Dril-Quip (DRQ) provides specialty products and services to the energy companies operating in deepwater and harsh environment. In 2018 so far, returns from Dril-Quip have outperformed the oilfield equipment & services (or OFS) industry, represented by the VanEck Vectors Oil Services ETF (OIH). Year-to-date, DRQ has gone up 5% vis-à-vis OIH’s 9% decline during this period. But we do not believe that DRQ, in its present form, justifies the premium in the market.

Many investors also are trying to decide how they want their investments positioned ahead of the midterm elections and with international trade concerns.

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug 20 — A steep downturn in heavyweight Chinese internet stocks and recent weakness in half of the so-called FANG group have some investors worried that a key component of Wall Street’s near-decade long rally may be low on fuel.

The futures traded lower this Friday morning following Thursday’s huge run for the stock market. Encouraging news on the trade front, which indicated that the United States and China will be renewing trade talks later this month, was the fuse that lit the market for some of the biggest gains of this year. But the trend of buying the dips has not worked as well lately as it did in prior years, and many investors have considered how they want their investments positioned for the longer term.
