Put Seller in Goodyear Tire & Rubber

More than 23,000 contracts have traded including a block of 18,000 contracts being sold at $0.60. It looks like it was tied to $11.15 stock on a 28 delta and appears to be a bet that Goodyear's stock will remain at or slightly above the $11.00 price level over the next three months.
Friday's volume has also created the largest open interest position in all of the company's listed options.
