Billionaire Carl Icahn asked Apple to commence an immediate tender offer to the tune of $150 billion in a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook on Thursday morning. The letter, issued in conjunction with Icahn's new website "Shareholders Square Table," comes after Icahn urged Cook to use Apple's $150 billion in surplus cash to buy back company shares. In the letter, Icahn praises Cook's leadership, but says the discussed share buyback needs to be substantial.
