"Yer buddy marco saw it coming, ..."
.... also known as a variation of the "perfect prediction scam".
Intel was down 2 cents.
Is "2 cents" huge for you?
If you think 2 cents is huge, that will go a long way to understanding your postings.
INTC unchanged from yesterday's close at $34.00 strike + dividend.
Put/call ratio finished today at 0.70 which is slightly elevated from the traditional 0.50 "normal" range.
It sure looks like dividend arbitraging influences the stock trading quite a bit. I just wish I had better visibility into the "how". Low option volume and no 10k+ strike trades.
Smith option exercise and sold. No programmed trade.
Kilroy is recovering from cancer and has just returned to a "staff" position. .
James and Holt were SEC Rule 10b5-1(c) programmed sells.
Yoffie donated shares to Harvard.
I bet they wished they had not sold the shares in January at $27.
Stacy Smith appeared to exercise options and sell his 614,432 shares. He still has 186,320 shares plus any other options.
Thomas Kilroy has cancer and appears to be exercising all his options, sold 349,595 shares.
Renee James was an automatic sell SEC Rule 10b5-1(c).program set up in January 2014.
William Holt same as James. SEC Rule 10b5-1(c).program set up in April 25, 2013.
David Yoffie is a Director and donated 20,000 shares to to Harvard Business School.

OT ..... The ID creation date is tough to determine. Yahoo sets the created since date for these message boards to the oldest message you have posted. You can test this by REMOVING your oldest message and watching your MEMBER SINCE date change. If you remove ALL your messages, you are not created yet .... 8-)
Short interest was released yesterday and it continued to drop. Short interest dropped to 161m shares from the previous period 174m shares. They closed about 1m shares per trading day. Assuming 22 trading days per month and the period covered 1/2 month.

The 5 Core M 5Y10 processors are both 14nm and are Broadwell. These 5 CPU are just the embedded mobile SKU. The 2015 versions are the desktop versions of Broadwell. It appears to me like Intel is responding to "Intel is not in mobile" first by taking maximum advantage of the 14nm low power. Low power makes more sense in mobile.

True, unless they followed your MAY 22nd advice and sold at $26. Seems like your "better sell now" advice is pretty constant.
June 12 *** INTC could drop 25% *** EU decision ***
by marcopubio • May 22, 2014 4:34 PM
Sell all your INTC now, before the HUGE plunge back to $20.
marco the great :-) June 12 2014 EU slaps INTC with a HUGE fine for monopoly practices. INTC may need to suspend the dividend to pay the fine. Then, copious amounts of class action suits could BK INTC, maybe worser, who knows.
True, unless they followed your Jul 12th advice and sold at $31.
Alien technology company to bury INTC ...learn why
by marcopubio • Jul 12, 2014 12:37 AM
We just learned that a very advanced computer chip-based on quantum entanglement- is being developed by an INTC competitor. Patent applications are pouring in which will make it impossible for INTC to breech. The super advanced chip design was recovered from a downed alien space craft a couple or three years ago. The company developing this advanced technology cannot be disclosed at this time- Yinz would have to have at least a 16 level Eyes only clearance- but, I can tell yaz that very soon INTC's entire array of new and future chips will be utterly WORTHLESS!
marco the genius : - ) Don't let INTC make yer portfolio obsolete, sell this POS immediately, if not sooner.
Intel also has very good MCM packaging capability. I am surprised that they don't do something with an MCM.
Unlikely to be over.
Intel likely contracted with an agent to buy back shares. With Lehman, the contract was for the average volume weighted price. IF they went with an agent and structured it for average volume pricing then .... you want to think like that buyer.
If that buyer thinks the price is going higher, they will buy. If they think the share price is going lower, they will hold off until the price drops. That buyer makes more money when they buy more shares below the average weighted price.
Seems like China is trying to lower the cost of their 4G build out by trimming the QCOM licensing fees on their domestic suppliers.

"Owners of Intel may want to consider a possible hedge in the event a pullback occurs. Look for confirmation in the next few trading days." ... from the article ...
The PUT/CALL ratio for the last 2 days has been above 1.0 when the typical value is usually around 0.5. There are usually twice the calls purchased as puts. Yesterday, I noticed put volumes at the $34.00 and $34.50. Since Intel was weaker than the market for most of the day, I assume that they were put buyers.
Right now, the P/C ratio is 1.2 and dropping like yesterday. Option volume seems light also. The big put volume strikes are 1500 Friday $34.00 puts and Aug 16th $34.50 puts 2300. That is not enough for hedging, for those who would hedge.
I sold my INTC trading position (about 25% of holding) at $33.33, expecting INTC to bounce off $30. If INTC drops toward its 50-day average, the average will be in the $30 area about the time INTC gets there.
I would like to be wrong, but I did not expect INTC to breach $30 so convincingly nor to punch through to its current level. If Intel continues up, I am long. If Intel pulls back to the 50-day, I will start selling puts again.
Market seemed to be responding to restatement of extremely high May housing numbers and an 8.1% lower June number than the higher May number.
I would expect the buyers included index ETF, sector ETF, value ETF, mutual funds for index, value and sector. When the 14nm production kicks into full gear, the Intel margins should expand and lower power consumption should expand the TAM and revenues. .
Intel has been up more than down all year. What are you talking about.

SP500 up 2%
