Dumpty, you're a moron. The two are unrelated at best, and inversely related at worst. Come on, take your meds as prescribed. Please.
Aw, poor Mr. Nuff101 likes to dish it out, but can't take it. The truth hurts, doesn't it. Take an aspirin, you'll feel better.
I agree that it's bad PR no matter what his reasons. I don't know his personal circumstances but I can't imagine why he'd sell the bulk of his position unless it's to invest in a new venture or that he's getting axed or leaving Intel for a new position.
You're as dumb as you look, which makes you pretty dumb. Medicare for all would be great. You've obviously never been really ill. But given the probabilities, you will be one day. And when that day comes, I hope you'll have the means to pay. For-profit health insurance is a scam. High pay for executives and stock prices for shareholders translate to high premiums and low payouts. After all, for-profit health insurance is all about PROFIT. Not health. And of course, society is geared to making folks ill. Cigarettes, alcohol, fast junk food, etc.. It's a big circle jerk. Enjoy your health while you've got it. It won't last..
I own Intel stock and options, but there's no way it's going to $50 by the end of the year, or even next year. That's not how Wall Street works. My guess, and it's only a guess, is that if earnings keep increasing and they get into smartphones in a meaningful way next year, the stock price will be between $40-$45 going into 2016. Barring any catastrophes.
If lack of news about any dividend makes you nervous, you need to see a professional. Badly. I assume you live in Boston. I know folks there that can possibly help you. Just post if you want a reference.
Your Wall Street and ARM rants are stupid, but worse, boring. Can't you come up with another Dead Horse to beat? Dumpty, I think you're clever enough to come up with something new. Go for it.
You mean like who's gonna buy an Internet Stock like Facebook that has no dividend and an exorbitant stock price because folks believe that those mobile ads actually result in purchases. I'd call that gambling. Intel is the most important company in America. Without it, Facebook along with all the other Internet companies and many, many others, wouldn't exist. Facebook could go away tomorrow and it wouldn't really affect anybody in any meaningful way. Take Intel away, and there's a big problem.
You're right. I'll spin it the way I want. I don't care about the measly dividend, but I do like capital appreciation which will occur with the buyback. Reducing share count is always a good thing...if you already own shares. Which I do, and you don't.
Exactly, and much more besides that. It's mumbo-jumbo. So if you can't use it to predict future moves with some degree of certainty, what good is it? Some folks who use it might say that it's better than nothing or fundamental analysis, but I don't know. I think mostly, the market is rigged for certain stocks at certain times. There certainly is collusion, where groups of stocks in the same sector trade exactly the same at exactly the same time. But no one cares about collusion.
Really. If TA is a science, it should be able to be testable via experiment. What does TA predict the price of Intel to be in 3, 6, 9, and 12 months along with the respective probabilities? Anything that can't be tested via experimentation is not a science. It's mumbo jumbo, like religion.
BK knows how to play the game. Plus, he's not against partnering and doing deals. Much more open than the last guy. He's basically getting the Wall Street bozos to trust him. As he should, as they control the stock price
So what do you suggest? Tougher sanctions? War? Exactly what should we do? It's easy to call out Putin for the thug that he is, but what do we do about it? Europe gets a ton of energy from Russia, so they're not about to do anything about the guy. What's your solution?
Is that all? I thought it was more. Write back when you're talking about real money.
