The following article contains screen grabs from the Benzinga Pro news platform.

Carl Icahn was just on CNBC’s Halftime Report.

According to Benzinga Pro, the billionaire activist talked about everything from Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) to a potential crisis in U.S. equities.

It started out simple enough.

Then the discussed curved away from specifics and Carl entered his opinion on the macro story for the public record.

He also opined on the finer points of Accounting ethics.

Then he peppered in a bit more Apple.

He continued to defend Apple saying that if shares decreased in value he would buy more. He called it one of the greatest stocks of the century during the interview.

Carl also commented on High-Yield assets noting that he would be suspect of those securities in a rising rate environment.

And he closed it with a zinger.


Apple shares are up nearly 2 percent on the day, while Netflix is in the slight positive.

The S&P 500 is down a half of a percentage point.
