Cook, Icahn to talk expanded share buyback at September dinner

updated 04:25 pm EDT, Thu August 22, 2013

Icahn pushes for greater profits

Investor Carl Icahn and Apple CEO Tim Cook will meet next month for a business dinner, according to the former's official Twitter feed. "Spoke to Tim. Planning dinner in September. Tim believes in buyback and is doing one. What will be discussed is magnitude," he writes. Icahn met with Cook earlier this month, putting forward the idea that Apple should expand its buyback program. The company is already in the middle of spending $60 billion on buybacks through 2015.

Icahn has a major incentive to push further buybacks. He already has approximately $1.5 billion invested Apple; the recent announcement of that stake helped send Apple's share price surging back over $500. With such an inflated value, a future buyback could turn a significant profit.
