Short seller Jim Chanos of Kynikos Associates offered his latest short at the SALT conference in Las Vegas today: Cheniere Energy (LNG). Bloomberg News One of the big problems for Cheniere is that there has been no increase in demand for liquefied natural gas despite an increase in supply. “The great LNG demand dream has been a pipe dream, but supply keeps coming,” Chanos says. Chanos summed up the bull case on Cheniere. That it’s a financing story, not an energy story. That there’s no commodity risk because of take-or-pay contracts.

It’s true that the global economic picture looks precarious, so we can’t be complacent about risk.
