Low or No Reinvestment of Profits over the past 10 years

USEG has either been retaining a small amount of their earnings or has done so inconsistently. A lack of consistency could be due to USEG operating at a loss or them having such a strong economic moat they feel comfortable spending profits on growth. Be wary of future prospects and if applicable, inspect the moat's sustainability.
