Some Background and Strategy

Mr. Pickens made a name for himself through mergers and acquisitions in the 1980’s.  He founded the company Mesa Petroleum in the 50's and by 1981 it was one of the largest independent oil companies. From there he bought up other energy companies, expanding Mesa.

“Boone Pickens” management was established in 1997. The company has two divisions, Capital Commodities and Capital Equities, and has made billions by trading in the energies sector. Mr. Pickens is a big supporter of clean energies like wind power and natural gas, and takes an active role in the companies he invests in.

Boone made headlines not long ago for a Twitter interaction he had with the rapper Drake. Drake tweeted, “The first million is the hardest.” to which Boone responded, “The first billion is a helluva lot harder RT @Drake: The first million is the hardest.” Drake concluded the conversation writing, “@boonepickens just stunted on me heavy.” Looks like Drake still has a thing or two to learn.
