The security's latest rally lost steam before conquering the $96 level in the previous session, though the $87 region looks poised to contain today's pullback. The 20-day moving average also looks poised act as a floor, but year-to-date LEN is down 21.8%.

Over at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the stock's 10-day put/call volume ratio of 4.99 ranks higher than 94% of readings from the last year. Echoing this, LEN's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 2.57 sits higher than all other annual readings, suggesting short-term traders have rarely been more put-biased.
