    SLCA can't seem to bounce on its own fundamentals, which are numerous, but being added to the S & P small cap 600 is somehow a big deal worth a 4.5% bounce? Craziness like this is one of the reasons I love investing!

    I think you are right about it being added to the S & P small cap 600 is a big deal. I only found this stock tonight when I was sitting here waiting for this snow that it would be nice to have a company in my portfolio that dealt in sand and 1 1/2 hour later here I am. think I will join you and add this one to my portfolio sometime tomorrow.
