Hedge Fund Bandits
Hedge Fund Performance ArticleTwo hedge funds made out like bandits this year thanks to short positions in securities associated with subprime home loans. Paulson and Co. has returned over 400% so far for 2007 while Scion Capital had gross gains of close to 100%.
This in itself isn't too surprising what is interesting is that they are trimming down those positions and using their capital to now bet against corporate debt. Scion specifically noted betting over $2.2B against corporate debt. It might seem odd that a hedge fund would give away it's strategy like this but the more people that add to short positions the better for him. More sellers + less buyers = more Scion profits.
