Blue Apron Holdings Inc (NYSE:APRN) is down 6.5% to trade at $5.19 at last glance, after the meal delivery kit service's Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Randy Greben resigned after less than two years, effective Oct. 17. Greben accepted a position at another company, and Blue Apron appointed Mitchell Cohen as interim CFO until the role is filled. 

On the charts, though APRN is still down 20.8% since the start of the year, it has climbed 46.7% since the start of the quarter that is ending today. The stock recently bounced off its 100-day moving average at the $4 level, however, today's negative price action combined with yesterday's 10.5% drop has the equity on the short sell restricted (SSR) list. 

Analysts and options traders are bullish towards Blue Apron stock. All three analysts in coverage sport a "buy" or better rating, plus, the 12-month consensus price target of $9.25 is a roughly 71% premium to current levels.
