Jim Chanos' latest short suggestion: GameStop (GME -3.2%), which he sees as basically an analog business in an era of digital distribution, and thus vulnerable to Blockbuster-style obsolescence. “It's cheap; boy is it cheap," Chanos cracks. “And boy is it in a bad business. This one will appear cheap all the way down." His barbs have moved several stocks today: I, II.

    Two problems here:

     

    1) GME is debt-free, so Blockbuster/Borders outcome is very unlikely

     

    2) GME has its foot in the digital doorway with Impulse, Kongregate, Jolt Gaming, and Spawn Labs.
