T. Boone Pickens’ 10 Favorite Stocks

T. Boone Pickens started his career as an oilman. He parlayed his knowledge and experience into forming BP Capital as a fund that is focused on profiting from the energy markets. Because oil, and to a greater extent energy, was Pickens bread and butter for so many years, whether he takes long or short positions has more to do with how he interprets the company’s growth and the industry at large. However, because he tends to make directional bets, when he profits, he profits bug, but when he losses, the losses can be staggering. Here are T. Boone Pickens’ top 10 favorite stocks:
