VF Corp (VFC) is up $2.81 to $136.64 and it looks like a call “Tree” is initiated on the stock, with an investor buying the June 140s and selling the next two strikes for $1.10, 1000X. The stock hit a 52-week high of $155.72 on 5/2 before falling in 11 of 12 trading sessions and giving up 14.1 percent. Today’s spread might be a bet that VFC can make up some of those losses, but not see a signifcant rally north of $145, before the June expiration.
