Carl Icahn has ‘good conversation’ with Tim Cook, both believe Apple is undervalued


This just in from CNBC:

Icahn: I had a ‘good conversation’ with Tim Cook; we both believe Apple is undervalued.

Previously, Icahn urged Cook for a $150 billion buyback and Apple Senior VP Eddy Cue oddly Tweeted “carl ichan” a few days ago before deleting the Tweet.

Also, some recent comments on Icahn from the now-private-Michael Dell:

“It’s a big poker game to him,” says Dell. “It’s not about the customers. It’s not about the people. It’s not about changing the world. He doesn’t give a crap about any of that. He didn’t know whether we made nuclear power plants or French fries. He didn’t care.”

    Michael Dell sounds wounded.

      More like someone who has experience.. Since Michael won in the end. Carl really, really, doesn’t care.. He’s all about short term boosting.. Which is NOT healthy for a company, or a struggling economy.. both of which he could care less for.

    Carl Icahn is like the walker plague. Once he infects you, the company becomes a zombie to shareholder short term intersts.

    Why is no one complaining he’s trying to manipulate the stock?

        He really does this with his tweets.. Social media angle really can manipulate stock.

        I know, I totally agree with you, it’s just that I’ve seen TONS of people accusing him of such, especially anytime he’s in a 9to5 article.

        I thought you were joking that you hadn’t seen such comments. I think he’s trouble…

    Maybe Dell would have better luck making french fries?

    Many people know Apple is undervalued, even at the car wash.

    Apple is good $200-$300 per share undervalued. Its pathetic.
