Athena Health (ATHN) shares finished down 45 cents to $25.79 and options volume rose to 4.5X the average daily Friday, after the Aug – Sep 22.5 put spread traded 5200X. Looks like a buyer paying 80 cents and open interest data indicate a roll out of August and into September. It likely exits, at a loss ($1 per contract), a position opened on July 9, when the July – Aug 22.5 put spread saw interest; which appeared to roll a losing position as well.
