Carl Icahn is never far from the spotlight, but it seems like he’s been everywhere and involved in everything in 2013.

Among Icahn’s more notable ways of making the news this year are hassling Apple (AAPL) to buy back more stock, bidding to take Dell (DELL) private, going long on Herbalife (HLF) in order to punish a rival who went short, and selling a huge stake in Netflix (NFLX) at an obscene profit.

It’s never boring when Carl Icahn is around, and if you want in on the fun, consider buying shares in Icahn Enterprises (IEP). IEP is up 128% for the year-to-date, while the dividend yields 5%.
