Ambarella Inc (NASDAQ:AMBA) jumped to a record high of $129.19 this morning, and was last seen up 2.8% at $125.94. Since the start of 2015, shares of the GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO) supplier have soared nearly 150%. Option traders are responding to today's technical milestone, with calls changing hands at 1.8 times the usual intraday rate.

Diving deeper, AMBA's weekly 7/24 130-strike call is the most active option, and signs point to buy-to-open activity. By purchasing these out-of-the-money calls, speculators are expressing confidence the shares will topple the round-number $130 level by tomorrow's close, when the series expires.

This marks a change of pace, relative to recent data from the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX). During the last 10 weeks across those exchanges, AMBA's amassed a put/call volume ratio of 0.89 -- outstripping 82% of comparable readings taken over the previous year. In other words, traders have initiated long puts over calls at a faster-than-usual clip.

It's worth noting that now appears to be an opportune time to purchase AMBA's short-term options. The stock's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) of 80 suggests the shares have tended to make outsized moves over the past 12 months, relative to what the options market has priced in.

As alluded to earlier, Ambarella Inc (NASDAQ:AMBA) has a close relationship with GPRO, providing the camera maker with microchips. The latter company is making headlines today, amid its integration with real-time streaming app Meerkat. GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO) shares are also crushing it, up nearly 5%, at last check.
