Jana Partners enjoyed modest gains in the first half, well ahead of the average hedge fund but slightly lagging the broader markets.
The New York-based activist hedge fund returned 5.3% in the first six months of the year, capped by a 1.6% rise in June, reported The Wall Street Journal. By contrast, the average hedge fund returned under 2% through May, and the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index 6.8% in the first half.
The $10 billion firm did not break down its performance by position in its monthly investor update. But its new investments are doing well: Walgreen Co. has returned 28% this year and AerCap Holdings 21%.
