Morningstar Quantitative ratings for equities (denoted on this page by) are generated using an algorithm that compares companies that are not under analyst coverage to peer companies that do receive analyst-driven ratings. Companies withratings are not formally covered by a Morningstar analyst, but are statistically matched to analyst-rated companies, allowing our models to calculate a quantitative moat, fair value, and uncertainty rating.

Smart Sand, which started operations in 2012 and debuted as a public company in fall of 2016, produces frac sand proppant. From its flagship location at Oakdale, Wisconsin, the company is able to ship sand via unit trains on either the Canadian Pacific or Union Pacific railways to virtually all major U.S. oil and gas basins. The company’s reserve base is centered on finer-mesh sands, which are the preferred sand grades for the slickwater fracs predominant in U.S. shale hydraulic fracturing.
