- Appearing on CNBC following David Tepper ("pretty cautious, not downright bearish"), Carl Icahn says a lot of companies are "way overvalued."

- Herbalife (NYSE:HLF): "I don't understand why there's a 25M share short position ... Could be the mother of all short squeezes."

- Deason, who owns a 6.1% stake in XRX, claims the company would exchange $300M worth of preferred shares he owns for a stake in the legacy copier and printer business instead of in Conduent, which he says is the faster growing business.
- XRX says the lawsuit is without merit, and expects to complete the planned split on schedule.
- XRX’s biggest institutional investor is Carl Icahn's hedge fund which held a nearly 10% stake as of June 30 and has supported the company's break-up plan.

Nevertheless, the team at JPMorgan has identified 22 U.S. stocks with the highest U.K. exposure as a percent of revenue. These names would thus theoretically benefit from a "Remain" vote.
