    It is a vertical spread. they bought the $31 and sold the $30 to offset cost.
    It happens every earnings.

    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.

    The sand is more pleasing than your situation. 8-)

    The rest of the story .....

    Hillary did praise Robert Byrd 2010 at his funeral 20 years after Byrd denounce the Klan and apologized for his mistake. .

    "Byrd was not always a champion of liberal causes. He had come of age as a member of the #$%$ and cast a "no" vote on the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 that prohibited discrimination against African Americans and others. He later renounced his actions in both cases and called his membership in the #$%$ "the worst mistake of my life.""

    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.

    "You didn't agree with me. "
    Yes I did.

    You said that Hillary praised former Klan member Robert Byrd.
    I agree 100% with that statement.

    "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, ."

    "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.

    BTW, the Rasgon 53% success rating is for ALL stocks. Rasgon success rate for Intel is less than half that ... at 22% with a -19.6% return.

    Follow Rasgon Intel ratings and you would be -19.2% poorer.

    tipranks:
    "If you copied Stacy Rasgon's INTC ratings since 2009 and opened each position for the duration of
    1 Year, then 22% of your transactions would have been profitable with an average return of -19.6%."

    "S. Bernstein rarely wrong."

    TipRanks history of Rasgon recommendations indicates that he has 36 out of 68 successful ratings for a 53% rating.
    Rasgon is slightly better than a "coin flip" WITH an average return per recommendation of 3.2%.

    With an average return of 3.2% for Rasgon recommendations, you could have done better with a BUY-AND-HOLD Intel for the dividend yield.

    You just look for pairs of trades that match.

    The put volumes for the two strikes were:
    23,116 at $31 closed at 47/50 cents bid/ask
    22,882 at $30 closed at 22/23 cent bid/ask

    The big orders were probably 20,000 contracts at each strike and they paid about 25 cents for each share.

    "I proved you are a smarmy hypocrite many a time before, but you do it the best as you admit it with your very own screen name."

    You said that Hillary praised former Klan member Robert Byrd.
    I agree 100% with that statement.

    "Spinning"? 8-)
    I agreed with you or did you not notice?

    Hillary did praise Byrd at Byrd's funeral and ... Byrd was a member of the Klan when he was 23 Byrd frequently denounced the group after resigning in the 1970's. Byrd regularly apologized for what he called the biggest mistake of his life.

    BK - enough with this diversity garbage

    "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."

    "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.

    "Those options and grants are issued on the stock price for that day."
    There is no conspiracy about options that I can see. Could you explain further?

    Tech companies issue RSU options priced at $0.00.
    The DAY that the option vests, the stock COST BASIS is set at market price and the employee owes taxes on the change in BASIS from $0.00 to market price. Near 100% of employees have selected the option to sell shares to pay for taxes those profits. They have the option to pay taxes directly.

    IF management starts responding to Ashraf or others when they say something goofy, then those people looking for blog-fame will go wild. Responding does not make it better. Responding make it worse.

    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."

    "hey Alex, when I want your opinion I'll beat it outt ya."

    hey, marco, there are a number of online resources available to help you distinguish an "OPINION" from a "FACT". YouTube has some too, so reading level won't be a problem. It appears that you needs a refresher course on the difference between them.

    "I'll beat it outt ya"
    I will put on my shin guards and I will be just fine.
