  • Intel is a massive short with puts or even the stock at this point 26.4 if you buy also protective calls. It has failed to experience a correction for over 2 months now. This is unprecedented actually. The fact they upgrade it at such levels serves only their exit positions and shorting. Do not listen to punks that when the stock were at 23.5 were nowhere to be found. Why do they always upgrade at +2sd and in overbought long term places like here were we are also2sd on 250 day average.

    Now the stock can deliver good earnings but i dont care at this point. This is a royal set up in the making. Its a short squeeze play too and after they are done having forced others to cover they will themselves short it at the top.. Expect easily 10-15% decline in everything also any time now. This market has had it with the no correction bs. This is not how healthy bull markets behave. This market is manipulated the past few years and behaves completely irrationally never experiencing strong selloffs and melt ups that are quickly reversed. It seems that they give a signal to rally something and they take it up for weeks and then at some point they trash it. Very coordinated. They do not let it normally on its own have a gradual up down cycle as it would do if they were to let random people fight it out . They extend it as if they want to exploit the small players to chase it or to panic cover depending on the direction they try to maintain for long periods.

    Right now the message is to panic the shorts and to get people to chase it and hold the bag at the near term top over 26. You have seen it before and you know how it ends. Expect 24+ very soon again. I would love to see Intel in a healthy run to 30 but this is bs the way they are doing it and it feels very orchestrated for a selloff eventually that will take it badly down and break the momentum. Its like they use intel to make money up and down and they upgrade at the top and downgrade at the bottom like clockwork.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • This is now very critical point for intel especially with x dividend date etc coming. I expect a severe rebound from here. If this fails the situation will be no different than a crashing trend because it is now 10 vs 2 down-up days very oversold (like once a year type thing) and the drop is like 11% which is significant and makes it ridiculous to have those losers upgrade it at 26+ and keep silent now at 24 and change.

    Shows how they only place recommendations to do the exact opposite for themselves and their close clients, victimizing all others that listen.

    The proper time to buy a stock is when it is painful and its not painful at 27, its here and now that the stock has been trashed without any rebound and without basically having any news different than what we already knew weeks ago lol. Which is why the move to 27 was not reasonable as it happened so strong.

    However if the stock manages to recover from this and stops the after earnings declining trend, you have in place a very important longer timeframe trend-line to over 30 this year say around 5-6 months still intact.

    A drop sub 24 for a few days will kill that uptrend for good though. This is why this point today is very critical. If there is solid big time money that wants to enter intel, it will do it now and the trend will be saved and that will mean a lot actually as this game is about the future not the near term bs moves where big money is concerned.

    Selling out of the money puts short (strike 24) to buy stock if needed or buying march 24 calls here is ok i think.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    If intel can survive the low just made for the next 2-3 days a buy signal will be in place and an uptrend to 30+ eventually will remain intact.

    So a hedge for crash with near term puts strike 24 say 2 weeks out (15-16c) and a big position with calls strike 24 or 25 march or april makes great sense.
