It was a good year for most fund managers, and a great year for some. With 2013 winding down, it’s clear which gurus had the winningest picks for the year. According to the Score Board of Gurus, the gurus whose stock investments of the past 12 months have gained the most are: John Paulson, Robert Karr, Bruce Berkowitz’s Fairholme Fund, Michael Price and Jean-Marie Eveillard. These investors’ stock picks significantly outperformed both the average hedge fund return through Oct. 31 of 6%, and the year-to-date S&P 500 return of 27.4%.

In fact, his Paulson Recovery Fund has already returned 27% year to date, buoyed by a nascent housing recovery. Paulson opened the Recovery Fund in October 2009 to focus on distressed investment in real estate. It has a private-equity structure, long lock-up periods, and was run by Mike Barr and Jonathan Shumaker, formerly of Lehman Brothers’ real estate private equity division, according to his 2009 shareholder letter.

Celebrated for his record payday in 2010, [url=http://www.gurufocus.com/StockBuy.php?GuruName=John+Paulson]John Paulson[/url] has more recently been noted for the deterioration of his gold fund, wherein he lost 28% in the first quarter.

I found this video of [url=http://www.gurufocus.com/StockBuy.php?GuruName=Kyle+Bass]Kyle Bass[/url] talking about his 5% stake in MGIC Investment Corp. (MTG). I believe the video is from December 2011. He goes on to describe it as a long-term hold with prospects of being a serious multi-bagger. However, it appears from GuruFocus and his form 13F that he sold 75% of his holdings in the first quarter of 2012. Assuming he did sell 75% shortly after recommending it as a buy in the video, does anyone know what might have transpired in the first quarter that changed his long-term outlook? Perhaps the python hasn't digested

In this article, I will explore five companies that are reacting to recently reported earnings to see if they present any opportunities for investors.

The stock-market collapse of 2008 claimed many victims in the hedge-fund industry, as portfolio values plummeted and a cascade of redemptions made the losses permanent for some investors. One manager who survived the mayhem and has prospered since is [url=http://www.gurufocus.com/StockBuy.php?GuruName=Bill+Ackman]Bill Ackman[/url], the 45-year-old chief of Pershing Square Capital Management. His funds under management have risen from $6.7 billion in August 2008, just before the crash, to $10.3 billion. Nearly all that growth has come from superior performance — his Pershing Square LP fund is up 16.64% a year compounded for the period 2008 through 2010 — rather than new money.
