Xerox (XRX) volume is heavy Thursday morning, with early flow including an April call buyer with shares near $6.50. A bit later a block of 5,000 April 6 puts traded for $0.40 tied to shares and looks like it may be a sale. Earnings on Tuesday took about 5% off share price so today's flow may be looking for shares to regain that lost ground.
