ARM Holdings (NASDAQ:ARMH): Shares of the semiconductor stock, a key Apple (AAPL) supplier, are sliding 6.3% in today’s weak London tape on the back of a Neutral-from-Outperform downgrade by BNP Paribas.
ARM Holdings PLC (ARMH, ARM.LN) added to Tuesday's loses, falling 3% to $45.82, a day after the U.K.-based chip maker's analyst and investor day. The conference pointed to slower growth prospects in key markets and a lack of scale in new markets to take up the growth slack, said Societe Generale.
Worry about INTC now. Forget ARMH. INTC was just breaking out of a trading range. Then whacked by the market.
I sold 500 June 24 calls for a huge gain between 81 and 84 cents. ;^) Will buy some more July 24s and 25s if the price continues to go down.
Tizen: Meet the Asian Android-Killer From Intel and Samsung
By André Mouton Mar 18, 2013 9:00 am
Tizen will retain Android's more desirable features, like the low price tag and the cross-compatibility between markets, but it will also leave room for regional adaptation.

Tizen, the new mobile OS from Samsung (KRX:005930) and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), is a lot like Android (NASDAQ:GOOG). Both operating systems are open source and Linux-based. They look and feel about the same, and smartphone users won’t have any problem switching between the two. Their logos, however, suggest a difference. When Google chose a personable green robot to represent Android, it was selling the system’s intelligence, with its integrated "brain" of Google Web apps and services. Tizen, on the other hand, is portrayed as a pinwheel – a toy that spins in whatever direction the wind is blowing.
In other words, it’s a platform that doesn’t discriminate.
Android has had a remarkably successful run in the four years since it debuted. Today, it comes on about half of the smartphones sold globally. In emerging markets, though – and Asia in particular – this success has been an awkward one. Google might be the dominant search engine and Web services provider in the US and Europe, but across the Pacific, that position is held by the likes of Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), Naver (KRX:035420), and Yahoo Japan (TYO:4689). Google’s Web apps are not always available, and when they are, they’re not generally preferred. The fact that Android is free, and has a large application base, means that manufacturers have adopted it anyway, but they’ve been forced to offer customized versions that strip away the Google content and replace it with less native content. samsung tizen

Samsung To Use Intel Atom Processor In Its New 10” Tablet [REPORT]
May 20, 2013
By Marie Cabural
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) could capture a significant share in the tablet market with its new 22nm based “Bay Trail” atom processors, which will be launched by the company in the second half of 2013, according to analysts at JP Morgan Equity Research.
The analysts believe that the launching of the Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)’s Bay Trail atom processor might negatively affect the ARM processors market share for tablets.
They also cited a report from AndroidOS.in that Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) might be using Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)’s Atom Z2560 Clover Trail + processor in its new 10-inch Android tablet.
JP Morgan analysts Sandeep Deshpandee, Chetan Udeshi and Vipul Hirani cited that if the report is true, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) will potentially benefit from Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) as the company is perceived to capture a meaningful share in the Android tablet market.
According to the analysts, “We note than Atom Z2560 contains Imaginatio’s PowerVR SGX 544MP2 GPU and thus, this potential win for Intel would also be positive to Imagination’s royalty units/revenue.”
Shares of Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) are trading around $24.07 per share on Monday.
Meanwhile, JP Morgan analysts noted that the semiconductor business continues to improve, citing every company present during the 41st JP Morgan Technology Conference indicated a growing rate of backlogs and orders. The analysts also cited that most companies projected a normal seasonal revenue growth in the second quarter this year.
The analysts also believe that non-tech investors have been buying shares of semiconductor companies as they look for leverage and yield. According to them, “We expect semiconductor stocks to continue to drift higher, along with consensus estimates, as long as the global economy continues
