Since there is focus on this story. This is what Carl Icahn had to say about the current market and the market sentiment a month ago. Buying when everyone else is selling and the other way around.

“I think at the risk of being modest, we’re up 30 % and yet we have a huge hedge on because I agree with what Warren Buffett said. I think right now the market is giving you a false picture. I don’t think a lot of companies are doing that well. They’re taking advantage of low interest rates. You don’t have to be a “genius” to figure that out.” (Carl Icahn)
