On Wednesday night, 2 oil equipment companies priced IPOs. While solid companies in a booming oil and gas shale sector, neither has been hyped a lot by the IPO buzz network.

The other stock is Forum Energy (FET) that provides products and services for the oil sector. Neither stock has gotten much fanfare. For example, both companies have under 30 email alerts followers on Seeking Alpha, while Splunk (SPLK) already has 52 followers, yet it won't go public until next week.
