Billionaire hedge fund manager David Tepper sounded a cautious message on Wednesday, telling a ballroom packed with other managers and investors that he was “nervous” about the stock market but that this was not the time to sell.

Jana Says Firm Is Working With Walgreen After Transaction (Bloomberg)
Barry Rosenstein, founder of Jana Partners LLC, said his hedge-fund firm is working behind the scenes with Walgreen Company (NYSE:WAG) after the drugstore chain’s purchase of a controlling stake in U.K. retailer Alliance Boots Gmbh. “Effectively, this is Alliance Boots taking over,” Rosenstein said at the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference in Las Vegas today. The fund company invested $1 billion in Walgreen to become one of the biggest shareholders of the drugstore chain, Scott Ostfeld, a partner at Jana, said last month. Walgreen, based in Deerfield, Illinois, bought 45 percent of Alliance Boots in August 2012, giving it the option to acquire the rest of Europe’s largest pharmacy chain within three years.

The Odey Asset Management chief has said that British television company BSkyB’s offer for Sky Deutschland isn’t good enough. “The current proposal, a nil-premium takeover of the minorities of Sky Deutschland, significantly undervalues the company,” the hedge fund said.
