Hayman Capital filed on November 4th for its new 4.9% passive stake investment in MGIC Investment Corporation (MTG). According to the filing, Hayman Capital now has approximately 10 million MTG shares, which is a brand new position since the firm did not report any share in MTG in its last 13F. Hayman Capital’s portfolio manager J. Kyle Bass said the housing market’s losses had already been largely absorbed. Unlike PMI, Bass thinks MTG is a “pretty big positive equity position”. However, he still believes the housing market is still far from firmly “bottoming out”. MTG surges 15% on Monday after the release. The stock is closed at $2.94.
