Sends letter to Tim Cook urging him to boost his share repurchase plan to $150 billion

Screen Shot 2013-10-24 at 12.44.37 PMFORTUNE -- Tim Cook is getting the full Carl Icahn treatment.

In the corporate raider's latest missive he reiterates in public the points he presumably made to Cook in private: That Apple is 1) seriously undervalued, 2) holds far more cash than is healthy and 3) ought to boost its $60 billion share repurchase plan -- already a record -- to $150 billion.
