Peyton Manning Isn’t The Only Legend In The Midst Of A Return To Glory

“John Paulson, the billionaire hedge- fund manager coming off record losses in 2011, reported increases in most of his funds in August as rising stock markets lifted the value of holdings, according to two people briefed on the returns. Paulson’s Gold Fund led gains with an 11 percent jump in August, which reduced losses this year to 15 percent, said the people, asking not to be named because the information is private. The Advantage funds, which seek to profit from corporate events such as takeovers and bankruptcies, and Paulson Enhanced, which aims to make money from companies involved in mergers, also rose last month.” [Bloomberg]

    Paulson & Co loses investors money at break neck speed in 2010-2011.
    Peyton Manning misses the entire 2011 season because of neck injuries.

    As a lowly Jets fan, I pray Tom Brady invests in the Advantage Fund ASAP.

  10. Orenthal James says:

    Peyton Manning had three neck surgeries in 19 months? Weak. I once had two in 30 minutes.
