The shares of Nvidia Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) are up 2% to trade at $206.61 today, enjoying a price-target hike to $200 from $165 at Craig-Hallum. That's two bull notes in as many weeks for the chip stock, and has NVDA already erasing last week's 1% decline. 

Nvidia stock took a nice bounce off the $170 region in late September, and has been guided higher by its 10-day moving average ever since. This trendline came into play during last week's slip, when NVDA snapped its four-week winning streak. 

The analyst setup for the equity is interesting. While the majority of the 28 covering brokerages rate NVDA a "buy" or better, its consensus 12-month price target of $195.64 is a discount to current levels. This means there is plenty of room for more price-target hikes to come down the pike, which could funnel the security higher in the short term.

Options traders would certainly welcome more upside. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), NVDA's 10-day call/put volume ratio of 2.53 registers in the 77th annual percentile, meaning calls have been bought to open over puts at a quicker-than-usual clip.

This trend is being continued today, too, with 11,000 NVDA calls on the tape already -- nearly two times what's typically seen at this point, and double the number of puts traded. The weekly 11/8 207.50-strike call is most active, and it looks like new positions are being purchased here. If this is the case, call buyers expect Nvidia stock to surge above $207.50 by the close this Friday, Nov. 8.
