    Issa Sought ‘Yes’ on Loan Request
    By Eugene Kiely
    Posted on October 10, 2011
    Rep. Darrell Issa, who has accused the administration of “political interference” to benefit a solar energy company, has falsely claimed that a letter he wrote to the Energy Department on behalf of a California car maker merely requested a decision — “yes or no” — on the company’s loan application. In fact, the California Republican wrote to “express support” for the company’s loan to develop an electric car. He wrote that approval of the loan would “greatly assist a leading developer of electric vehicles in my district” and “promote domestic job creation throughout California as well as in other states.”

    "If you're a liberal liar, Alexander Dumb has no issues with you[sic]"
    I must really upset you.
    Chuckle.

    I go to FactCheck quite frequently and I respect the work they do. They seem honest and thorough in their responses. Using them as a model for your behavior would be an improvement.

    "LOL. Just look at his posting history, making fun of Fox News, etc..."
    Fox News is funny. 8-)
    You are the one that drags the conversation into the "political".. The name calling is easier for you.

    "He uses several aliases here to push his LIberal agenda."
    ... .and my "Liberal agenda" is .... ??? That you do not even bother with discussion ... just sink to sputtering insults? 8-) Seems accurate to me.

    "But don't worry, Alexander Dumb is just a crusty old man that's irrelevant."
    "Irrelevant"? Hmmm. You sure waste lots of your time on "irrelevant".
    Chuckle.

    "You're a piece of garbage, and anybody can see it. You and Wallisweaver make fun of behavior that you exhibit."
    Chuckle. You don't even bother with any dialog before you start sputtering. You sink to the ad hominem attacks immediately..
    I point out what __ I __ think is incorrect, misleading facts, .... I don't bother too much with the "children arguing in the back seat". That is a waste of time. You may think I hold an extreme view but that is a product of your point of reference.
    You will have a hard time finding any message where I make a personal attack, like you just did. "Anybody can see" the behavior that both you and I have displayed and come to a correct conclusion.

    "Hypocrisy is UGLY."
    Yes. Readers will judge correctly for themselves.

    "Again, Dumb-A is the perfect name for you."
    Again, thank you.
    I wanted to make it REAL EASY for those of limited vocabularies. 8-)

    "At least you were honest about something."
    Hmmm. Thank you.
    I will be sure to return the complement when appropriate.

    I don't have you on ignore. I answered your question, but you did not like the answer.
    I happen to agree with the Houston TX, Grand Jury that indicated that religious extremists had manufactured the claim.

    "In a surprise move disclosed on Monday, a grand jury in Harris County not only cleared Planned Parenthood's Gulf Coast affiliate but also indicted the two anti-abortion activists, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, who had prompted the probe in the first place.

    They have both been charged with using fake driver's licenses and Daleiden for violating Texas' prohibition on the purchase and sale of human organs - the same law he accused Planned Parenthood of breaking - when he sent an email to Planned Parenthood seeking to buy fetal tissue. Their lawyers say they have done nothing wrong."

    "Cant believe this guy is spouting off political correctness garbage while Intel is getting attacked by ARM on all fronts including manufacturing. "

    Diversity has nothing to do with "political correctness". Political correctness is the extreme avoidance of offensive language. It appears to me that BK is using diversity as a "keystone habit" to gain the focused attention of the employees and do exactly what you are asking for.

    If you are frustrated with the stock price, then it is pretty easy to perform a screen and the analysis to find a company and stock that better suits your goals.

    P.C.
    "the avoidance, often considered as taken to extremes, of forms of expression or action that are perceived to exclude, marginalize, or insult groups of people who are socially disadvantaged or discriminated against."

    "I mean what possible announcement could bring that much movement that quickly? :)"

    There was an identical 5,000 contract $35 INTC PUT options for the same expiration. They were linked. It WAS NOT a call purchase for an expected $35+ close.

    Did they

    Covello was at $16 with a sell rating. If he moved his price target to $31, without an upgrade to neutral, I would not be able to understand his reasoning. 8-)

    All he had to do was move the PT higher and say "kept the same" and no one would catch it.

    "Last I heard of Goldman and James Covello was a Sell rating with $25 as a price target."

    This is what I think it is. There were several upgrade/downgrades/price-target changes that seemed to get mushed together and misquoted. I saw one where upgraded to neutral and lowered the price target from $31 to $25.

    Covello seems to phrase any changes to Intel as a negative. It is unclear what the GS price target currently is.

    American Banking News: yesterday
    "Intel Co. was upgraded by research analysts at Goldman Sachs from a “sell” rating to a “neutral” rating in a research report issued on Tuesday, The Fly reports. The firm presently has a $31.00 price objective on the chip maker’s stock. Goldman Sachs’ price objective points to a potential upside of 4.03% from the company’s previous close.
    "
    Bidness, Etc: yesterday
    Limited downside risk below $25
    "Analysts at Goldman Sachs have upgraded Intel from Sell to Neutral, as they believe that the stock has limited downside at current levels. The research firm has also made a downward revision in its price target from $31 to $25, highlighting weak trends in the PC business. In 2015, Intel Corporation acquired programmable chipmaker Altera Corporation in the last quarter in an effort to diversify its product portfolio, ."

    "you don't call him out, let's be realistic. If WW were insulting you as he does some other members of this board (such as Lucy, Angry Inch, etc.), ?"

    He has insulted me many times but that has typically been because he misunderstood what I said. I explained my position in painful detail which, for example, led to his quote to me that is repeatedly used to club him.

    "would you be so keen to stay quiet in the face of blatant hypocrisy and unethical stock pumping"

    Am I "keen to stay quiet in the face of blatant hypocrisy and unethical stock pumping" AND stock bashing?
    Yep.
    You seem to be able to hold up the bashing side quite nicely with both your new and old ID's.

    "You don't give WW any grief when he posts about Micron, Angry Inch, ARMH, AAPL, etc"

    True.
    That is because everyone else is doing a stellar job!!!

    " Fair is fair, right?"

    I guess that would go both ways .... correct? 8-)

    "but if you ask him what he thinks about Liberals selling dead baby parts to buy Lambroghini's and other material things......he puts his head in the sand. "

    Not really. I just let a Houston, TX Grand Jury speak for me.

    A conservative Houston, TX Grand Jury,
    with the Planned Parenthood "baby parts" case argued by a conservative pro-life District Attorney,
    under a conservative pro-life Texas state Attorney General,
    with a conservative pro-life Texas governor,
    cleared Planned Parenthood of all charges BUT the Texas Grand Jury issued Felony charges against the Plaintiffs for trying to buy baby parts and fraud.

    "In a surprise move disclosed on Monday, a grand jury in Harris County not only cleared Planned Parenthood's Gulf Coast affiliate but also indicted the two anti-abortion activists, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, who had prompted the probe in the first place.

    They have both been charged with using fake driver's licenses and Daleiden for violating Texas' prohibition on the purchase and sale of human organs - the same law he accused Planned Parenthood of breaking - when he sent an email to Planned Parenthood seeking to buy fetal tissue. Their lawyers say they have done nothing wrong."

    "Bottom line is that folks only see what he writes, not the story behind it"
    That is always true.

    " Since Intel PR is non-existent as far as I can tell, all the negative #$%$ that comes out is never refuted."
    I don't remember that many companies publicly refuting stuff like this. Do you have an example of what you were thinking about here?

    "I'm interested in the underlying business for sure, but I also want the stock price to rise sometime in my lifetime"
    The main problem here is an issue of revenues and profits per share growth is low. Intel has had a PE ratio in the 10 to 12 range for many, many years.

    "Good PR is a necessary factor in that happening"
    I agree. I just don't view Ashraf as a "PR problem". I DO NOT want Intel to validate and enhance his stature by responding to what he says. If Intel responded to that junk, it would just encourage more of the same. "A lie can travel halfway around the world before the truth can get its boots on"

  • alexander.dumbass alexander.dumbass Jan 27, 2016 10:43 AM Flag

    "let's see if he can keep it balanced from this point on."
    It looks to me to be the same specious junk he has been writing for the last year. He tosses the same words into a blender and pours out a "glass full of clicks".

    Ashraf determined the Intel 14nm yield by the availability of chips like the 6700k Skylake which require a new motherboard to work. There was "no availability" because their was "no demand" for the CPU ... no shortage. There was "no demand" because people were buying the CPU+motherboard combos at a discounted price and had no need for a standalone CPU that did not fit any of their sockets.

    Ashraf used broken logic to arrive at a 'shortage because of low yield" conclusion.
    His "the yield problem is fixed" conclusion is just as flawed.
    Just because he arrived at the correct answer "no problem with 14nm" does not mean that the article was good.

    The problem was only on the NE Patriot side of the AFC championship game. The problem was traced back to the NE Patriot equipment staff who inserted football needles into the audio ports which shorted out the battery. Once the MSFT tech staff confiscated the needles, the Surface tablets worked perfectly.

    Intel is a member of 200+ index and the SOXX and SMH are tiny compared to others. MU and XLNX are both up 8%. They are both members of SOXX and are pulling it up. All the other indices that Intel is part of are up fractions ... like Intel.

    Intel is tracking the market.

    3D XPoint moves from lab to fab

    alexander.dumbass alexander.dumbass Jan 19, 2016 11:44 AM Flag

    "The real question is when will we see bottom line results from this?"

    My guess would be revenues would start in 2H/2016 and significant in 2017.

    3DXP can be substituted for NAND or DRAM devices. Seems to me there are several possible targets.

    3DXP SSD NAND: seems like pricing would make this an unattractive first target.

    MCM Mobile memory: putting it on a mobile package replacing all the DRAM circuitry is a possibility, but unlikely. Intel can value price higher due to component reduction, lower power consumption and instant on/off.

    Xeon Servers: It is targeted at Purley which ships this year. High end servers will want 3DXP for increased memory space.

    "Many on Wall Street think that the company’s new chip, which is a collaboration with Micron Technology, called the 3D XPoint could be primarily In-Memory compute in servers, and its launch should coincide with Intel’s Purley platform server launch in 2016"

    SkyLake support the CLFLUSHOPT/SFENCE instructions which are designed for NVM memory and support 3DXP. DIMM form factor version could be sold today if available.

    Xeon PHI might be the first CPU to ship with 3DXP in a multi-chip package MCM. There are some rumors that a PHI workstation might ship in November this year.

    " I remember when Obama said he wanted higher gas prices to persuade everyone to consume less fossil fuels."

    I tend to go to Google to get more information on a topic. When FactCheck shows up in the top matches, I tend to look at FactCheck since they have gathered multiple sources and references in one place. The gas price comment seems to be a product of the Mitt Romney Presidential 2008 campaign.

    "Fact is oil prices are lower because Saudis are trying to over produce to wreck US and Russian oil producers."

    I think you are correct that marginal US shale producers are one target but I think Shia Iran is their real target.
