You are right about Intel. the 15 cent gain was really pretty good. It was a good week for Intel. Even after going ex-dividend, which is usually a negative for trading, Intel is looking pretty strong. Intel could come back to test the 50 day moving average at $25.13 (rising) but that looks to be the bottom of any pullback. http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui?s=INTC
15 cent gain compares pretty good with ARMH $1 loss. 15 cent gain compares pretty good with SOXX 88 cent loss. 15 cent gain compares pretty good with TXN 57 cent loss. CSCO down 20 cents
MSFT was up 26 cents QCOM was up 67 cents. NVDA was up 8 cents.
AAPL .... league of its own ... up $33.
SOXX = semiconductor = loss so the Intel up was really great (as you say).
