Uber Technologies Inc (NYSE:UBER) stock is 3.5% lower to trade at $47.75 at last glance, after the ride-hailing company's second-quarter revenue missed the mark. However, Uber issued a sunny third-quarter forecast, with CEO Dara Khosrowshahi noting that the company achieved its first quarter of free cash flow over $1 billion as well as its first GAAP operating profit -- two significant breakthroughs.

Options traders are responding well to the raised outlook. So far today, 76,000 calls and 34,000 puts have already been traded, which is nine times the intraday average volume. The weekly 8/4 50-strike call is the most popular contract, and implies further upside for UBER before the week's end.

This denotes a shift in recent sentiment, based on the stock's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR). Specifically, the equity's SOIR of 0.84 ranks in the 80th percentile of reading from the past 12 months, indicating a put-bias amongst short-term options traders.

On the charts, Uber stock is pulling back from yesterday's roughly two-year high of $49.49, though its 20-day moving average remains in place as a safety net. The shares are up more than 90% this year, as they come off of their third-straight monthly win.
