John Paulson Can’t Catch A Break

Paulson made a surprise disclosure in May that he started buying Hewlett-Packard shares during the early part of 2011. His Paulson & Co. hedge fund is hardly known for plowing money into tech stocks, so the buying binge was eye-opening. … Unfortunately for Paulson and other investors, H-P shares have been clobbered in 2011, even before today’s decline. Based on back of the envelope math, Paulson’s paper loss on H-P is more than $500 million. [Deal Journal]

    on the plus side, every bandwagon idiot has stopped praising paulson in every conversation related to markets. on the negative side, now they all talk about how overrated paulson was.

    If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right.
