Icahn, who has demanded a $150 billion buyback publicly and privately to Apple chief executive Tim Cook since August, has said that Apple shares could trade at $700 with a larger stock buyback.
Apple shares were up 1.44 percent to trade at $528.16 at the close of trading on Thursday. That price is up about 10.8 percent from Sept. 30, when the stock closed at $476.75.
Based on that closing price and the stake revealed in the filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Icahn's stake in the company at the end of the third quarter was worth about $1.85 billion.
