Carl Icahn’s 4 Biggest Dividend Stock Holdings

Super investors made a great return in the past and they got very rich. Not all started to make money with little stock trading. Some of them made big deals with huge loans. They took the risk and won the game.

Carl Icahn is such a person. He is an activist with $12 billion market value of his Icahn Capital Management vehicle. Herbalife, Transocean or Dell, Icahn is still named as investor who stirs up the pastry.

Today I look at the biggest dividend positions of Carl Icahn as of fourth quarter 2012. His full portfolio has only 15 companies, which is not much and looks very undiversified. Warren Buffett still has more stocks in his portfolio and he is also no big asset gatherer.

Icahn is no dividend lover; he has only four dividend stocks. His biggest dividend machine is his own property management company, Icahn Enterprises. IEP pays a 7.07 percent yield.
