    The following is a list of stocks in an uptrend that have very high Put/Call ratios, i.e. bearish option market sentiment. For each stock, we'll discuss options activity and moving average trends.

    That said, many of these stocks have very low options volume. Due to these low option volumes, it's probably not very accurate to use it as a sentiment indicator. But feel free to use this list as a starting point.
