US Silica Holdings Inc together with its subsidiaries is a domestic producer of commercial silica, a specialized mineral that is a critical input into an end markets. Its products include Oil & Gas Proppants, Fine Ground Silica, FLORISIL & Aplite.

U.S. Silica is one of the leading suppliers of sand used in hydraulic fracturing of oil and gas wells.

Additionally, the company supplies relatively smaller amounts of sand used for various industrial applications, such as glass-making.

Guru Investment Theses on US Silica Holdings Inc

John Rogers Comments on Silica Holdings - Aug 03, 2016

Some of our holdings performed well during the quarter. High-quality industrial sand producer U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:SLCA) surged +52.01% as oil prices recovered.

Specifically, the price of crude oil moved fromapproximately $35 to $52 before settling back. This move gave investors confidence that oil and gas producers, U.S. Silica’s core customer base, will remain big customers of the firm. We continue to see Silica as having a significant logistical advantage over peers in its crucial niche.

From John Rogers (Trades, Portfolio)' Ariel Fund second quarter 2016 commentary.

John Rogers Comments on U.S. Silica Holdings Inc. - Oct 20, 2015

Industrial sand specialist U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:SLCA) fell -51.67% in sympathy with a beleaguered competitor. Specifically, Emerge Energy Services LP (NYSE:EMES), which operates within a constrictive MLP structure (where it must distribute most of its profits), has sharply slashed its distribution guidance this year. The market simplistically applied Emerge’s woes to U.S. Silica, whose standard equity structure gives it far greater maneuverability. At the current price, Silica trades at a deep discount to our estimate of its intrinsic value.
