T.Boone Pickens BP Capital Management 13F Analysis

I was going to do the Q3/Q4 comparison, honest! Fortunately, the good folks at Bespoke did it, while wearing Dolce & Gabbana and hoisting a Pol Roger (vs. Brooks Bros. & Bud [never to be confused with Berry Bros. & Rudd])
Here's Bespoke (table link below):

With T. Boone Pickens dominating the oil news today with his call for short-term declines from current levels, we updated our table of Mr. Pickens' hedge fund (BP Capital) holdings from his Q4 '07 13-F. As of the end of last year, his biggest holding remained Suncor Energy (SU), and he increased his share amount in the stock by 18,000 from the end of the third quarter. XOM is his second biggest holding, followed by OXY, DNR and SLB. From the 13-F, two stocks were liquidated from his fund in Q4 -- RIG and GSF. SGR was the only stock that remained in his portfolio that he sold shares in. Mr. Pickens also added two new companies to BP Capital in the fourth quarter of last year. He added nearly 100,000 shares of Valero Energy (VLO) and 392,500 shares of Clean Energy Fuels (CLNE).

Based on his holdings at the end of last year, these positions are collectively down 7.71% on the year. ABB, JEC, SLB and KBR are down the most, while DNR, SGR, IOC and GBX are the only stocks that are up.

Go for the table, but come back, I'll have a lullaby for you.
