Salesforce Inc (NYSE:CRM) is at the bottom of the Dow today, down 3.8% to trade at $213.94 at last glance. The company announced its slowest revenue growth since 2010 as companies cut back on cloud-based software offerings. This news has the stock brushing off its better-than-expected first-quarter results and no fewer than 16 price-target hikes from analysts.

Falling from last session's more than one-year high of $225.00, Salesforce stock is still up an impressive 62.1% year-to-date. The shares are also well above recent support at the 40-day moving average.

Options bulls were targeting CRM leading up to the earnings event as well. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the stock's 10-day put/call volume ratio of 1.95 ranks higher than 84% of readings from the past year.
