Wells Fargo with a defensive options play

Wells Fargo with a defensive options play. The Nov - Jun 40 put spread is bought for $1.40, 34000X. The $5M premium purchase in the Jun term is opening and the other leg likely closes a block opened on 10/10. The flow was rolling out of Oct 40 puts with shares at $45.50 at that time and now the block is being rolled out to mid-2017, likely adjusting a stock hedge for fear of losses in shares through the next two earnings reporting cycles.
