Sonos Inc (NASDAQ:SONO) is jumping today, after the wireless speaker maker reported a surprise fiscal third-quarter profit, with top- and bottom-line results beating Wall Street's estimates. In addition, Sonos issued raised its full-year EBITDA guidance. 

Last seen up 6.1% at $16.60, Sonos stock is on track to snap a four-session losing streak. The equity is also looking to bounce back above its 60-day moving average, which has pressured the stock since early May. Year-to-date, the stock is down 1.8%.

SONO's typically quiet options pits are alive with activity this morning. So far, 685 calls and 727 puts have crossed the tape, which is 10 times the average intraday volume. Most popular is the September 15 put, followed by the August 17.50 call.

This penchant for bearish bets is nothing new. Sonos stock's 10-day put/call volume ratio of 4.32 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) sits higher than all other eadings from the past year. Echoing this, the security's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 1.04 ranks in the elevated 94th percentile of annual reading. 

The shares are also brushing off at least one bear note. BofA Global Research slashed its price target to $20 from $23.70. Coming into today, the 12-month average price target of $20.50 was a 23.4% premium to last night's close.

While short sellers have been hitting the exits, there is still plenty of pessimism left to be unwound. Short interest fell 14.6% over the last two reporting periods, yet the 12.90 million shares sold short make up 10.8% of the stock's available float, or more than one week's worth of pent-up buying power.
