Follow the Sand to the Real Fracking Boom

The Huffington Post - 26 Nov 2014 04:19
Follow the Sand to the RealWhen it takes up to four million pounds of sand to frack a single well, it's no wonder that demand is outpacing supply and frack sand producers are becoming the biggest behind-the-scenes beneficiaries... of the American oil and gas boom. Demand is exploding for "frac sand" -- a durable, high-purity quartz sand used to help produce petroleum fluids and prop up man-made fractures in shale rock formations through which oil and gas flows -- turning this segment into the top driver of value in the shale revolution. "One of the major players in Eagle Ford is saying they're short 6 million tons of 100 mesh alone in 2014 and they don't know where to get it.

SAN FRANCISCO ( TheStreet) -- Twitter  reportedly has held talks to acquire selfie app developer Shots Mobile, which is backed by pop singer Justin Bieber, according to a CNBC  report. Investors... may ultimately like such a deal because it could help Twitter ramp up its growth of its user base. The San Francisco-based app developer disappointed investors in the third quarter when it announced lower than expected growth in its user base. The company added approximately 13 million monthly active users in the quarter to end the period with 284 million users, yet Wall Street was looking for upwards of an additional 18 million monthly active users. As a result, Twitter's stock took a hit of nearly 10% after it reported earnings. Must Read: 12 Stocks Warren Buffett Loves in 2014 The Shots app...

Uber Will Be Valued At $40Uber is close to raising a new round of funding that would value it between $35 and $40 billion, according to Bloomberg. T. Rowe Price is said to be among the new investors. The valuation matches what... Business Insider's Henry Blodget heard from a source last week. It would be a massive leap in valuation for the transportation company, which was valued at $18 billion in its last round just this summer. The company has been embroiled in controversy recently, after one of its executives suggested hiring investigators to dig up dirt on journalists.  But an internal presentation from late 2013 shows the company well on its way to making $1.5 to $2 billion in gross revenue this year. Revenues on New Year's Eve grew more than 4x between 2012 and 2013. Join the conversation about this story »
