Carl Icahn is pressuring Apple (AAPL) to share its cash load with shareholders as AAPL stock posted gains early Wednesday afternoon.
The billionaire investor purchased $500 million in AAPL stock over the last two weeks, increasing his company’s Apple stake to $3 billion. Icahn tweeted that Apple “is doing great disservice to shareholders by not having markedly increased its buyback.” He will follow this message up with an in-depth letter to the technology giants.
Carl Icahn said that his firm’s investment in AAPL stock is a “no brainer.” Apple shares are up 0.7% in early afternoon trading Wednesday despite being down 0.25% YTD.
