Because his text alone moved this stock higher then ER, China mobile, $150bil in bank, new iPad/iPhone/iOS
Cook sucks and even his grandson running FB is doing much better without revenue.
I will vote for Icahn, Uncle Carl knows the signals of incompetant management teams. Cook should be just a Chief Operating Officer, nothing more. A comparison in football is Cook should be a defensive coordinator, not a head coach.
AAPL has no leadership. Timber is a fcing joke.......I've said that for 2 years and have been proven right.....he's worthless , incompetent, overpaid, and has produced nothing but a colored phone as billions have disappeared...........don't bet against AAPL he says, but everyone who did made millions !!! BWHAHAHAHA.
Icahn has my vote for what it's worth. AAPL is a ship with a broken rudder right now. AAPL management and BOD think Shareholders don't matter or we'd get a better rate of return on our investment. Oh and to you naysayers out there, flucke you, I'm hanging onto my shares in the hopes that someone can come in and replace Cook and Opie and will prove up my investment. 0% annual ROR doesn't cut it.
Icahn's vote is another silly sideshow that will be easily crushed. Apple will continue to invest and disperse its massive cash holdings properly. That is, with the company's best long term interests in mind, not that of short term activist investors.
I will vote with Icahn also unless the AAPL management tells me specifically what they can do with 150 Billion Dollars that they cannot do with 100 Billion. I want to know what they need the extra 50 Billion for.
