Most Active Weekly Options Table

Ford Motor Company is off 3% this morning at $13.97, following its third-quarter earnings report. While the company posted an earnings beat, poor results in Europe and Russia -- as well as costs associated with transitioning its F-150 pickup to aluminum from steel -- are weighing on the shares.

Nevertheless, options traders are taking an upbeat approach to F, with calls crossing at a 46% mark-up to the average intraday rate, and outnumbering puts by a nearly 4-to-1 margin. What's more, the stock's 30-day at-the-money implied volatility has edged 1.3% higher to 27.9%, signaling elevated demand for short-term strikes.

Looking more closely, F's two most action options are the weekly 10/31 and 11/14 14-strike calls, where more than 7,000 total contracts have been exchanged. The majority have traded at the ask price, and volume outstrips open interest, pointing to buy-to-open activity. In other words, these speculators anticipate Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) will muscle back atop $14 by the respective expiration dates.
