Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ:MRVL) calls have been flying off the shelves in recent weeks. The semiconductor stock's 10-day call/put volume ratio across the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) is 38.88, with nearly 39 calls bought to open for every put. What's more, this ratio ranks just 10 percentage points from a 12-month peak.

Calls continue to run hot today, crossing at double the usual intraday clip. By the numbers, almost 9,300 calls have been exchanged, versus a mere 334 puts. Most active is the weekly 6/5 15.50-strike call, which is seeing buy-to-open activity -- as speculators bank on MRVL toppling $15.50 by the close on Friday, June 6, when the series expires.

On the charts, Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ:MRVL) has had a rough go of it in recent months, and hasn't seen the north side of $15.50 since late March. Moreover, since touching a three-year high of $16.78 in late February, the stock has tumbled 15.4%, last seen flirting with $14.20.
