Keurig Green Mountain Inc (NASDAQ:GMCR) has been in a downtrend since touching an all-time high of $158.87 on Nov. 18, giving back roughly a quarter of its value. The disappointing trend is continuing today, with the shares off 2.9% at $120.36, and speculators are betting on more downside, picking up puts at a rapid-fire rate. The contracts are crossing at twice the normal intraday pace, and account for nine of GMCR's 10 most active options.

The contract garnering the most attention is the weekly 3/27 121-strike put. Data here suggests buy-to-open activity, with speculators looking to profit on a move further south of $121 by Friday's close, when the options cease trading. GMCR has fallen as low as $119.77 today.
