How Carl Icahn Won the Battle for Dell (247WallSt)
Carl Icahn won the battle to control Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) with one quick action. He walked away from the competition to run a company that has no future. After months in which he tried to convince investors of the extremely modest price Michael Dell and his financial supporters were willing to pay to take Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL) private, Icahn said he was beaten — outflanked — after he used his powers of persuasion to make the case that ancient technology has a future in a world that years ago passed it by. The case that the end of Icahn’s bid will serve him well financially has two parts. The first is that a special committee of the PC company’s board made a negative assessment of Dell’s prospects. The other is the recent trend of Dell Inc. (NASDAQ:DELL)’s earnings…

Vodafone faces pressure to raise $10 billion Kabel bid: sources (Reuters)
Vodafone Group Plc (ADR) (NASDAQ:VOD) is facing pressure from Kabel Deutschland’s largest shareholder to raise its 7.7 billion euro ($10.1 billion) offer for Germany’s largest cable company, two sources familiar with the situation said. Activist investor Paul E. Singer, founder of U.S. hedge fund Elliott Asset Management, more than doubled his stake to 10.9 percent on September 6, Kabel Deutschland said on Monday two days before shareholders have to decide whether to accept Vodafone Group Plc (ADR) (NASDAQ:VOD)’s offer. “Vodafone’s offer is not ideal. The goal is to renegotiate terms,” a person familiar with the hedge fund’s thinking said.

ASIC says hedge funds not a problem (CourierMail)
A survey of Australia’s largest hedge funds by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) found they were responsible for only a small share – 3.1 per cent – of Australia’s $2.1 trillion managed funds industry. Hedge funds are viewed suspiciously by regulators, due to a track record of using wealthy investors’ funds to disrupt financial systems chasing high returns with speculative investments, such as betting on assets failing. The hedge funds surveyed were not highly leveraged – using borrowings – and appeared to have adequate liquidity to meet obligations, ASIC said.

Hedge funds urged to promote risk management benefits to investors (Risk)
Most hedge funds are self-described absolute return vehicles that promote their ability to produce superior alpha versus other types of investments. It was the allure of double-digit returns following the tech bubble collapse that sparked the explosion of hedge funds in the early 2000s. Recent hedge funds returns have been lacklustre compared with equity investments. Moreover, the introduction of low-cost equity investments through the tremendous growth of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) coupled with disappointing returns has made attracting and retaining investors a challenge, putting pressure on existing hedge fund fee structures.

Dollar rallies in Asia on hedge fund buys (Brecorder)
The dollar staged an afternoon rally in Asian trading on Tuesday as hedge fund purchases helped push up the unit. The dollar fetched 99.96 yen from 99.69 yen in New York on Monday, while the euro was at $1.3251 from $1.3254. The European single currency strengthened to 132.48 yen from 132.10 yen in US trading. “There have been large buying orders of the euro/yen pair by hedge funds,” said a senior dealer at a major bank in Japan. “That’s helping push up the dollar/yen” rate.
