Target(s): 29.75, 28.80, 27.60
Key Support/Resistance Areas: 34.55, 32.90, 32.60, 31.00, 29.50, 28.50, 27.00
Time Frame: 1 to 2 weeks

Why We Like It:
OC has made a lower high and a lower low and I believe the stock will make a another lower low, or at least retest its recent lows which is almost -5% lower than current levels. The stock is testing its 20-day and 50-day SMA's from below which I also think will hold as resistance. If OC bounces there is also a downward trend line and congestion above to keep things in check. Our stop will $34.72 which is above the downward trend line and its highs from late May and Mid June.

Suggested Position: August $32.50 PUTS, current ask $2.50
