John Paulson’s fund, Paulson & Company, is down along with stocks in July. Paulson Partners saw a 1.3% loss brought about by the tepid performance in healthcare and telecom holdings. There is concern that as interest rates rise, stocks will fall, and that may be one reason behind the decline. Its Credit Opportunities Fund fell 1.4% on losses in convertible bonds and post-reorganization equities. His event-driven Advantage fund and Recovery fund are also seeing lackluster year. The Advantage Plus fund speculates on reorganization, spin-offs and bankruptcies.
