BOSTON, Dec 9 (Reuters) - Billionaire investor William Ackman’s hedge fund Pershing Square Capital Management has made a new bet on Agilent Technologies Inc, according to a regulatory filing made on Monday.
This marks the second time Ackman’s $7 billion fund has announced a new position this year, following a purchase of Berkshire Hathaway Inc shares earlier this year.
Agilent Technologies’ stock price jumped nearly 5% in after-hours trading after Ackman’s investment was made public. (Reporting by Svea Herbst-Bayliss; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
