Jim Chanos on CNBC talking about the Slow Death of the PC
Jim Chanos was on CNBC today talking about the slow death of the PC industry. He is long the innovators like Apple and Samsung but is short HPQ, IBM, and the disk drive maker. He thinks they will lose out to the cloud movement - Google and Amazon even make their own servers. Over half of HPQ's cash flow is from factoring receivables which they only disclose in the footnotes and they changed management incentive to FCF. He is not short Microsoft since he thinks they are figuring out the cloud.
