The penchant for bullish bets is nothing new. This is according to Advance Micro Devices stock's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 1.74 at the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), which stands higher than 91% of readings in its annual range.
