We have a mini theme running in our member reports looking at oil patch companies that reward their investors with dividends as they ride out share price volatility. In the spring, Gear Energy achieved net debt of zero. That cleared the way for Gear to initiate a monthly dividend of $0.01 a share, announced on July 27th. Meanwhile, over the past 90 days, insiders have been net buyers of 148,629 shares in the public market. Most recently, a director bought 10,000 shares on August 2nd at $1.33.
