Calls on BJ Services Co. (BJS) are active this morning. The stock hit its lowest levels in almost four years in mid-January when it fell to $19.30 a share. Howover, BJS has outperformed over the past few months and is now testing $30.00 a share. It appears that some traders expect the strength to continue, as a large block (12,600) of BJS October 35 calls were purchased for $1.45 a contract on the PHLX early in the trading session. The activity is perhaps part of a bullish spread on the oil service company. Crude was trading up almost $3.00 to $109 a barrel Monday morning.
