What I don't understand is "why?" How much money does any one person need? He has more money than he could ever spend in his entire life. What does he get out of bullying companies? Apple stock did go up because of the stock buybacks and the dividend, but it mostly went up because of great sales and Icahn has nothing to do with that. While he's certainly a big shareholder of Apple, Apple should pay him no mind. Jobs certainly would have ignored him.
