H&R Block loses 4 cents to $16.28 and an Apr 15 – Oct 18 call spread is apparently bought on the tax preparer for 85 cents, 1100X, and probably rolls a position. April 15 calls are $1.28 in-the-money and are being bought to close. The Oct 18s look opening and the spread might adjust a buy-write play on HRB after a 22.3 percent advance in shares since September. The activity comes ahead of earnings, due out Wednesday afternoon.
