With INTC you buy below $20 after a slew of downgrades and a 10% market correction. You start selling gradually above $25 once upgrades start flowing in and guys on CNBC tell you it is a buy. It is futile to think about INTC as a 5-year holding investment.
Last thought on this, you could probably make money buying and selling on the way down to $20 a share, or maybe shorting it... Of course, it could always turn around and shoot the moon, in which case, yes now is the time to buy... I'm down almost $2000 on it right now though, so my advice is worth about as much as that hole in the wall.
