The only way to make money in this market is to buy on dips when analysts open their mouths to the negative. if you believe the world will stop using chips in the next few years its a good time to get out of the chip sector. But if you believe that chip usage will continue, then now is the time to buy. I figure if I put $5000 in a cd, I get .5% for 18 months. I rather put it in intel with a dividend, and try to catch a falling knife, then get .5%.
