Electoral-Map-2012-300x226Trading in stocks and options yesterday was dominated by the election results.  About the only sector to advance was the hospital sector.   In PSS World Medical Inc. (PSSI), there was a buyer of 6,000 Dec calls.  This was 7x normal volume and is likely a result of more certainty around Obamacare.  In green energy (energy-from-waste renewable) company Covanta Holdings Corp (CVA), there was a buyer of 4400 Jun 17.5 calls opening.  This was 35x normal and clearly a play on more government green energy investing.  In auto parts supplier Gentex Corp (GNTX), there was a buyer of 4,000 Dec 20 calls.  This was 15x normal volume.
