    Ashraf, I thing at this point, Michael Blair has about 600 2016 Intel calls.
    I myself have a combination of 2015 and 2016 calls along with Intel shares.
    Shares are nearly 2000, while my total calls are around 200. If the stock drops, I will
    add more calls but have no plans exiting the shares since the dividend yield is still rather nice. Is Intel your largest holding at the time, and if you don't mind, would you let us know what holdings you have in Intel? I for one would have preferred to load up more at the low $20's, but I have to place my limits in any stock investments. Strategy of buying calls when stock is out of favor and trading deep in the money calls for out of money calls as the stock has upward momentum has been paying off. Currently, my calls are with gains only. I believe Michael Blair is in the same situation. Helps you sleep at night. Another small holding I have is Cisco since they have so much money in the bank. I got rid of my HPQ shares with a sizable gain. Bought it in the teens, but have a hard time following their strategy for the long term given the many competitors and potential for new competitors.

    I'm a confident Intel investor. Those who continue to state that I'm a pumper are clearly Intel haters. Doesn't make sense for Intel longs to attack some so called pumper. As for my Razr phone, I still have it and it still takes time to load Yahoo finance page. At times it has been more than a minute. Once my contract is over, I'm changing it. Looking for something completely new, I would rather try an Intel based phone for once.

    But don't these things take time? And $3.7 Billion loss is the case because sales have not materialized yet. Intel said, this is not a sprint but a marathon. I'm sure Intel is seeing its advancements in smartphones year over year and thinks is well worth the losses. If they did nothing, then the market could also punish them for not trying at all. If you are going to invest in Intel, one thing that is required is alot of patience. But the important thing for now, is that Intel is not losing money. In fact, it's has maintained near record revenues of $54 billion for the 3 to 4 years. The losses come from sizeable investments with R&D in areas they want to have competitive edge in. Coming from behind takes time but it's nevertheless very possible for a company like Intel. Frustration is better served by communication it to the company you are concerned about rather than the investors. I believe the company would have the answers you are looking for alot more than the investors do.

    I will admit that I was a very interested reader in his SA articles in the past.
    But this on again, and mostly off again frustration type article have made me
    somewhat disinterested. Been more patient lately in waiting for an article or two from
    the likes of Michael Blair or Russ Fischer. They also got some serious money on the long
    side of Intel. So they put their money where their mouth is. Ashraf needs to understand
    that Intel is not going anywhere and in time will win. Not may, but WILL WIN!
    And one thing Intel cannot be blamed for and that is in overstating the truth.
    At least not more that others can be blamed for in terms of breaking into the PC market and taking share
    away from Intel. In the meantime, the internet experience on my Qualcomm based smartphone is still
    frustrating. This time I decided to reduce my data allowance to bare bone minimum. Just use it to check
    traffic while on the road and wait for every other internet experience when I get home to my desktop and 24" monitor with real internet pages, full size keyboard and easy to use mouse.

    What a great comeback with your get lost comment.
    I can resort to name calling also, but I'm not going to on this
    Easter weekend.
    In the meantime, Intel has been good enough to help
    me make money being on the positive side.

    Forgot to buy some Intel stock or calls didn't you?
    Now you are hoping the stock comes down.
    So you buy Intel puts.
    Wish you all the bad luck you can get as a short.
    The things Intel has done for computing and the advancements it has made,
    people like you don't even deserve to say their name.

    The Humpty Report

    Wallis,
    Intel may not make profits in the near term in tablets and smartphones, but their strong push to grow in those areas should put some hurt in ARM based products. Maybe even hurt Qualcomm to some extent.
    Currently, I have no put position in ARM, but am very happy with my Intel gains. Especially the deep in the money 2015 calls. Overall, I still have a large portion of the profits that I cashed in from previous puts. So far, buying 3 month puts on ARM has been working nicely for me if I place the bets when the stock is solidly above the $50 mark. And selling them when they hit the low $40's or the high $30's. But again, I do the ARM bets of puts just for fun. The real investment is in Intel since Intel is alot more transparent in their data than most other techs.

    Great results from Intel

    I agree as well. But eventhough the results were encouraging, the market may be looking to kill some April calls. So I traded my April $26 calls, which I bought from pure profit, to May $26 calls for only 14 cents more. Would be nice to see Intel stock rise near $30 in the next 3 months so that I can trade my January 2015, $22 calls for some January 2016, $27 or $30 calls. Will hold on to the stock though. That's a keeper.

  • Intel obviously beat Q1 by 1 penny.
    But I think the guidance of the gross margin is what investors are excited about.
    Expectations were for EPS of 43 cents and $12.96 Billion in revenues.
    Intel's midpoint of guidance was 45 cents EPS on $13 Billion of revenues.
    Hope stock continues moving higher after option expiration.
    Seeing the $30's in the next 3 months would be nice.

    Enjoying my vacation and enjoying the current rise of Intel stock.
    Must be really frustrating to the Lucy's of this message board.
    I think Intel stock still has some room to rise. At the $29 to $30 mark,
    it would be a nice time I think to switch over the deep in the money calls
    of 2015, to closer to the money calls of 2016. A positive earnings calls
    could add more fuel to the rise. As for the stock, I have no intention of
    selling any. Some of the advancements Intel is currently making in mobile
    products could allow them to raise dividend this year.

    My Big Mistake

    by wallisweaver Mar 24, 2014 11:58 PM
    paul.ottelini paul.ottelini Mar 25, 2014 2:42 PM Flag

    Exactly! I can understand your frustration.
    Although, I've never made that mistake so far.
    I do have a tablet now and my old iPhone is just collecting dust.
    The tablet is just for pure fun. Can't even get a decent experience
    surfing the net with it. I just go in some wifi location, dump a bunch
    of free games in the memory, and use it when I'm waiting for something
    or flying in a plane for pure fun. The form factor is just plain extremely limited.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Actually I have those leaps as well, but am in with money gained from Jan. 15 $20 leaps when it was just below $27. Basically traded my deep in the money leaps with zero premium to slightly in the money and out of the money leaps with about 2% premium on average. Kind of like paying insurance to save a majority of my gains in case we get a market correction. Are you restricted in hedging your bets as well?

    This message board is getting polluted again by psycho boy poster pretending to be the guardian of this board. Do you have another site where you post? Ashraf suggested iHub, not that I agree with everything he says. But would like to hear what you have to say also without any interruptions by lunatics.
    Do you frequent iHub quite a bit?

    Ashraf,
    Do you own any calls on Intel for the time being?
    Just a reminder too, I would do my best to stay away from attacks.
    Responding to attacks themselves also is a big waste of time.
    I feel the need to defend also, but trust me when I tell you that
    posters such as pumper-kryptonite aka Warreneast, among some others,
    have more time on their hands.
    If you really like Intel's potential, focus on the company itself and not what people
    here say about you. Really is a waste of time.
