Cisco (CSCO) is down $1.61 to $17.16 on disappointing guidance and one player seized the weakness to collect 23 cents on an Oct 16 – 19 bullish risk-reversal, 54500X. The big combo is possibly tied to 500K shares at $17.16 and looks like an opening position targeting a rebound in Cisco through mid-October. The stock had a brief stint above $21 per share at the end of the first quarter before coming under pressure early in the Q2. CSCO is now 19.4 percent below its Apr 2nd 52-week high.
