News of Omega Advisors investment helps push AAPL to nearly $500
Apple's stock price rose over the $500 mark during Wednesday trading on news of yet another investment firm taking an interest in the company. Omega Advisors' Lee Cooperman says that he agrees with <A href="">yesterday's statements by Carl Icahn</a>, and that his firm has <a href="" rel='nofollow'>adopted</a> a modest stake in Apple. Apple stock has sat under $500 for much of the last year, falling from a height of over $705 and at one point dipping down to just $385.10. It closed on Wednesday at $498.50, a gain of $8.93.<br />
<br />
Icahn called Apple "extremely undervalued," and urged CEO Tim Cook to engage in a more aggressive share buyback plan. It's thought that Icahn's Apple investment <a href="" rel='nofollow'>could be worth over $1 billion</a>, although public figures are only due to be released later this week. It's uncertain if Omega's investment will make it into SEC-mandated disclosures, since the holding has to be worth at least $100 million.
