GasFrac Energy Services Inc. hit $14.62 in 2011 on expectations the firm's proprietary waterless fracturing service would be a hit in the North America shale oil and gas boom. However, as uncertainty in the oil patch increased last year, the company's momentum took a hit. The stock is now off its low of $1.23 this fall and insiders have been buying. Over the past 90 days, five directors have spent over $275,000 buying shares in the public market. The latest buy was on Jan. 8 when Robert Maitland bought 8,200 shares.
