    Rather than a "pump", it looks more like we are getting close enough to the ex-dividend date that there is some dividend arbitraging taking over. Notice how the stock is capped at the $37.00 STRIKE + 24 cent dividend.

    Russia is ROADKILL

    China offers Putin an escape hatch for helping to support the ruble. Part of the Chinese goal is advocate the use of the Chinese Yuan as a world currency along side the dollar. Things are usually much more complex than a simple answer.

    Bloomberg ....
    China Offers Russia Help With Currency Swap Suggestion
    Dec 22, 2014
    Two Chinese ministers offered support for Russia as President Vladimir Putin seeks to shore up the ruble without depleting foreign-exchange reserves.

    China will provide help if needed and is confident Russia can overcome its economic difficulties, Foreign Minister Wang Yi was cited as saying in Bangkok in a Dec. 20 report by Hong Kong-based Phoenix TV. Commerce Minister Gao Hucheng said expanding a currency swap between the two nations and making increased use of yuan for bilateral trade would have the greatest impact in aiding Russia, according to the broadcaster.

    If you are going to spam up board with your trades, could you please add the prices so we can determine your gains/losses?
    thanks
    Intel was trading at $36.62 when you posted this.

    Think about what Intel will be able to do with the transistor and power budget of a 100mm2 Bay Trail type device when fabricated at 10nm. At 10nm, both dimensions will be reduced 12/22 or 54%. You can put ABOUT 4 times the number of transistors. Intel can make substantial changes to all their CPU products too.

    "Funny stuff."
    Thanks

    "stalks this board and corrects people for posting things that aren't factual."

    This reads like a confession. Do you remember your post 6 hours ago when you posted "Change your name ti intel_pumper because you conveniently forgot to mention that these weren't an "additional" 9 million on top of what they normally ship".
    Yep, that was you stalking and erroneously correcting people 6 hours ago. Stalking the board and correcting people for messages that are not "complete enough" for you. Your confession is the first stage of your recovery.

    "in another breath, you post generalizations that are clearly not factual. "

    ..... and another of your confessions. Clear your conscious.

    "You're spiraling into the abyss old man, just like Wallis."

    If I ever get there, please introduce yourself.
    How many years were you there before Wallis arrived?

    "the title of the thread could EASILY be viewed by someone as a new venture by Intel."
    I guess there is "someone" ... somewhere who could make that mistake. They would not be making investment decisions for long if they did make that kind of mistake.

    "Your opinion is not the way everyone else in the world sees it, thankfully."
    Correct.
    Just nearly everyone. thankfully.

    "you conveniently forgot to mention that these weren't an "additional" 9 million on top of what they normally ship."
    Intel has historically only sold standard server chips in a limited number of off-the-shelf configurations .... "no substitutions allowed". The changes in the Intel off-the-shelf policy is the "big deal". It indicates the size of the transformation in the Intel production capabilities. Think about the problems customizing a 400mm die and getting the proper yields to maintain the margins Intel needs on server chips to average 60%. If Intel can produce 50% of their volumes as custom configurations, that provides a stronger moat against customizable competition.

    I seriously doubt that anyone thought these were 9 million new units. The NY Times would definitely not be the one to break such news.

    "something to think about. "
    .... or you could read the Intel 10q, where Intel discusses the currency exposure in detail.

    "I think INTC is down mostly to the very bad China news."
    Could be. It was also option expiration Friday so there was some arbitraging too.

    Page 13 of the Intel Q3/2014 SEC 10q
    "Currency Exchange Rate Risk

    We are exposed to currency exchange rate risk and generally hedge our exposures with currency forward contracts, currency interest rate swaps, or currency options. Substantially all of our revenue is transacted in U.S. dollars. However, a significant amount of our operating expenditures and capital purchases is incurred in or exposed to other currencies, primarily the euro, the Japanese yen, the Israeli shekel, and the Chinese yuan. We have established balance sheet and forecasted transaction currency risk management programs to protect against fluctuations in fair value and the volatility of the functional currency equivalent of future cash flows caused by changes in exchange rates. Our non-U.S.-dollar-denominated investments in debt instruments and loans receivable are generally hedged with offsetting currency forward contracts or currency interest rate swaps. We may also hedge currency risk arising from funding foreign currency denominated forecasted investments. These programs reduce, but do not eliminate, the impact of currency exchange movements."

    "Now it is really time to unload."
    Oh.
    When you said Intel would finish today at $33, you were just joking?

    When you said to unload at $25, you were just joking?
    When you said to unload at $27, you were just joking?
    When you said to unload at $28, you were just joking?
    When you said to unload at $30, you were just joking?
    When you said to unload at $33, you were just joking?
    When you said to unload at $34, you were just joking?
    When you said to unload at $35, you were just joking?

    As long as we close below $37.90...

    "lol.. may i suggest investopedia for you to publish your educational articles. U are awesome..."
    No, I am not awesome and I have made my share of mistakes.
    But spotting obviously bogus recommendations does not take someone "awesome".

    IMO, again ...
    There are cases to be made for shorting Intel, but closing below its 52-week high is not one of them.
    Shorting INTC may turn out to make some money, but it will not be related to your analysis.

    Cheers.

    "silly, but working right now... :) like your name suggests..."
    No it is not. You condition was a close under $37.90.
    Have we "closed below $37.90" yet?
    Seems like your condition is not effective until the close.

    8-)
    Notice that I did not say "shorting Intel" was silly,
    I said your short condition was silly, and it is.

    As long as INTC does not go up today by $1.00 and closes below its 52-week high of $37.90, .... it is a "short candidate"?
    Very silly.

    China about to throw our all U.S. Tech companies

    "Thats what we get for having a weak leader the past 6 years.."
    What difference would a "strong leader" make?
    Would China make a different decision?
    Why would China decide differently?

    I suspect that China is reacting to the NSA inserting "implants" into US manufactured hardware destined for China. China simply wants a secure supply of unbugged equipment.

    I am very, very interested in hearing your answer if you don't mind. My expectations are not high.

    "[Surely, you jest. "
    No.

    "You are going to try to make the case that it's a financial hardship to be a Congressman???"
    No. I am going to make a case that these are normal job related expenses. It has nothing to do with hardship.

    "These guys have given themselves pay raise after pay raise while cutting benefits for kids, the working stiff and veterans"
    I hold myself to a higher standard than those who voted against the veterans .... I prefer to take a higher goal.

    "Their benefits after leaving the job are enormous. "
    Probably. The benefits of running a visible fight is too, even if you lose. ..... watch Wendy Davis.

    "Do they need yet another subsidy? Hell, no"
    I think you have to reimburse job related expenses. I guess we just differ.
    I would like to remove as many barriers for the less wealthy to be able to run for office and be able to support a family. I do not want to make it more likely that only the wealthy run for office. That is too common today.

    Laughing at Wall Street

    "None of these will offset the positive impact that lower gas prices will have on US consumers."
    To be precise, you should say "COMPLETELY offset" because every "negative" has to "offset" a positive. When you subtract, your result is a smaller result. Then, what you are arguing about is which is bigger or smaller. At this point, no one really knows so you can declare victory because I cannot refute your opinion. Notice that I did not say "you are right".

    "The Republicans on Wall Street hate the idea of a tax cut that they doesn't go 97 percent to them."
    So you are saying the Republicans would HATE a tax cut where they only got 96%?
    Who is the person who is doing the calculations to confirm the percentage?

    NOTE: Before you go into monkey jumping mode 8-), I respect your right for you to have and express your opinions.

    "Unbelievable. Toss the money-grubbing bums out."
    If I travel for my job, they pay normal and reasonable expenses. Ground transportation is definitely normal. Car rental rates in Washington DC at a tier 1 rental company seem to be $35 in the middle of winter which is $1.050 for a 30-day month. They will also reimburse me for gasoline, parking, ....

    If Washington DC is anything like the NY area, the rental rates double in the summer ...but weekly or monthly rates can mitigate expenses.

    $1,000 per month seems about right and reasonable for transportation.
    This subsidy is not a big deal for the wealthy but it is a big deal for a citizen who gave up a job to become congressman.
