Bullish Options Again Active On Halcon
  Today’s tickers: HK, TSLA & DOW HK  - Halcon Resources Corp. –  Shares in independent energy company, Halcon Resources Corp., began the trading session in negative territory, but a sudden burst of call buying on the stock just after 9:50 a.m. ET may have sparked the sharp reversal observed in the price of the underlying this morning. Halcon’s shares are currently up 3.0% on the session at $7.75 as of 11:00 a.m. in New York. The most actively traded options on Halcon Resources today are the Jan. 2015 $10 strike calls, with upwards of 9,600 lots in play versus open interest of 292 contracts. It looks like most of the calls were purchased at a premium of $1.45 apiece. The long-term bullish bets on Halcon pay off at expiration in 2015 as long as shares in the name rally nearly 50% to top the average breakeven point at $11.45. The Jan. 2015 expiry options saw heavy trading traffic last week as well, after more than 22,000 calls changed hands at the $12 striking price. The buyer or buyers of these contracts benefit from continued gains in the price of the underlying stock during the next year and a half. Halcon was rated new ‘Outperform’ with a target price range of $9.00 to $11.00 at Wells Fargo this week.
