    Motley Fool thinks SLCA shares look cheap any way you slice 'em.

    Are These 4 Stocks Still Cheap Investments?
    April 18, 2013
    2. U.S. Silica (NYSE: SLCA )
    Shares of monocrystalline sand producer U.S. silica have soared this year along with the prospects for the country's energy production. The company's sand has become increasingly popular as a proppant, which are pumped into wells to keep fractures open and hydrocarbons flowing, for use in the oil and gas industry. Using proppants can significantly improve a well's profitability and productivity. Aside from its booming oil and gas business, U.S. Silica provides raw materials for various industrial purposes.

    Shares of U.S. Silica are nowhere near book value, but that doesn't matter in every industry. If growth pans out even close to what analysts expect (EPS growth of 47% between 2012 and 2014) shares look cheap any way you slice 'em. Current P/E is under 15 and the PEG ratio resides under 0.40. Just be sure to keep an eye on drilling activity.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
