AngloGold Ashanti (AU +4.8%) powers higher after John Paulson, whose Advantage funds own a 7.4% stake, calls for a split of the company into South African operations and international operations he says could push shares as much as 68% higher. Paulson sees South African ops as a mature, high dividend-paying company, while international ops would be a growth business.
