Apple CEO Tim Cook is expected to meet with billionaire investor Carl Icahn on Monday, and it's widely speculated that Icahn may push for a bigger buyback.
During the last 18 months Apple has been active when it comes to returning cash to shareholders. In April, the company announced a massive stock buyback program of $60 billion before the end of 2015 and by June Apple had already bought $16 billion worth of its stock.

But Apple's move to increase shareholder value didn't seem to satisfy investors. Rather, based on its stock performance they appear to have an appetite for even larger returns, which is where Icahn comes in.
Icahn, who has taken a large stake in Apple, posted a tweet in August about pushing Apple to increase its stock buyback. He also said that Cook was on board with the idea and mentioned a planned September dinner with Cook to discuss the matter. The get-together is expected to happen in New York on Monday evening.
