Icahn to BTV: Buffett is Too Easy on Some Companies

Carl Icahn spoke with Bloomberg Television anchor Stephanie Ruhle from the Robin Hood Investors Conference in New York today.

Icahn commented on EBay, saying "they got a jewel in PayPal. It's a jewel. It controls the online merchants. Not controls them, they get along and they have a great thing going with the two of them. That can't last forever and now somebody would love to buy them I would believe. And this is what they should be exploring. They waited too long to do the spinoff. Great thing to do and they should keep moving on that, but they should also explore a sale."

On Warren Buffett, Icahn said: "I think he's way too easy on some of these companies...I think that we have a major trouble in this country because many, many, many too many of our companies are badly run. Run by mediocre CEOs and should be made accountable...I think Warren Buffett should do more of this, yes."
