Jim Chanos' s Profile & Performance

Profile

Famed short seller. Jim Chanos went to Wall Street in 1980, doing investment banking deal. In 1982 got the first short idea. That got him thinking about short as a business. Now running $6 billion. $5.5 in short.

What we cover here are his long positions. We do not have his short positions. At least he is not shorting these stocks.

Investing Philosophy

His famous quote: 'One thing people always say that "I don’t want to short because it can go to infinite." But I have seen much more 0 than infinite.'
