Book: A Thousand Barrels A Second

All serious investors are avid readers.  You, after all, found Independent Stock Analysis while poking around the internet.  But don’t forget the books!

  • A Thousand Barrels A Second by Peter Tertzakian was written in 2006.  Daily at ISA we note the booming oil production from horizontal drilling.  Yet this technological advancement is only a function of the ‘break point’ clearly explained in the book.  The world still produces 1000 barrels of oil a second, and last decade Tertzakian surveyed the landscape better than anyone.

Book: Get Smarter

  • Get Smarter by Seymour Schulich.  As a Canadian self-made billionaire, Mr. Schulich has a long history in the investment, mining and oil industries.  The forty-nine bite-sized self contained chapters give insight on relationships, business and values.  As a co-founder of the original Franco-Nevada, Schulich’s seventeen page appendix on the life of the business was especially interesting to me.
