John Paulson, founder and senior fund manager of Paulson & Co, told investors via conference call that he believes housing prices are rebounding and a strong economy recovery is underway. Paulson made headlines three years ago when his firm correctly bet home prices would decline and made $15 billion in the process. Paulson believes this is the perfect time to buy a home based on his forecasts that housing prices will grow 3 to 5 percent in 2010 and jump 8 to 12 percent in 2011. He is also bullish on stocks recovering from bankruptcy.

Paulson told investors that he has revamped his portfolios to take advantage of the short and long-term trends that he is forecasting. He also announced that he is closing his Advantage Funds to new investors in order to prevent assets from reaching an unmanageable level.
