    Hyper hread this it's 24 cores. Fun for a desktop but killer in a server. Soon enough it will be at 14nm. This is why Intel is hard to beat in servers.

    Very disappointed with no dividend increase..

    This is the same management that told the industry in no uncertain terms that this year would be flat. When they made this statement the stock was somewhere in the 24 to 26 range. So the increase is icing on the cake of what should be a pretty dismal year. The dividends come out of retained earnings. When you look at the weighted average cost of capital retained earnings tend to be the most expensive money you can get your hands on. However when you pay it out it simply means that you have no better use for the money. Intel is eating cash like there is tomorrow. It's one of the rare companies that can do this. Its on a race for market domination. To do this it's going to need every penny it can get it's hands on. By next year we'll see who is at 14nm finfet and who is talking about 16nm finfet. By this point the industry will be forever changed.

    ARMH cut

    intel_fanboy intel_fanboy Jul 22, 2014 10:28 AM Flag

    As for me, though I don't own ARMH I am happy about this. I'll take this win even on a technicality. The reason why is because if ARMH were to lose steam now it really cannot be fully attributed to Intel as of yet. The entire narrative would be lessening demand in the tech industry and Intel would suffer as a result.. The short term narrative could pull down Intel's stock price at a time that it's experiencing new highs. Strange how bad news for AMD didn't affect Intel but ARMH just possibly could.

    Yawn. Okay, so you want us all to believe that there is some psychotic pr1ck who comes on this board and pushes mainly Wallis Weaver around day after day. You and Wallis Weaver, day after day. Focus on you and Wallis Weaver day after day. Posts by you and Wallis Weaver day after day. Most people don't have time for this. Except someone who is an accountant and finds it funny to host multiple personalities day after day. I can call you at home if you'd like to discuss this further.

    Here's a topic that doesn't involve a personality on this board. ARMH was up huge after hours but this is what was also reported.

    ARM Holdings PLC (NASDAQ: ARMH) was maintained as Neutral but saw its price target cut in overseas coverage at Citigroup. When you translate the U.K. to U.S. prices, it implies upside of just under 3% now, rather than almost 15% upside previously.

    Cashing In the Chips on TSMC

    I don't care what industry we're talking about, when an industry has a finite amount of demand for capacity and more capacity gets added it's going to have huge ramifications. When Intel continues to add capacity next year things will only get worse for ARM Fabs.

    They want to use ARM for better data security? That's a hoot!

    John Kerry in charge of forigen policy is about as bad as Eric Holder as Attorney General. There was no serious Republican candidate during the last election, but one out of the peanut gallery nearly beat Obama.

    Next election it will be a centrist right versus centrist left, not centrist left versus the extreme right.

    We have Obama and John Kerry in charge of international affairs with Joe Biden as backup. Eric Holder is handling things state side. The Middle East is being taken over by extremists, Hammas is out of control and making the Palestinians pay, women and children are migrating to Texas/Arizona at alarming rates And now Russia is shooting down commercial aircraft full of civilians. What could possibly go wrong?

    Yet Another Worthless Presidential Poll

    intel_fanboy intel_fanboy Jul 4, 2014 1:38 PM Flag

    Every second term President gets thrown under the bus. In Obama's case, the critics have a lot of ammo.

    Are you counting on something grand like the A8 being made by TSMC on 20nm planar? Because without something like this I don't get how TSMC gets enough volume to really get the yields in line. You cannot get any of us to believe that TSMC has the yield issues worked out up front. Other than graphics cards and iPhones I just don't know who will pay the premiums for this technology.

    Run to $32?

    by intel_fanboy Jun 24, 2014 12:18 PM
    intel_fanboy intel_fanboy Jun 24, 2014 1:12 PM Flag

    I am in at much lower rates. I've made money in the dividends for years. Unless Intel did an ARMH run up to $54 in a very short period of time where I felt confident that it wouldn't hold I would sell the stock. Otherwise this is a nice long position to hold.

    You never know, a few design wins, and a a few nice articles and this stock can go into orbit without the ability to stick. You can sell, wait and then buy back your position with more shares added. Right now this run up is with merit and I don't see a major crash coming anytime soon. Thus I just smile and hold on.

  • intel_fanboy by intel_fanboy Jun 24, 2014 12:18 PM Flag

    The predictions last week was $32 a share. Seemed like it would take a while to work up there. Now that we're nearly half way there the question becomes where to from here?

  • intel_fanboy intel_fanboy Jun 16, 2014 6:58 PM Flag

    I don't Covello is as stupid as people on here say he is. He's instead a manipulator. When you send your kids to the local state college for a degree in finance chances are very likely that they will never be the big league financial analyst to work a position like Covello. As bright as Ashraf is and as much as he's got going on he may not achieve this level either.

    In the real world if you're a sales rep for a large drug company and you're seen having lunch with your direct competitor who covers the same territory you can both end up in jail for collusion. When it comes to the SEC they aren't for whatever reason as hard core about the cozy relationships between the folks at different financial houses. They all know of each other and many of them have good relationships with their direct competitors.

    When you want to execute a large purchase on Intel there are plenty of analysts who are rating Intel as a "buy" at a price target of $32 to $36. What happens if you're the guy who bought Intel at $24 and rode it to $26, then bought it again when it went back down to $24? Intel was a fairly safe range play. Then as you sold at $28 you decided to short some stock because you knew that a few of your buddies at the other firms were going to do a downgrade on Intel. But as you did this Intel raises guidance and suddenly you're screwed? You can always point to Mr. Covello and plead the case that Intel is overbought. as your company has to cover.

    Covello is a professional #$%$, you accomplice in crime should you need him.

    I get not liking a corporation. One of my friends is after Monsanto and posts night and day about that company. But at least she doesn't go on chat boards and pick fights with random strangers who are investors. It's one thing to feel powerful, but he/she just resorts to name calling.

    i think I hurt him/her when I mentioned that his/her talking point of Intel being at the same stock price range for ten years is no longer true. There were about five talking points at one point, now there are less. Still plenty of insults. Oh well.

    Good analysis, wish I said it myself. According to Lucy, I did! BTW, when have you ever seen me make a post on Intel stock technicals?

    Wallis was right

    Do I worry that some chat board troll is going to fly out to find me and attack me? Nope. Do you worry about this? You are terrified of me. You are terrified that I or someone else may snap and come after you. Not only that, you're terrified that your friends and family won't understand why. They don't know you like we do. They don't know that you are really this mean and nasty.

    Once your found out, the game is over. You have nothing of value to say on here, and never have.

    No I didn't learn my lesson at all. Actually I thought about it since that time and feel that the worst that can happen is people can call me up and tell me that I'm a jerk. But when they do I have their phone numbers and can figure out who they are.

    I really hope you file a police report on me. I'm sure Wallis has all your posts going back years. Remember going back to 2007? Let me give you a reminder "Licky Licky Licky". Oh yeah. we haven't forgotten you. If you have nothing to worry about call the police.

    You are only as employable as long as you're not a liability to your employer. That's the reason why you'll never call the cops. But keep calling me a stalker, it just makes you look like a whimp. Unlike you I can sleep at night. GetanID61 and I have a respect for each other which is more than I can say about the two of us.
