    WSJ/ Dow Jones better watch its own stoc

    It is nothing but a hatchet job.

    The WSJ guys have never understood it and never will.

    I have been reading the demise of INTC in the Journal for the last five years and if any one is in danger it is probably Dow Jones from Bloomberg and not INTC from its competitior.

    By the way there are lot of good links at the site

    • this is a warrant the option to buy a share of intel at 21 the current price reflects the difference between the cost of a real share and the 21 price for the share when the warrant was issued

    • ... when you bet on a NFL football game with a bookie, who do you think sells those "odd's" to the booky... NO ONE - HE/SHE SET'S THEIR OWN ODDS - THE TEAMS DO NOT SELL THE ODDS!... Neither do the "Companys'" play a roll in gambling on their stocks...

      Here's my analogy... You are my neighbor... you believe XYZ company's stock is going up... I believe it's going down... you and I place a $10 bet... if it goes up, you win, and I pay you $10... If it goes down, I win, and you pay me $10... XYZ COMPANY HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR SIDE BETS! That's the business of "futures options" or, "shorts"!

    • 21 dollars is not the strike price. The formula is $21+INTCW equals 1 share of Intel. It is more or less a poor man's way to own Intel shares. Don't mislead people now, Gersh! I used to think that you have useful facts in your posts. No longer!

    • Who do you think sold them to the bookie?

      Gersh

    • I'm not familiar with the symbol INTCW, but I'll take your word that it is an Intel call future's option symbol. The only thing I take issue with is "... that Intel sold..." If it's a futures option, THEN INTEL AS A CORPORATION DID NOT SELL IT! IT WAS SOLD BY A SIDE-MARKET BROKER (BOOKIE)! Plus, I don't understand the $21... and it's a call? Stock is currently $88+ (pre-split)... I can't relate to the numbers, either.

    • INTCW is a special call that Intel sold a while ago. The strike price is $21 with an experation date of 3/13/98.

      The main difference, that I can tell, is that the INTCW is just for one share while a regular call contract covers 100 shares.

      WOW .. How much money would Intel save on these if they let the stock drop say .. $20 .. betcha they'd save at least $100 .. maybe more!!

      Perhaps if they just did not do the stock buy back for a few days before 3/13 .. after all I think that it works out to be about 20% of the Intel stock purchases per day. Then a few days later make up the buy back .. the price of the stock goes back up ..<bingo> .. and Intel adds more profit to the next quarterly report.

      Seems like this is getting more and more like a gaming stock rather then a tech sector stock. Perhaps they should relocate the HQ to Nevada.

    • Do you have any idea what INTCW is?

    • Key financing activities in the first nine months of 1997 included the repurchase of 30.9 million shares of Common Stock for
      $2.4 billion as part of the Company's authorized stock repurchase program. The Company also sold 26.5 million put warrants,
      receiving proceeds of $190 million, while 29 million put warrants expired unexercised. Of the expired warrants, 20 million had been
      issued during the current nine month period and 16 million of these expired upon the Company's stock price reaching specified
      levels. From September 27, 1997 through November 6, 1997, the Company repurchased 5.1 million shares of its Common Stock at a cost
      of $402 million and sold 8.3 million put warrants. As of November 6, 1997, Intel had the potential obligation to repurchase
      14.8 million shares of Common Stock at an aggregate cost of $1.2 billion under outstanding put warrants. The exercise price of
      these outstanding warrants ranged from $69 to $95 per share, with an average exercise price of $80 per share. During the first
      quarter of 1997, the Company's Board of Directors approved an increase of up to 60 million additional shares in the Company's
      repurchase program. This increase brought the total authorization to 280 million shares. As of November 6, 1997, 59.4 million shares
      remained available for repurchase under the repurchase authorization, after allowing for the outstanding put warrants.

      Of course you may find that Intels filing with the Security and Exchange Commission to be invalid and/or incorrect information.

      Now as for "futures options" .. I'm not sure but I think that futures have something to do with stuff like sugar, coffee, oil etc.
