Interesting article about Carl Icahn at Forbes.com. It certainly mentions Herbalife and Netflix, but it also mentions Icahn’s older investments (including railway-related ones, just to keep in line with my previous post) and his listed company. It’s also a nice reminder about the benefits of permanent capital – if you’re a super-investor… Forbes gets a little more enamored with the subject of the story than I’d recommend, but all in all a nice read.

(I haven’t looked at his listed vehicle and neither recommend nor dismiss it as an investment – individual stock comments are usually not what you’ll find here).
