7. Scripps Network Interactive (SNI)

Company Profile: Scripps Network owns television and interactive brands, including the Home and Garden Television (HGTV), Food Network, Travel Channel, DIY Network (DIY) and Cooking Channel.

Paulson's Investment: Paulson grabbed 3 million shares of Scripps during the first quarter, a position that was valued at $150 million as of March 31.

Shares of Scripps Network are down nearly 3% this year, although the stock is up nearly 10% since the beginning of February. In April, Scripps agreed to sell Shopzilla, the online shopping comparison service, to private-equity firm Symphony Technology Group for $165 million.






6. Family Dollar (FDO)

Company Profile: Family Dollar operates more than 6,600 general merchandise retail discount stores in 44 states.

Paulson's Investment: Paulson & Co. purchased 3.5 million share of the discount retailer, worth $177 million as of March 31.

Shares of Family Dollar are up 4.5% this year, as the company has been a takeover target of Nelson Peltz's hedge fund Trian Group. However, the company has thus far spurned Peltz's offer. In March, Family Dollar reported better-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings and raised the low end of its full-year outlook.
