MILLENNIUM MANAGEMENTAn SEC survivor: Hedge fund thrives after civil charges, as SAC faces heat (NYPost)
Imagine that a multibillion-dollar hedge fund is accused of fraud and pays a huge fine to settle with the Securities and Exchange Commission while its famous founder personally ponies up millions more to move past the scandal. No, this is not SAC Capital Advisors, the $14 billion hedge fund that may face civil charges over an alleged insider-trading scheme. It was Israel “Izzy” Englander’s Millennium Management, whose $180 million settlement on fraud charges related to market timing shook the hedge-fund industry in 2005. Today, Millennium has more money under management than ever — $17 billion — and boasts an annualized return of 14.45 percent and a reputation for having the toughest compliance in the industry.

Apple: A hedge fund liability? (CNN)
Once a friend of the hedge fund industry, Apple’s stock may have already turned into a foe. With roughly one out of every five hedge funds counting Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) among their top 10 stock holdings, the recent sell-off in Apple’s stock could start cutting into their returns. Shares of Apple have dropped nearly 25% since mid-September, when they hit an all-time high of $705. In a year where hedge funds have been struggling to generate returns, firms with outsize Apple holdings have been among the best performers. Returns for the average hedge fund haven’t been pretty. The Dow Jones Credit Suisse Core Hedge Fund Index was up just 2.37% through the end of the November, according to Goldman Sachs’ research.
