Jim Rogers On CNBC- I Have No Shorts For First Time Since 1987

By: Alejandro garcia


For the majority of his career, Jim Rogers has had both long and short positions. As of this interview, this is one of the few times Jim Rogers does not have a short position. Among the reasons for Jim not having any shorts is a possible currency crisis and thus should avoid shorting the market. Rogers typically holds both long and short positions, but his perception of global currencies' instability has led him to pull out all his shorts, he said. The last time he can remember doing so was before the market fiasco in 1987. Among other things Jim Rogers continues to be "wildly" bullish on China, "wildly" bullish on commodities. Specifically, Jim likes Silver over Gold, Natural Gas and Cotton.
The latest CNBC interview comes a day after Jim was interviewed by the Economic Times, in which he states how the type of Chinese companies he likes to invest in. Jim Rogers prefers Chinese companies that do little to no business in western economies that are going through economic hardship and thus are able to thrive in the Chinese economy.
If you sell to Wal-Mart in the US and if you are a Chinese supplier you know there is a problem. And you are going to be suffering. Any company that deals with the West is going to have problems. On the other hand, companies that are in the water-treatment business in Asia will care less if the West disappears. They are too busy making money, too busy going to work everyday.

"I would suspect that somewhere along the line...someone's going to say, 'I'm going to start selling mine before everybody else does,'" Rogers said. "That's when you have a currency crisis." But instead of pouring money into stocks, Rogers said investors should turn toward commodities. This sector will lead the recovery if the global economy improves, and if it doesn't, they'll still be the best place because of inflation, he said.
