Barclays upgraded Match Group Inc (NASDAQ:MTCH) to "overweight" from "equal weight," this morning, noting Tinder parent has successfully transitioned into a value stock.

The bull note is helping MTCH ahead of the session's open, with the shares last seen up 4.3% to trade at $36.30. The stock is down 16.1% in 2023 and hovering near its lowest levels since early 2018. The equity's 160-day moving average capped a rally back in late January.

Pessimism can also be unwound in the options pits. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), MTCH's 10-day put/call volume ratio of 0.99 ranks in the 83rd percentile of its annual range. Echoing this, the equity's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 1.18 sits higher than 91% of annual readings.

Now might be a good time to weigh in with options. Match stock's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (VIX) of 54% stands higher than 20% of readings from the past month. This indicates options traders are pricing in relatively low volatility expectations --a  boon for premium buyers.
