Wells Fargo initiated coverage on U.S. Silica Holdings (NYSE: SLCA) with an Outperform rating and a price target of $27.00. Analyst Matthew D. Conlan thinks growing sand volume will drive increased profits.

"We envision SLCA's profits rising with a robust expansion of SLCA's northern white frac sand production, which we believe will be absorbed by the market as it grows well in excess of the rig count. Additionally, we judge SLCA to have a low-cost operating structure at the mine site as well as superior supply chain logistics, both of which should boost margins above competitors', said Conlan.
