Netflix Inc (NASDAQ:NFLX) reported worse-than-expected second-quarter revenue after the close yesterday, and issued a downbeat projection for the third quarter. The results dimmed the streaming concern's earnings win and addition of 5.9 million new subscribers from April through June.

Nevertheless, analysts are chiming in with bull notes. In fact, no fewer than nine firms lifted NFLX's price target, with the highest adjustment coming from Evercore ISI to $550 from $400. The 12-month consensus target price of $451.03 is now a slim premium to the stock's current levels.

At last check, NFLX is down 8.1% at $438.754, after yesterday surging to a more than one-year high of $485. The 20-day moving average looks ready to contain this dip, which could turn out to be Netflix stock's worst single-day percentage drop since December. Year-to-date, the equity is still up 49.6%.

Drilling down to today's options activity, 149,000 calls and 108,000 puts have been traded, which is four times the intraday average volume. The most popular is the July 450 call, where new positions are being sold to open.

Over at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), the equity sports a 50-day call/put volume ratio of 1.71 that sits higher than all readings in its annual range. In other words, calls have been getting picked up at a much quicker-than-usual clip in the last two months.
