Paulson & Co.'s 2012 was more mixed than first meets the eye.
The firm's flagship hedge funds suffered another disastrous year: Its Advantage Fund lost 14% last year after rising 3.3% in December, while the more highly-levered Advantage Plus Fund lost 19% after a 4.5% December surge. The former lost 36% in 2011 and the latter 51%.
In addition, Paulson's Gold Fund lost 25% in 2012, falling a further 5.1% in December. It lost 11% in 2011.
But the $19 billion New York-based firm other funds bounced back last year. Paulson Partners Enhanced rose 18% after a 5.7% December surge. Credit Opportunities, which lost 18% in 2011, was up 9.1% last year with a 3.4% December return, and Recovery, which dropped 28% in 2011, returned 3.9% in 2012—almost all of it last month, when it returned 3.7%.
