Charles Schwab Corporation (NYSE:SCHW) is among the latest financial institutions to announce first-quarter results. While the bank name's earnings of 93 cents per share beat estimates, revenue of $5.12 billion missed analysts' expectations. Higher interest rates boosted income, but declining deposits hurt SCHW as the bank sector struggled last month

Last seen up 2.4% to trade at $52.01, Charles Schwab stock still has a long way to go before closing a series of bear gaps that pushed it to a March 13, two-year low of $45. Shares are down 38% year-to-date, and trading well below their 20-day moving average. 

Overall options volume is today running at triple the intraday average, with 108,000 calls and 55,000 puts across the tape. Most popular is the May 62.50 call, where new positions are being opened.

Short-term options traders have been more put-biased than usual. This is per the stock's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR), which sits in the 84th percentile of annual readings.
