Barclays maintains an 'Equalweight' on Owens & Minor (NYSE: OMI) price target of $32.00.

Analyst, Lawrence C. Marsh, said, "While OMI continues to post steady top-line growth in an admittedly challenging market, the company reported weaker-than-expected profits on lower gross margin, which led to a quarter that fell short of our and consensus estimates...With the weaker-than-anticipated result, we lower our C12 and C13 EPS estimates." (FY12/13 EPS estimate are both cut $0.02 to $2.08/$2.23 respectively)
