SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Carl Icahn isn't the only billionaire investor with an appetite for Apple's stock.
Financier George Soros more than doubled his stake in the iPhone and iPad maker in recent months, according to regulatory documents filed Wednesday.
Soros' fund held 66,800 shares of Apple Inc. stock at the end of June, up from 26,800 shares in March.
Apple's stock finished Wednesday at $498.50, its highest closing price since Jan. 23. At that price, Soros' holdings are currently worth about $33 million.
Apple's shares remain nearly 30 percent below their peak of $705.07 reached nearly 11 months ago. Despite that drop, Apple remains the world's most valuable company with a market value of more than $450 billion.
Soros' disclosure about his increased interest in Apple came a day after Icahn took to his Twitter account to announce he has built a large stake in the Cupertino, Calif., company, too.
Icahn hasn't yet specified how much Apple stock he owns, but he has already urged Apple CEO Tim Cook to increase the amount of money that the company is spending to buy back its stock. Apple so far has pledged to spend $60 billion buying back its stock by end of April.
Unlike Icahn, Soros hasn't indicated that he intends to pressure Apple to do things differently.
