A Stock That Offers A Free Play On Fracking’s Future

We can nibble at some stocks that look undervalued in the belief that, when the day comes, they will appreciate considerably, but tying up a lot of money in investments that could well be static at best for some time is not a smart thing to do. That is why when I read the words “free option for investors” in reference to a company’s frac sand business in a recent research report from a large Wall Street firm it piqued my interest.
