Icahn has long urged Apple to increase its capital return program, which the tech giant announced it would boost on Monday. Apple said it would expand its program to $200 billion from $130 billion previously.

Shares traded around $132 on Tuesday, a price-to-earnings ratio of about 16. Apple's market cap at the price sat at roughly $765 billion.

In February, Icahn said the stock should trade at $216 per share, which would value Apple at $1.3 trillion.
