Groupon (GRPN) adds 17 cents to $4 after falling to new lows Friday. The stock is up after the company responded to an SEC inquiry on accounting and ahead of the company’s Nov 8 earnings report. On the options front, the top trade on the stock is a 47000-lot of Nov 4 puts for 45 cents per contract. It probably covers a position opened on 10/23 when 40,000 were sold at 20 cents. The stock was around $4.50 at the time. Beyond that, much of the flow in GRPN this morning is in the Weekly 11/9 and November 3.5 calls. November 3.5s are the most actives, with 6,600 traded (81 percent Ask) against 5,634 in open interest.
