While most of the Street is hyper-focused on the upcoming Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) event Tuesday afternoon (see: Everything You Need To Know Before Apple Inc.'s Big iPhone 6 Event), one investor -- arguably the investor in Apple -- is shrugging: Carl Icahn.

Shares of Apple have ticked back over the $100 level in early-afternoon trading Tuesday (up about 0.7 percent over the last 20 minutes) as Bloomberg's Trish Regan just unleashed a tweet storm of comments coming from Icahn:

As of Icahn's latest 13F, filed on August 14 for the quarter ended June 30, the activist showed a nearly 52.8 million share stake in Apple, about 0.88 percent of the outstanding shares.

Icahn appears to be currently moving the price in Apple; however, this is likely to change over the next half hour as the Apple event will kick off at 1 p.m. EDT. Tune into Benzinga's Pro feed to see all of the updates from the event in real time!
