Timing:  The stock is trading on the lower end of its six month range.
Reason:  The mix of chemical and oil services is attractive. Energy markets are likely to remain strong, but a service company such as TETRA will have less volatile cash flows. The recent drop in oil prices has depressed the stock price, making it more attractive.

Reason:  The company is still recognizing losses from 2005 and insiders are selling. We do not see the company improving in the short term.
