Investor Carl Icahn said he had dinner with Apple chief Tim Cook and "pushed hard" for the tech company to give a $150 billion stock buyback, according to reports.
Icahn, who owns a $1 billion stake in the company and is known as an activist investor, pressured Cook even after Cook already promised $100 billion in dividends and buybacks earlier this year, according to Bloomberg News. Icahn also shared that the talks will continue in three weeks, according to his Twitter account.
Icahn has made a name for himself lobbying companies to change business tactics to boost share price and profits. Apple, with its dragon's hoard of $146.6 billion in cash and investments, is an attractive target.
