NOV Has Peaked

NOV reported strong revenue growth in Q1 and an improved EBITDA margin. Rising oil prices have helped oil-related names. Elevated oil markets could drive profitability next quarter. However, the upside appears priced into the stock. Oil prices could become more normalized if the war between Russia and the Ukraine subsides. As the Fed removes the punch bowl, the U.S. economy could stall or even decline. NOV and the economy have likely peaked. Sell NOV.
