Big -9.13% Change: After closing the last trading session at $8.00, OWENS & MINOR opened today at $7.93 and has reached a low of $7.26.

Trade approach: A movement as big as -9.13% is a significantly bearish indicator, so this trade is designed to be profitable if OMI maintains its current direction and does not revert back to pricing on the bullish side of $7.27 on 17-Jul-2020. If possible, the trade has been padded such that slight movement against the trade would still return a profit.
