Paulson & Co. Funds Turn Around with December Rally

The final quarter of 2010 was good to John Paulson and his hedge fund firm. Only four months ago, Paulson & Co.'s funds were struggling to make gains until a December rally turned things around.
As recently as four months ago, 2010 appeared to be something of a lost year for Paulson & Co. The firm’s flagship was down 11%—other funds managed by the firm were also in the red—and the New York-based hedge fund giant looked poised to suffer its first annual loss since it burst onto the scene with a triple-digit return three years ago.

But Paulson’s Advantage Fund posted a huge rally in the first half of December and was up 14% on Dec. 10, The New York Times reports. The strong December follows a 12.5% jump in September, which put the fund into the black. Through November, the fund was up 3.7%.

“Several of his general investment themes this year came to fruition,” an investor told the Times. Source
