Last quote by Carl Icahn

PROGRAM IS BROKEN AND NEEDS TO BE FIXED IMMEDIATELY. The E.P.A., in my opinion, has gone way too far, has sort of run amok with these crazy regulations. All my life I have fought the establishment – from U.S. Steel, to eBay, to Apple. I have never shied away from it. I am not going to now.feedback

Carl Icahn quotes

I don't get involved with that.feedback

Investment bankers go to CEOs of companies and say, Look, instead of investing capital, why don't you just buy back your stock, and in three years you'll be out of here and make $50 million.

A lot of companies borrow money or have too much debt on the balance sheet and yet use that money that they get to buy back stock instead of investing in their own company. And that in some way should be controlled.feedback

The market is good now and you see some GDP growth but I think part of that is you have had very low interest rates over the years.

Kathy has a history as a proven CEO, and I believe she is the right person to lead Hertz as we move forward. Her consistent track record of successes in consumer and financial services, as well as technology businesses, is impressive.feedback

Sometimes you get these situations where it's almost a no-brainer where the odds are in your favor tremendously. There's absolutely no reason that everybody was saying 'if Trump wins everything is going to fall apart' – which is nonsense.feedback

I did buy a fair amount, I guess in perspective, but not nearly what I should have.feedback

I must have met him three or four times because at the first time, I wasn't quite sure that he'd be the perfect guy to really clean that EPA up. What you have to do here is be very tough.feedback

The point I think about Donald is he's a consensus builder, he's a very smart guy.feedback

There are so many unhappy people around, and the reason they're unhappy is the stagnation. That's why I think, even those that really don't like Trump personally, should give him a shot.feedback

I'm certainly happy about it. I really think it's a very important thing for our economy in general.feedback

It's going to cost the rich guys in New York money, and that's too damn bad. But you have to think about where this country is going to be in the next five, 10 years and you can't have it going the way it's going.feedback

If he doesn't get Florida, it's a real problem. If he gets it, he's got a great shot.feedback

We would like to applaud Michael Johnson for doing a superb job navigating the company through a number of libelous attacks during this period.

I still support Donald Trump. I'm not saying he's running a campaign the way I would run it, and I've said to him that he needs to stick to the issues.feedback

Bill Ackman [is] completely wrong. I think Herbalife will be the mother of all short squeezes.feedback

A lot of S&P companies are way overvalued considering the risk premium.feedback

Over my years I've listened to a lot of salacious talk in locker rooms, bachelor parties, et cetera, by a lot of high-level people, some of whom are now supposedly so outraged. All I can do is refer to that great quote, Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone.feedback
