What a crock..
Icahn is out to only line his own pockets.
He recently buys in to BEA knowing that if he gets a large enough position, he can try to bully it in to a sale. So he gets his quick profit in the name of "shareholder value".
But is his actions really in the shareholder's best interest?
Don't think so.
BEA isn't officially on the chopping block and the board most likely acted in the company's best interest. Icahn clearly isn't.
One has to ask if the SEC shouldn't be looking in to Icahn and any affiliation he may have we Oracle, or any of its board of directors...
On the surface, something smells, and I'm not in the state of Denmark, or a Shakespear play. .;-)
