An article that I read in Barrons in January raved about the growth of ice sports and the significant cash-flow and incredible returns in the ice rink business. Experts were quoted that rinks can have profit margins of more than 50%. It seem that there is a severe shortage of available ice in North America, with demand for ice outstripping supply. Peter Lynch described how Warren Buffett has made billions by investing in niche market companies.

I found International Training Rinks (ITR-ASE) that is capitalizing on the ice shortage and filling the niche. I haven't found anyone else doing what this company is doing. Is anyone following this company? Has anyone else read the Barron's article?
