Short Seller Chanos: Buy the Power-Grid Build-Out

Renowned short-seller James Chanos says his only long position these days is in the power-grid build-out companies. But he has a caveat about other types of building.

"We're short construction companies that are still doing physical build-out of buildings, say, for example, in Las Vegas," the president and founder of Kynikos Associates told CNBC. "It's just a disaster, from a construction point of view."


One of his favorite power-grid builders is Quanta Services.


Disclosure information for James Chanos was not immediately available.
