Jim Chanos is the man, that I can tell you. Barry’s new interview with the legendary money manager and short-seller has too many highlights for me to list individually.
This week, we speak with famed short seller Jim Chanos, founder and president of Kynikos Associates LP, the world’s largest exclusive short-selling investment firm.
Chanos has identified — and sold short — many of the past 3 decades best-known corporate disasters. His celebrated short-sale of Enron shares was dubbed by Barron’s as “the market call of the decade, if not the past 50 years.” He also made bets against Baldwin-United, Commodore International, Coleco, Integrated Resources, Boston Chicken, Sunbeam, Conseco, Tyco International, and most recently, Valeant Pharmaceuticals.
He explains why he believes Elon Musk’s first love is SpaceX, and that “Tesla is a zero.”
Make sure you find some time for this asap.
