Icahn is not dishonest. I got 5 shares in 1987. Now worth alot. Had I bought Central Illinois Public Service (CIPS) as my broker wanted, I would have basically nothing. IEP is safer than a utility stock. I owe Carl bigtime.
Did you misplace a few zero's? 5 shares? In 1987 they were worth about $6. Now $72 ($66 profit X 5 = $330). Is that a lot to you? If you are paying a full service broker you would have very little left.
i selected dividend reinvestment. If you go to the IEP website, choose "investment calculator" and put in the date I purchased and "5 shares" - you will see its now worth a fortune. You will be shocked.
