Your original post was about Thomas Sowell.
Your Thomas Sowell statement was wrong.
If you want to point out where my reply was wrong, I will apologize.
Since you don't want to reply, then I will take that as your confession.

Another SMACK for Obomba
Thomas Sowell, African American, Senior Fellow at Hoover Institute, Stanford University
"Those people who want Hillary Clinton to be our first female elected Pres, seemed to have learned absolutely nothing from the current disaster of choosing a Pres on the basis of demographics and symbolism"
Liberals who disagree with his honest opinion, must be racists. Checkmate.
Were you bashing? Hmmm. How so? Just "how" were you "bashing"?????
Seemed like you were just making an incorrect political statement.
"Funny how ..." you changed the subject and resorted to angry name calling rather than correct my interpretation of the Thomas Sewell quote. If what I said was factually incorrect, I will apologize to you for my error.
"your opinion is as worthless as "
Thomas Sowell calls himself a conservative libertarian. That is not my opinion. That is his.
Those who disagree with Thomas Sowell must not be a conservative libertarian. That is not my opinion. Those who disagree with a conservative libertarian are not conservative libertarians. It has nothing to do with race.
Your "must be a racist" statement is not only wrong but is silly. Accuracy should be as important to you as insulting others.
Thomas Sowell is a conservative libertarian. Anyone who disagrees with his opinion must not be a conservative libertarian. Not quite checkmate. More of a "distortion".
Like James Covello's $18?
James and Holt have been regular sellers.
James programmed sell set up in January:

" why, you must have an IQ in the upper 40's."
...... or an internet connection baud rate in the upper 40's. Maybe it just takes a long time for pages to download.
AMD LOSS of $0.06 per share.
AMD down 15% in AH from a close of $4.57 to $3.90.
$6.00 is probably postponed.
"Vlad's goal, he wants a war to justify controlling Ukraine, its landmass, its resources and people"
IMO, he is looking for a secure land route to the Crimean naval bases.
The Friday $34 and $34.50 calls have a BID/ASK SIZE of 400/4000 with an OI of 7k. Seems like CALL selling at $34 and $34.50.
The SEP $36 has BID/ASK SIZE of 1,750/50 .... BUYING at 30 cents. Volume is up to 36.9k now.
I think the option trading is one of the things that pins the trading price to $34.
I agree with mas. The day after a STUNNING $3 pop. All of the technical indicators have to be reestablished after sentiment changing news. Lots of churning for the next week or so. Next milestone will be next week (probably Wednesday) when Intel announces dividend.
Overall, it looks like option positions being adjusted following earnings and before Friday expiration. Option closing and rolling for those who want to keep their positions. In general, the action by the increased option market maker activity should increase the "gravity" of strike/dividend price points.
There should be heavy volumes for awhile. All those who sold covered calls are rather irritated that the call holders took the profits from the stock pop. There will be roll ups and you are starting to see that with JAN 2016 CALL. They opened up the $45 strike today and there is solid activity at the $35/$40/$5 strikes (1000 contracts).
Good SEP activity. $34 put buying ...8k contracts
9k CALL $34 call contracts possibly mated with the PUTS for a combo trade ... strangle.
22k $36 calls appear to be buying too.
... AND ... Friday options ...
5k $35 CALLS
27k $34 CALLS
I don't expect any dividend action, but Stacy Smith said that Intel priorities were:
1. invest in the business FIRST
2. generate shareholder return through the dividend
3. and then to return cash to shareholders via stock repurchases.
Since the buyback was so aggressive, it might imply the BOD are expected to add to the dividend too.
"Our capital allocation philosophy is to first invest in our business, then generate shareholder return through our dividend and then to return cash to shareholders via stock repurchases. Our business generates healthy free cash flow through economic cycles but as a result of this capital allocation philosophy, we have brought down our net cash balances plus longer term investments from over $23 billion in 2010 to around $7.5 billion today.
We plan to continue our journey returning cash to our shareholders by adjusting our capital structure to further bring down our net cash balances. The intention is to repurchase $4 billion of stock in the third quarter with additional buybacks in Q4. This strategy enables the sufficient liquidity for our operations and provides strategic flexibility to invest in our business while continuing to return cash to our shareholders."
Good point. I tend to now take longer term option positions. At least you maxed out your trade profit.
