Why on earth would a dollar store bid on a Pharmacy ?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Cowen & Co. semiconductor analyst Timothy Arcuri today writes in a brief note to clients that Intel (INTC) is unlikely to win business for baseband wireless chips with Apple (AAPL) in the iPhone. Arcuri, who has a Hold rating on Intel shares ...
That part bothers me.
"No one has done well buying ARM since April 1st" If it up today people who bought yesterday did well or even earlier today.
It is up 3 bucks today. So they may have done well buying ARM. Most people are short term unless they get caught in a stock and don't want to dump it at a loss.
no anxiety , just watching peculiar moves. The stock has been oversold near term and moves up to toward 33 than large dumping brings it right back down.
How does that create a meltdown? Stagnated it may be, but no "meltdown is probable.
Didn't at least one of our posters talk about it as if it were true the other day? Seems fewer alias negative posters working the board at the moment.
Someone or two will go to jail for this. lol
There's A Horrible Hoax Involving Intel And The Israeli/Gaza Conflict Going Around
By Julie Bort

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich
Someone has sent out a fake but official-looking press release trying to drag Intel into the Israeli/Gaza conflict.
"It's a hoax," Intel spokesperson Chuck Mulloy told us.
Intel is being targeted because it's a huge employer in Israel and is in the process of building a $6 billion facility there.
The fake press release falsely announces that Intel is suspending those investments. And the people perpetrating the hoax are going all out to make it look official. Not only have they set up a spoof website that looks like Intel's real PR site, but they have a guy answering the phone number included in the press release.
We called the number and a man with an American accent answered, "Hello?" We asked him if he was Intel PR and he said he was and then tried to convince us that the news was real. He told us, "We're not closing anything in Israel, we're just putting on hold for now our investment. It will very likely go through in a few months." He told us "we are trying to get ahead of ourselves" so Intel wouldn't suffer from "negative opinion."
Intel is investigating the incident. In the meantime, if you read reports about Intel condemning one side or another between Israel and Gaza, don't believe it.
Spoofed Intel press website on Thursday:
Methods for harvesting the under sea methane could pr9ove invaluable in the future.
This isn't INTC but very interesting.

•Intel posted strong earnings and raised guidance, boosting shares above $33.
•The company is on track to hit its tablet target of 40M units.
•The stabilizing PC market adds buffer to earnings.
In my previous article on 4/18, I predicted that the stabilizing PC market and potential in mobile make Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) a strong buy. Since that article, shares of Intel have risen 25%, comfortably outpacing the 2.9% growth of the S&P 500.
Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) reported its earnings for Q2 of FY14. Revenues came in at $13.83B, beating the street guidance of $13.69B by $140M. Non-GAAP EPS beat guidance by 3 cents at $0.55.
More encouragingly for Intel bulls was the forward-looking guidance for Q3. The midpoint of revenue guidance is now at $14.4B, which is almost $400M above Street consensus of $14.02B. Overall, the company is guiding to FY14 revenue growth of 5%, which is almost $2.6B above my previous estimate of flat revenue. As a result, I decided to update my valuation model to reflect the improvement in performance.
Segment performance (Source: INTC 10-Q)
PC Client Group (PCCG): PCCG reported revenue of $8.7B, up 6% YoY aided by the corporate PC refresh cycle due to the end-of-support of Windows XP. The Operating income for the PCCG group was $3.7B, resulting in an operating margin of 43% which is an 11 point improvement over the prior year quarter. As a result, I'm raising my FY14 numbers to account for the improved performance as well as my operating margin assumptions for FY15 and beyond to 39%, which is in line with the year-to-date operating margin for 2014 and 4 points above my prior assumption of 35%. This has a material impact on the valuation, a
