The bears are suggesting that much of he gains came from inventory build up.
The market climbs a "wall of worry" as investors who "did not believe" become believers in a bright future and commit money .... with the final capitulation being the small, negative investors.
I like some bad news. It means their is more "worry to climb". 8-)
It looks like the market moved Intel past the $34.28 gravity point into the next higher obit ($34.50).
I doubt that GS has much at risk and Covello will probably come out unscathed. The biggest holders of Intel short vehicles that I could see were the hedge funds who were PUT option holders. The biggest true short was likely the option market maker who was 100% hedged with covered calls. The other source of shorts was likely the convertible bond holders.
IMO, shorts ... no big deal.
Thanks for pointing this out. I visit the IR page. It does not seem like they have these tied into their alerts.

No one gives a krap about tablets anymore. Its a shrinking commoditized market.
ARM always thought the low-end of the mobility market was safe. With the high-end shrinking, Intel hitting them on the low-end and their fabrication fading, ARM faces a troubled and uncertain future.
The company is trying to bring the cost of smartphones down to as little as $50.
SINGAPORE-Poke around an industrial suburb here and you might stumble across a building whose signage tells you it belongs to a German company named Infineon. But back in 2011, Intel purchased the wireless portion of this business and renamed it Intel Mobile Communications.
Outside, the place retains the Infineon branding, as the other parts of the company still exist, but depending on the floor you visit, it's definitely Intel inside. This Singapore office is the home of SoFIA -- short for "Smart or Feature phone with Intel Architecture" -- a technology that holds the key to Intel's future as a force in the mobile world.
Announced last December, SoFIA is a new mobile chip that's set to debut at the end of this year. Designed for budget smartphones, SoFIA is set to give Qualcomm and Mediatek a run for their money in this rapidly growing part of the market.
Intel has packed a dual-core Atom Silvermont processor into a 28nm system-on-chip (SoC) design that also crams in a 3G modem. An LTE 4G quad-core version will appear at a later stage. Intel declined to reveal more about performance at this point, saying only it expects it to be on par with current offerings from its competitors.
"Dual-core" should mean basic smartphone functionality and a reasonable user experience, but Intel is surprisingly bullish on how much a phone powered by SoFIA will cost. A spokesperson told CNET that "Intel's SoFIA could pave the way for smartphones costing as little as $50 in Indonesia and other emerging markets."
Intel is apparently still in discussion with its phone-making customers and declined to reveal any names. We do know that earlier this year at MWC, Intel announced agreements with Lenovo, Dell, and Foxconn, while Asus is already churning out Intel-powered phones and tablets. It's no great leap to guess where we can expect the first SoFIA-powered handsets to come from.
You must be circumcised - I mean mentally LOL BUUUUUUURPPPPPPPPPP
The only way to deal with a P. O. $. like that is IGNORE. I have them all on IGNORE. Life is beautiful...I just collect my dividends and watch my gains. I also ignore "experts" like Asraf and Nenni. They have proven their worth by their misguided writings. Anyone who listens to these fools will miss out on the best investment on the market.
Humpty has now given up all of its bump on earnings and a bit more.
Wall Street continues to beat down individually every tech stock possible. And is still working on trying to take markets down en masse. There are already some pretty good bargains out there and if the trend continues there will be more. Maybe even enough that the pinhead hedge funds can make money.
You're as clueless about who I am as you were about how much of a bargain Intel was in the $20's. You obviously have nothing of value to offer to this board. So do yourself and everyone here a favor and disappear from this board. Didn't know exactly who you were, but you seem to act more and more like the original yet very pathetic Lucy who more recently may be using the ID's pumperkryptonite and itakebackmyapology. Could even be acting like the psycho marcopubio. Get a life already and leave this board. We are too busy making money. Your posts are not powerful enough to frustrate the longs on this board, especially when our gains have reached such new heights.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Yeah, I think IDF could provide a nice bump in September and be a nice lead in to earnings in October.
Too bad you missed the Intel train ...BURP
Intel tight lipped about 10nm but I was told all locked in already....
Pacific Crest Conference - 8/11/2014
Intel Developer Forum - 9/9/2014
Intel Earnings Call - 10/14/2014
Intel Investor Meeting - 11/20/2014
With recent activity on stock, looks like the earnings call could be the biggest catalyst.
The investor meeting could be very big also.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
More server needs for sure.
TV advertising may not help Intel much, but Internet based advertising surely does.
Looks like Intel has a very bright future.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Poor Waldo, twtr is still down 25.00 from the highs hit earlier this year, but what the heck, on a red day for INTC, he has to use any excuse he can in his endless parade of pumping.
