Although, Bernard Baruch's philosophy was "Put all of your eggs in one basket......and watch the basket." History reveals that he did pretty well for himself. Not for the faint of heart however.
The question is how many of those Cyber Monday sales had "Intel Inside?" Car sales are up, too, but unless they're up for the cars you manufacture, the broad numbers don't mean much. Any details?
Again....What am I missing? Wallis today keeps posting that the so-called "paid shill pool is in disarray," yet the INTC stock price is down today. Does he have his daily chart upside-down?
Did I miss something? The so-called paid shills seem to have the advantage today with the share price down, not up.
Wallis--Your assertion that an oil boom will "substantially solve the unemployment problem" is patently inaccurate. First, jobs are not created if drilling permits in the U.S. are not approved, and they are down 36 percent during the Obama Administration. Also, you need to be able to transport the oil once it is taken out of the ground,. So far, the president is opposed to the Keystone pipeline--a majjor transportation proposal. Even if more drilling and transportation systems are approved, there will still be millions of people in the U. S. unemployed. So, it is simply inaccurate to say that an oil boom will "substantially solve the unemployment problem." Can you provide more details re your claim?
From what I've heard, the dog already ran away,he's not married and doesn't have a friend, his car is already jacked up in the front yard, he's out of work, and he didn't have any money for anyone to borrow in the first place. Some hex.
Wallis gets thrown a scrap of bread today the tries to turn it into a Thanksgiving feast. Can't wait for his excitement if it gets back to $24 by Christmas.
Lots of controversy by both sides regarding Intel's prospects. I found it interesting to compare current 52-week price changes for some key benchmarks and others in the high-tech category:
Nasdaq: +33 percent
S & P 500: +29 percent
Dow: +23 percent
MSFT: +46 percent
HPQ: +125 percent
TXN: +45 percent
AMD: +87 percent
ARMH: +38 percent
INTC: +17 percent
Most investors would be more than happy with a 17 percent capital gains return on their investment over a 52-week period. But for this year, at least, Intel hasn't measured up to either market benchmarks or others in its space.
To suggest that corporate decisions can be affected by a message on a message board, like individual votes can determine a government election, is a real stretch. Mass communications can be effective in influencing government decisions (the little drops of rain you reference). But corporate decisions are influenced by hedge funds, institutions, and people like Carl Icahn and Warren Buffett. To believe that "every single input into sentiment gets measured and has an effect" in corporate America is to not understand the dynamics of block voting. Said more bluntly, it's delusional.
Nenni's so-called "bashing campaign" may be a waste of time, accoding to Wallis, but judging from the stock price over the past three years or so, Wallis' "pumping campaign" seems to have been a waste of time as well.
Wally once again stoops to the lows he berates others for: Personal attacks and posts without content. Nice, job, Wally. The hypocrite strikes again.
There should be a new rule: Anyone with more than 10,000 or more posts, whether bulls or bears should be investigated. Or should it be 20,000, Wallis?
Wallis--You've been forcasting that Intel will plost up numbers significantly in excess of guidance quarter after quarter. Once, again, you predict actions that "could" produce results in excess of guidance. If pigs "could" fly they wouldn't bump their butts so often. Obviously, BK believes they have been bumping their butt too often. Until they produce they numbers you are still wishing and hoping. Still stuck at $24.
Poster Alert! Anyone who has incurred Wallis' wrath for challenging any of his thousands of perma-bull pumps (as a paid shill for Intel?) should (once again) be prepared for a raid by the Attorney General, NSA, Secretary of State and National Guard. You know who you are. You know you are part of an organized Intel bashing campaign. Wallis will get you for this and the guilty will we held accountable. You can run, but you can't hide.
Uh, Oh! Ashraf has followed today's Motley Fool Qualcoom piece with a second Motley Fool piece suggesting that Intel is "dead money" for the next three months. While right on target with this and other observations in my opinion, Wallis can be expected to go from unglued to apoplectic. Maybe he's already read them. Could this be why he hasn't started pumping yet today?
Ashraf--I thought it was an honest and cogent appraisal. I am hopeful that Intel can show significant progress in turning promise into performance in the coming year, but am not oblivious to the hurdles that lie ahead. Falling in love with a stock, on the other hand, causes one look through the telescope from the wrong end.
