    I have never seen Intel move so little up or down in a day.

    It is as if the selling and buying are being carefully done to assure no movement.

    This of course before the next lift up past 30.

    • Pump and dump is on.

    • Check volume after the close. Almost 1/3 of todays volume traded. Big institutions are setting price all this week with big volumes afterhours.

      • I think the big institutional investors will find intel too good a return (long term) to ignore at this low price level. The 3% yeild, is much higher than what they can borrow money for. If you borrowed today, say $100m, would cost you in interest $1.9m for little iver a year hold. Buy $100m of Intel stock, (3,738,315 shares)and you could collect 5 x min $0.21 or near $3.9m. Sell 3.8m share Jan 13 call contracts at say $30 get you another $3.7m.

        In years time
        If stock price stays at $27.After paying interest of $1.9m, will leave you extra $5.8m.
        If stock price rises to $27.After paying interest of $1.9m, will leave you extra $15.8m.
        If stock drops. After paying interest of $1.9m, will need to be under $25.25 before it cost you money. Possibly under $23 before you get margin called.

        IMO, Downside risk is there, though the upside potential is far more attractive, especially given the Ultralow PE that Intel trades at.

    • meh, this is the calm before the storm. Volume was down 37% today, the trading range is tightening up.

      Look at the last 5 days - pretty boring if you ask me. That's a good sign. We have found a level of support; we'll base then off we go.

      Stock's going up to $100,000,000,030.42
