John Paulson: We're Making A Killing On Defaulted Debt

John Paulson has released his third-quarter investor letter. In it he discusses his huge arb on Pepsi and Pepsi Bottling Group, and the amazing opportunities in defaulted debt. (via DealbBook)

Market Folly: As per the letter, Paulson executed many arbitrage and event driven plays given their background in that strategy. In particular, they reference the Wyeth/Pfizer deal which we’ve noted as a play that was ripe with hedge funds. Interestingly enough, Paulson & Co also had been playing arbitrage with Pepsi (PEP) and Pepsi Bottling Group (PBG). We highly recommend reading the letter above.
