Re: "No brainer" (Icahn)
You can usually tell when Icahn wants something, it is all about reaping in the biggest leap in stock price in the next quarter, the future of the company be damned.
As long as the company is still in business and the stock price still buoyant when he dumps the stock, everything is fine, what happens after that is irrelevant.
This sort of corporate raping investment is what is wrong with modern business. The executives strive to make a go of it and these corporate raiders come in and ruin everything for a quick buck and don't care if they destroy companies or lives in the process. The stockholders should be pushing for long term stability and gain, not how much they can make in the next quarter.
