Software concern Twilio Inc (NYSE:TWLO) is plummeting today, last seen down 17.1% to trade at $46.45 following the company's earnings report.

No less than 16 members of the brokerage bunch slashed their price targets on TWLO. Jefferies stood out amongst the firms, adjusting its price objective to $50 from $60. meanwhile, Keybanc cut its rating to "sector weight" from "overweight." Coming into today, 13 of 28 covering analysts in question rated the security a "hold" or worse, while the 12-month consensus target price of $71.82 represents a hefty 55.1% premium to last night's close.

Options traders are weighing in as well. So far, 38,000 calls and 21,000 puts have crossed the tape, which is 11 times the total volume typically seen at this point. The most popular contract by far is the May 50 call.
