Coatue Bids Farewell to Noto Before He Starts (Wall Street Journal)
Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) investors may be cheering the company’s hiring of Anthony Noto as its new CFO, but his move is a loss for Coatue Management LLC, the roughly $9 billion New York hedge-fund firm he was supposed to start at this week. Coatue Founder Philippe Laffont had called Mr. Noto “a key addition to our private investing effort” back in May, when Mr. Noto, a top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (NYSE:GS) banker who shepherded Twitter Inc.’s IPO, announced his planned move to Coatue. The hire leavened the attention Coatue had attracted earlier in the year for losses in its main fund amid the broader sell-off in technology stocks.

Pershing Square, whose 9.7 percent stake makes it Allergan’s biggest shareholder, is pushing the drug maker into a $53 billion sale to a fellow pharmaceutical company, Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl Inc (NYSE:VRX).
