Carl Icahn has sold all if his firms Apple Stake amid China concerns
Owned a massive 45.8 million shares in Apple at the end of 2015 (FactSet).
Sold his entire position in the gadget maker on concerns of its uncertain future in China.
This couple owns $1 million in Apple Stock.
Even at the trading average at the sale, Icahn most likely made a pretty nifty profit. Calculating that 45.8 million shares at say $95 = $4,351,000,000, that is over $4 billion!
This will weigh down Apple stock which has been battered after 13 years with positive growth now turning down and expert sentiment that at least the next quarter will also result in downward sales.
Shares of Icahn Enterprises (IEP) have plunged 33% over the past year due to bad bets on oil-related companies like Chesapeake Energy (CHK) and Freeport-McMoRan (FCX), according to USA Today.
The question is how will Apple fix this?
Could we see Apple stock in the $50 range? Perhaps it will hit $75, but $50 would mean massive loss in stock valuation and investors most likely would start a massive sell off which could present a buying opportunity, but could also cause issues for investors, many why hold large positions of Apple stock.
AT&T is making slow progress to implement robocall blocking for its customers. Tell AT&T’s CEO to step it up and make robocall blocking a priority.
Your campaign to End Robocalls has caught fire, and phone companies are paying attention. Because of you and the half-million consumers who joined our EndRobocalls.org campaign, AT&T has started to make it easier for some of their customers to access robocall-blocking tools.
But we know that’s not enough. We need AT&T to set the gold standard and provide 100% of its customers with free and effective tools to block robocalls.
Join Consumers Union and 600,000+ other customers in telling AT&T’s CEO, Randall Stephenson: “Thanks for taking steps to block robocalls. It’s time to finish the job!”
Even if AT&T isn’t your primary phone provider, they’re an industry leader with millions of customers nationwide. Pushing them to act could create a domino effect that leads to action by your phone provider.
While providers like Time Warner Cable have started offering free call-blocking tools to all of their voice customers, Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT&T, has been happy to let his customers deal with the headache.
Together, we have over 600,000 voices that AT&T can’t ignore. Join us.

Open Studios AltaPasaDena, Presenting A Gift Of Art With Our Neighbors – Come Curious, Leave Inspired!
The Open Studios Tour is a Free Tour of the home studios of local artists in the Altadena and Pasadena area. During this tour, the artists open their studios to people to come in for a visit.
Open Studios is an intimate view into an artist’s domain, where ideas are conceived and come to life. When you visit an artist’s studio, the creative process is palpable. It’s unique to each artist and unattainable at your typical gallery show. That is, in essence, what makes this event so special.
People of all ages love this self-guided tour, with the flexibility to visit with as many artists as you like over two days. We have found this casual format to be a wonderful exchange between artists and visitors.
