Carl Icahn on Twitter: "Just bought $500 mln more $AAPL shares. My buying seems to be going neck-and-neck with Apple's buyback program, but hope they win that race."

Following two $500M purchases last week, Icahn's Apple (AAPL -7.2%) stake had risen to $3.6B. After taking today's selloff into account, his stake is now likely in the $4B range.

Apple's shares haven't received much of a lift from Icahn's latest disclosure.
