If you think that INTC is not going to get
fucked, think again. AMD has killed your prices of
CELERON chips -40%!!!!! What the hell do you think is
going to happen to the prices of the PIII when the AMD
K6-3 and K7 come out which are on schedule!!! INTC is
going to have to slash prices!!! INTC has NEVER had
competition!!! Now it does and all they can do is compete at the
price level, as their chips are no different than that
of AMD. People do not give a shit if the computer
SAYS INTEL INSIDE. All they care about is price
performance! So how is INTC going to make money???? Can anyone
of you INTC fans tell me??? Please tell me. I would
love some responses!
Please don't call Kurlak a Putz, because:
1) it means 'penis' in Yiddish.
2) it is
offensive to many people.
3) it performs a useful
function, unlike Kurlak.
[Sorry for breaking my own
rule, and using that word. But call him something else.
Jerk seems to fit. Idiot is OK,
What is REALLY amazing is that Intel's has got
its act together and is STILL making profit on
Celeron's. The more they make, the more they can afford to
K63 ( id it ever makes it into a
system you can buy ) is not even a match for Celeron. It
will have to undersell Celerons.
K7 "might" be
able to go against Coppermine, but I've read there may
be some serious design issues that were not
carefully thought out. AMD might beat INTC into the fab on
this one, but INTC will
remain the speed leader
throughout the Millenium.
I think you might be right
about Intel Inside. It may not make a difference to the
bottom end systems. Except when the consumer is faced
with choosing between an AMD system for $1250 versus a
INTC system for $1100. Check out how Compaq is trying
like mad to get rid of its high priced AMD
I won't do you the favor of showing you how to
generate and increase profits.
You should have
learned that in BUS101.
merrill will soon realize that tom kurlak - wants
to be known as "tomtom" (his showbiz name) or
"shi*head" (as the street knows him"- as he beats his drum
trying to keep his name infront of the market.
hasn't been correct for the last year or so, stock drops
- his family makes money on their puts - stock
drops and he buys calls.
He comments INTC
his puts triple in
now he buys 2 extra houses and pays back his
He does this each quarter
soon he will be fired,
because client for ML, won't pay anymore to loose money
to him, as everybody goes direct via internet
So the problem will solve, and INTC will prove
itself, don't worry INTC worth 250$/share
I am puzzled as to why there are still so many
people listen to Kurlack. The lemmings that invest their
money based on his recommendations lost money:
Recommended sell when INTC @65 and it went up tp 140+
missed the opportunity to more than double the
2 At 143 11/16, he upgraded the stock to strong
buy, and the stock started to go down
-- Lost 10%
when they sold today after his
Many people got burned twice, but if they are stupid
enough and sold today, it would be a "three strike and
out" and should consider putting money in bank CDs.
.....look thru history,,,,look a the dja
graphs,,,,,,they all have peak and valleys......but if u step
back,,,,the general trend is upwards......
all this bs as buying opportunities....afterall when
everyone is heading for the exit ,,,,,,i like to pick and
choose my next investment vehicle,,,,,
think,,,,orcl.....i got it for 22$......just because ellison missed
earnings by a few cents(??).....if i would have waited a
few days,,,,i could have bought it for 18.5$ like my
sooooo......i actually look forward to corrections after a nice
healthy run,,,,,,so i can choose more stocks,,,,,,i treat
these corrections like a president's sale on
It really bothers me what has caused the market
or the NASDAQ to make such an adjustment today. The
only things I can find is that Kurlack cut the earning
estimate for Intel siting the price war and Wall Street is
worry about the interest rate hike bias. To me, these
are bunch of bulls shit news released by someone
whose intension is to create market volatility and
benefit from it.
The Intel investor relationship
guy (forgot his name) issued his comments during a
conference about lower earning estimate compared to the last
quarter (seasonal factors) but expects a very good
quarter. Do I believe news issued from Intel or do I
believe Mr Kurlak who's been wrong all these time. I find
it very interesting that he released the combined
news cutting INtel estimate and downgrading AMD at the
time. He is trying to justify the estimate cut by
citing the price war. To me, he is using AMD as a
scapegoat to amplify the effect of the INtel estimate cut
by downgrading AMD at the same time. Beside, it's a
cut of only 3.3% and what does that tell you?
Everybody can make their own decision.
hike? GIve me a break! It's not even realistic in the
near term if you look at the ripple effects on Brazil
if Greenspan hike the rate. So much bull and people
still fell for it.
I will try to get some LEAPS
on Intel tomorrow! (thinking on the same wavelength
of that AxxhXXX!)
...i disagree with your kurlack
assessment......personally i think he's STUPID!!.......but u maybe
as for the amd-intc interplay your scenario echos my
wifes 1st cousins story......by the way,,,,he was an
ex-production manager for intc ( he's now retired),,,,,no
intc needs amd,,,,,,for anti trusts reasons, just like
u said......and amd always fucks up,,,,,,even 1st
cous knew that (which means all of intc management
knows too)......i asked 1st cous what intc intends to
do with amd eating up the low end,,,,,,,,he just
shrugged and stated that its the high end where the real
profit margins are...
the low end has a limited
future ,,,,in terms of margins.....and
its a known
fact that when merced comes out, basically the server
market has thrown in the towel to intc,,,,,,merced will
dominate based on its potential,,,,but more so,,,,,its
relative low cost.....
he also stated that intc is
still a good investment (all his options are
here),,,,but dont expect intc to grow as rapidly as it once
......keep the faith,,,,,,,,,intel inside
I have only posted a few messages to the board.
Nevertheless, Kurlak is such a vial, putz that shoots from the
hip. He must have the IQ of a tree stump..well that's
insulting to tree stumps. Only Kurlak will tell you to
avoid INTC when it was down in the 80's..what a
putz..Edelstone was telling people to double down and get
more..someone should teach Kurlak how to review a company.
