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

I don’t think it is a stretch to say that most of us that follow energy markets agree on one thing: The U.S. shale oil and gas business may be down at the moment, but it isn’t going away.

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.
