  • The buy comes about a week after the company’s VP of Financial Reporting bought 5,000 shares, paying $50,400. And Comstock’s VP of Operations bought 20,000 shares for $201,000. That’s on top of other insider buys going back to last August. There have been no insider sales in the past year.

    Overall, insiders own 55 percent of the oil and gas exploration company.

    Shares have slid 18 percent over the past year, as oil has come off of last year’s highs. However, Comstock grew earnings and revenues by over 40 percent, and the company sports a 31 percent profit margin, on the higher end of the commodity space.

    That’s moved shares to about 5 times forward earnings.

    The June $12 puts, last going for about $0.75, offer mid-double-digit returns in the coming months on such a pop higher for Comstock shares.
