    Intel's 3 cents interest-related profit

    Any thoughts on exactly where that 3 cents came from? It was the difference between missing expectations and beating them.

    I got the sense from reading a synopsis that it was not regular interest income. Wondering if the timing of reporting it was discretionary -- and being used as an accounting trick to generate buzz in a lackluster quarter.

    My instinct is to sell calls on what promises to be a very small early spike today.
