A quiet board for a profitable stock ! :)

Varco seems to be a stock with a regular cycle that
luckily I have caught each time at about $9. I generally sell half my stake at 25-30% profit and wait
to buy again later. Oil prices, and speculation seem to have driven this stock lately although this round I am wondering if the tool equipment group (oil) is going to turn around. Varco showed (finally) an increase in sales on its last quarter which may indicate exploration is breaking loose. Depends IMO on the price of oil and perceptions of vulnerability to OPEC control. Other thoughts out there ?
