Here is How John Paulson Lost $1.6 Billion Today

John Paulson has one of the largest hedge funds in the industry. His 13F portfolio has more than $30 Billion in long U.S. positions. Today John Paulson’s 13F portfolio lost nearly $1.6 Billion mainly because of the huge decline in financial stocks. His loss in Citigroup and Bank of America approached $400 Million. He also lost more than $250 Million because of his bets on energy companies. Here are Paulson’s 15 positions that lost more than $1.25 Billion (you can check out John Paulson‘s latest portfolio):

These calculations assume that John Paulson didn’t change his holdings during the past 4 months. We also don’t know his short positions that might offset these losses.
