Sooo, I guess adding "Plus" to the "Paulson Advantage" was a ruse?

I'll bet that the share holders in Paulson's advantage plus enjoy paying extra to get screwed even more. What's the adavantage? Do you get vaseline versus dry with getting screwed?

But of course, doesn't every good cat house have a "Plus" plan? No happy ending in the Paulson Plus though

Today, with little volume and with no bond market in the US restricing its moves, the equity market is clearly just treading water.

Nice. How did I miss that one?

In Australia the funds can set the share prices of their holdings themselves, and thus determine their own returns. These fake returns can of course never be realized, so the funds then issue shares and pay dividends out of that. Check out my newly updated presentation:

Curious that a man paid $100 million in 2008 and launching a multi-billion dollar hedge fund a couple of years later is nowhere mentioned in the top performers nor in the bottom performers.  Perhaps I have missed something .  What is Astenbeck's performance to date?  Average?  Should it turn out that their performance IS just average , does anyone have a problem with this man's paycheck(s)?
