Hey dummy, y'all named your moniker right, here's why. Option traders have different objectives, and unless you can guess correctly which ones wanted protection and which ones wanted the stock and which ones wanted income, you can't, with any reasonable certainty, predict which way that trade will go. If there were less open contracts, they could have dumped it under $25; however, those Arbs are out gunned with that many contracts outstanding. INTC isn't da onlyest stalk they play with.
marco the great :-) Oh ye of little mathematical and statistical ability, how much longer must I suffer Yinz, huh? It's a Marcovian random walk dudes, if y'all don't know that then just go home.
Yeppers, INTC circling the bowl for the big plunge!
marco the great :-) if Yinz think today was bad, just wait till y'all see the panic tax loss selling next week. Oh the humanity, the humanity.
Then you're a freaking moron:
Profit growth for 2014-Ah balonney
Dividend increase - Ah balonney
marco the great :-) Yinz had a great chance to dump this POS today, shame on y'all who didn't take it. I'm back at WH now, and if I get time on the almost manager's computer, I'm gonna short this POS down to $16. Watch and learn children.
Then you're a moron.:
Financial crisis-Ah Balooney
War in the middle east - Ah Balonney
Debt crisis - Ah Balonney
Fed Tappering - Ah Balloney
marco the great :-) Look morons, it's the interest rates & the $ stupid. Oh ye of bullish faith, how long must we suffer Yinz, huh?
plus a $0.25/hour raise. I knew that place would fall apart after I left. I went back to say hi today and guess what? Anybody? The new cook burned herself on the grill-what a complete moron-and quit after everybody made jokes about it. The assistant manager, who hates me because I'm prettier than he, begged me to come back. I'm only doing this for another month, until I can find a job as a heart doctor, actuary, boxer, or something that pays more than friggin $11.25/hour. So, until then I'll have to make my mad money shorting this POS, INTC.
marco the great :-) BTW, notice how the futures are green right now, huh? That means a red opening and another huge down down day for y'all folks.
Ah, ich kabibble anna tanna ticold ak quashdat gullyrhat a rhella peckabuba
marco ekiee la schlacky :-) stuba stuba ramma ramma ding #$%$!
Trust me on this.
marco the great :-) don't fall for witlessweaver's shamefull post, he's a greedy capitalist pig who would kill his own cat just to same money on cat food.
stocks, that is. Company found out about my felony conviction and unoffered me the job, or something like that. I might get on as a driver, where there's no restriction on prior convictions. Trouble is, I never drove one of those 18 wheelers, but, it can't be that hard from the total morons I see barreling down the road. Some #$%$ Dude from Alabama says he made $96K so far this year, and only worked 10 months.
BTW, did any of Yinz notice that INTC gave up every penny of its modest gains today in the after market, huh? This does not bode well for whimpy longs like witless_the moron_weaver tomorrow. I mean like, you know, he panics when this stock falls a couple or three pennys, like some of y'all folks.
marco the great :-) I'd hate to be long when Da Fed puts the wammie on this bloated ponzi scheme, which outta put the Big Kabosh on INTC. Go short or go home dudes.
INTC is doomed, maybe worser, happy, happy, happy, happy ...I've got $24 INTC puts.
marco the greatest :-) Maybe one of Yinz sold em to me, huh?
Ah, wassa matter yew, douglASSWHOLE642, huh? Y'all got a problem with my ancestry or sumthin, huh?
marco the great :-) Consider this a cyber kick in yer GD #$%$, or something. okay? If I were a rich man, ya da dah da dah da dee, all day long I'd dee dol dee de dee, if I were a ri ich man ......
P.S. Start fracking job monday. Gawd, I hope we're drilling next to douggy's trailor.
Just when y'all thought the worstest was over .....it's not over!
marco the great :-) Yinz outta think about selling your INTC losses against gains on your good stocks. Load up on ca$h for next year, after a HUGE market correction. Have a great weekend to everyone who didn't give marco a hard time this week. witless_the moron_weaver, obviously that doesn't inclue you.
Kenny Griffin taught me this trick, he doesn't pay anything for option commissions since he owns the friggin company, but, it still works on dogs like INTC. Here's how it goes. Oh, make sure ya buy out at least to 12/27/13, okay?
1. Short as many INTC shares as you can afford, say 1,000 shares, or 10 contracts.
2. Buy 10 contracts of a protective put at .50 higher than your short.
the 100 contracts will probably set y'all back about $850, plus a few bucks commission for the write, chicken feed for a player like y'all folks. Now, no matter how much INTC rises, unlikely but possible, your maximum risk is $850. Now, say INTC falls below $23.16, okay. Yeeehawww, you're rich. Every penny INTC drops below $23.16 is money in your pocket, $10 for every penny.
marco the greatest :-) Last day tomorrow at the Waffle House. I'm giving Linda my secret recipe for my killer home fries-customers can't get enough of em. I add some onions, green and red peppers, and a special spice, which I ain't telling you morons, who wouldn't appreciate it anyway. #$%$ if y'all have a problem with that.
He's a paid INTC pumpmeister, and gets $2,500 per article from investor relations, where they also give him his talking points.
marco the greatest :-) He'd never make it as a short order #$%$, where nobody's around to tell you what to do and say. Oh, early shift tomorrow and then done at WH. Passed me physical-I'm tough-and start monday in me training program. Later Dudes
Hey ashrat, quit the BS, okay? You're worser than witless_the moron_weaver, maybe the same dufuss.
marco the greatest :-) Look, let me give y'all a lesson in stocks, okay? It's not about today's earnings, it's about FUTURE earnings, get it? #$%$ T U R E earnings. That's future with an eff. Without an eff, you just be ucked.
ALERT! This just in. HIUGE Hedge Fund dumping millions of INTC shares. Remember that $5,000,000 put buy lst week? Anybody? They leaked the story and e-mailed some of their buddies. Folks, yinz don't have a chance against em.
marco the happiest :-) They know what tyme you're gonna wake up tomorrow before you go to bed.
Hope one of y'all sold em to me ...hehehehe
Early X-mas present for marco. I must be living right.
marco the greatest :-) Y E S! I'd say I tole yinz so, but, y'all already know that, huh?
Yep, I quit my job at the Waffle House this morning. Mary was crying when she found out. Unlike y'all folks, she can't get enough of me. Okay, where ya going you ask? No way I'm telling you morons, but, it's with a fracking company in the East. Got me a job as a project manager. I put down I had experience scheduling projects, however, they didn't check my references. I did schedule 5 employees at the WH a couple of times, so it wasn't a total lie, like Obama's ACA. Even if they eventually do check, they pay very good money till then. Anybody know what project managers actually do, right now I have no clue.
marco the great :-) Ah, yesterday I couldn't spell manager, today, I are one. BTW, yinz shoulda listened to me about this sinking Titanic.
