It is not always imprudent to take on additional debt. It depends on the level. To answer your question, it can be quite bad to take on debt beyond a certain level because: It increases the risk of financial distress; It increases financial risk to shareholders because they're pushed down in priority in terms of claims to the firm's cash flows (ore precisely, their expected returns go up because – sorry to get technical – their ‘equity ß' (but not the asset ß) goes...
Ridiculous courts, and a ridiculous waste of time.    Apple should just get rid of the business and save itself the grief.
Um… compared to Apple, his performance is pathetic (see post #52 above). Someone like him has no business giving advice to Apple. (Looks like he finally realized that, and declared a victory by making a virtue out of a necessity).
Taken by itself, that sure does sound impressive. But the problem is, it just cherry-picks  a random starting point that is tilted in Icahn’s favor. Moreover, it provides no benchmark. Here’s a comparison of IEP to AAPL, for various periods (all data from Yahoo!Finance for IEP v.
