CF Industries (CF) shares sank $3.27 to $62.08 Monday and one strategist apparently saw the weakness as an opportunity for a bullish spread, selling 2250 August 50 puts at $1.15 to buy the August 70 – 80 (1X2) call ratio spread at $1.27, 2250X. Open interest data indicate new positions in all three legs and therefore a bullish trade on the Deerfield, IL chemicals company.
