Athenahealth responds to hedge fund critic (BostonGlobe)
Jonathan Bush was made for television. Or maybe it’s the other way around. He was certainly in his element last week, cycling through the business news stations on cable and online with trademark high energy and plenty of edgy one-liners. But this time, Bush was in the rare position of playing defense, trying to explain why everything was just fine at athenahealth, Inc (NASDAQ:ATHN), the Watertown health information company he runs. Bush was pushing back against an influential hedge fund manager, David Einhorn, who is well known for targeting companies he considers overvalued. Athenahealth stock has gotten clobbered recently, falling by 50 percent in just two months. Einhorn thinks it might plunge another 80 percent.

Asset surge propels Duet beyond $5bn barrier (eFinancialNews)
Duet, whose activities span hedge funds and long-only funds, private equity, and funds of hedge funds, managed more than $5 billion by the end of March this year, according to the firm’s website, up from roughly $3 billion the year before. Gabay told Financial News the rise in group assets was driven by “organic growth”. The group’s UK hedge fund business, called Duet Asset Management Limited, was responsible for a large chunk of the growth in assets.

Singapore’s Temasek starts hedge fund venture with Dymon Asia Capital (PIOnline)
Temasek Holdings, Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund, will start a venture with Dymon Asia Capital (Singapore) to back new hedge fund managers and strategies as it becomes a minority stakeholder in the firm. Temasek committed $500 million initially that will be managed by Dymon, a hedge fund manager based in Singapore, according to Dymon President Jay Luo. Temasek spokesman Stephen Forshaw confirmed the partnership in an e-mailed statement. The statement didn’t disclose the size of Temasek’s stake while Mr. Luo didn’t elaborate when asked by phone.

Breaking Up Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Would Be a Terrible Mistake (Fool)
Thornton O’glove, an eminent financial writer, recently advanced a curious proposition: Spin off Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK.A) subsidiaries and break Warren Buffett‘s company apart. In opposing this idea, I find myself in the rather incongruous position of defending Mr O’glove’s interest against his own will, as he is a shareholder of Berkshire and I am not. …In the 1960s, it was conglomeration. Today, the scale has turned full circle to the new fad of spinoffs. A favorite among activists like Nelson Peltz and Carl Icahn, these schemes are almost always justified on the merits of “focus” and the ideal of “shareholder value.”
