000 calls and 53,000 puts have crossed the tape. The weekly 11/25 70-strike put is the most popular, followed by the 78-strike call in that same series.

Puts have been picked up a faster-than-usual rate in the last two weeks. This is per ZM's 10-day put/call volume ratio of 1.06 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), which ranks higher than 81% of readings from the past year. 

It's also worth noting that ZM has landed on the short sell restricted (SSR) list today amid the negative price action. Short interest represents 7.2% of the stock's available float, and would take more than three days to cover, at the security's average pace of trading. 

Earlier trading as low as $71.90, Zoom Video stock neared its Oct. 11, over two-year low of $70.43. Year-to-date, the equity is down 60.1%, and on track to log their fifth-straight daily loss.
