John Paulson's Barrick (ABX) (GLD) (GOLD) (IAG) Positions Changed

After a rough 2011, which followed a record-breaking 2010, John Paulson changed his positions in gold-related stocks SPDR Gold Trust ETF (NYSE:GLD), Randgold Resources (NASDAQ:GOLD), Iamgold (NYSE:IAG) and Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX).

SPDR Gold Trust ETF (GLD), which continues to remain his largest holding, was lowered by Paulson by close to 3 million shares, now owning 17.3 million shares in the gold ETF. As of December 31, SPDR Gold Trust shares held by Paulson had a market value $2.6 billion.

Randgold Resources (GOLD), Iamgold (IAG) and Barrick Gold (ABX) were among the 10 positions Paulson increased his holdings in, a nod towards the continued belief that some gold miners are still undervalued when measured against the price of gold.

Other gold holdings of Paulson include NovaGold (AMEX:NG), Gold Fields (NYSE:GFI) and AngloGold Ashanti (NYSE:AU).
