I purchased 44 shares of Owens & Minor at $27.96. Including commissions this amounts to a yield of 3.13% and will pay me $38.72 per year. OMI is one of my favorite stocks from the healthcare sector. It runs a profitable business distributing medical supplies along with other hospital/medical related services. OMI recently reported a softer outlook for the rest of 2012 which seems to have triggered a sell off. Fine with me, I'm happy to add to my position although I paid a tiny bit more this time. They also announced plans of a sizable acquisition which will be their first venture in the European healthcare market.
I've had a number of limit orders the past week which weren't filled including MCD, APD, and INTC. Since I'm now 13 hours ahead of Eastern time, it's difficult to jump in quickly if something favorable happens. I set limit orders before going to bed and check in the morning to see if anything triggered. I'm still hoping the stock market drops a bit lower for better entry prices.
