Real-Time Ticker: StockTwits traders pointing out diminishing effect of Icahn tweets on $AAPL

The Icahn effect is losing its luster. Since Carl Icahn exploded on the social media scene with his Apple “tweet heard ’round the world” in 2013, the follow-on effect of each successful “announcement” seems to be further muted. It was fun while it lasted…

Icahn is at it again. $AAPL up 1% after trio of @Carl_C_Icahn tweets about adding to his position. But he still wants bigger buyback.

The stock has moved higher since his tweet, but the demanding crowd is underwhelmed:

What’s more interesting than the @Carl_C_Icahn $AAPL tweet, is how little he moves the share. Law of diminishing returns on his pumps.

We’ll all be watching to see what happens next. Follow the $AAPL stream on StockTwits for real-time sentiment and analysis as the story unfolds.
