Question regarding high implied call volatility??

Hello,

I had a question. I saw this article about a stock (EXK) I invest in which was published on July 9th 2019.


It says that investors in Endeavour Silver Corp. EXK need to pay close attention to the stock based on moves in the options market lately. That is because the Aug 16, 2019 $2.50 Call had some of the highest implied volatility of all equity options today.

From my understanding a Call is when investors believe a stock will go up. The article however goes on to state that investors are expecting a big move in one direction or the other.

Does this mean that investors are expecting EXK to go above $2.50 by August 16th or they are expecting it to go either way?

Also since this article is over a month old does anybody know how to check if this situation is still the case?

Also, according to google, EXK will report earnings on August 1st 2019 so why would their be so much volatility for the August 16th expiration date and not say August 2nd expiration date.

I appreciate any help insight you guys could give me. Thank you!
