Carl Icahn is an American business magnate and legendary corporate raider. He began his career on Wall Street in 1961. In 2007, he founded Icahn Capital LP, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Icahn Enterprises L.P. Carl Icahn recently announced that he will be returning $1.76 Billion back to his investors. He will continue investing his own money. He is an excellent insider to imitate because his moves are usually bigger than an average hedge fund’s and he has to report them more promptly on 13D forms because he usually takes activist positions.

According to Yahoo! Finance, Navistar International Corporation engages in manufacturing and selling “commercial and military trucks, buses, diesel engines, recreational vehicles, and chassis”. It operates in Truck segment, Engine segment, Parts segment, and Financial Services segment. The company mainly markets its products through dealers and distributors in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, and India.
