"MU bounced off one trendline, but if it breaks 32, the next trendline is about 31.55. I think it might break 32."
[LOL. You must be the only investor on the planet who didn't notice Micron's strength today. ]
"so, keep watching those options- look at volumes being traded (should be high in volume) and the price premium of the strike ;)"
[From this post the only thing one can conclude is that neither you nor the option traders have any idea where the stock price is going.]
" I still expect MU to drop to 24."
"If It plays out, target is 10"
[It's hard to take any of your posts seriously when you post this kind of stupidity. Especially while you are getting your head handed to you in a basket. Especially when you offer no analysis, facts, logic or reasoning.]
I'm actually anxious to see what Apple comes up with on the iWatch. This will be really the first opportunity to see what Apple is capable of without Jobs. I'm hoping that all this time is what it has taken to make it an insanely great product. But, um, I remain somewhat skeptical. Shouldn't be long now.
"Since when is a shriveled up old message board addict living in a 800 SF house in a bad section of California considered a "player" ? Explain."
[Players are people who have stock or derivative positions and therefore the right to an opinion as to what is going on with the markets. You don't.]
"Boy am i kicking myself right now. Gotta trust your judgment!"
[And now how do you feel? ]
There was no way that Intel's massive state-of-the-art capacity was going to go untapped. Panasonic now makes it six that have signed on. All without jeopardizing x86.
You can be sure that there are more deals in negotiation or that have already been consummated but not yet announced.
"Pot calling the kettle black since you're not short armh and haven't done squat with INTC other than pump it day and night for years."
[I have multiple stock positions. You have nothing. Go away.]

Panasonic will make SoCs in a low-power flavor of Intel's 14nm process technology. The Japanese company is the sixth announced customer for a foundry business that Intel says is strategic and expanding its packaging capabilities.
"We are doing extremely well getting customers who can use our technology," Sunit Rikhi, general manager of Intel's foundry group, said in a talk at Semicon West, though he would not provide details. "We are in this business to grow, and it's strategically an important vector in our Intel strategy."
Other companies making or planning to make chips in Intel's fabs include Achronix, Altera, Microsemi, Netronome, and Tablula. Rikhi described Intel's foundry business in broad terms: "We need to demonstrate our service orientation and earn trust of customers."
He suggested that the low-power variant of Intel's 14nm process is relatively new. Intel uses a general-purpose 22nm process but supports multiple flavors of its 32nm process.
Yoshifumi Okamoto, director of Panasonic's SoC group, said in a press release, "We will deliver highly improved performance and power advantages with next-generation SoCs by leveraging Intel's 14nm Tri-Gate process technology through our collaboration."
When asked about chip stacks, Rikhi said Intel is offering several options and plans to start work with outside packaging companies soon. "So far we have offered integrated packaging in-house, but we are beginning to talk to some customers about their buying wafers from us and having packaging done by OSATs. I would expect we will do that before too long."
Intel expects to make 10nm chips without extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography, he said, reiterating comments from Intel's Mark Bohr. However, Rikhi expressed enthusiasm for getting access to next-generation scanners and larger wafers as soon as possible. "EUV is like 450mm wafers. When it comes, it is great."
"then it will roll over very quickly before closing the day in the low 30s. Tomorrow will be ugly."
[But you still haven't put your money where your mouth is, have you? And you never will.]
"they can only hold it up for so long"
[You've never been more wrong than today, Lucy. Nasdaq down 70 points and Intel down a dime. It's a good thing you don't have any skin in the game.
Even on a day where the Nasdaq is down big, Intel is still yo daddy. LOL
Let's hear it, Lucy. Who's yo daddy?
Intel. Hoo. Intel. Hoo.
Intel yo daddy.]
ARM down $1.42, Intel down 11 cents.
AE's profits have once again disappeared.
But he'll get a nice note from Twinkletoes saying it doesn't matter because ARM has had a good run. Of course, AE didn't buy at the beginning of that run.
You don't have any positions. You are not an investor. So, why don't you leave the discussions to people who do and are.
Spend your time on something productive - like figuring out how to get the spellchecker to work on your Etch-A-Sketch.
Someone is going to be hungover tomorrow.
All things being equal I prefer to see Wall Street get crazy. Because unless you are someone like Twinkletoes, crazy is really hard to perpetuate.
So, go on and get crazy, Wall Street. Woo Hoo, party on.
"I don't believe the standard's battle will be won on the distinction between LOS & NLOS alone. The 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands used for Wi-Fi are both considered LOS, but at the relatively small distances in a home they behave as NLOS."
[True, it won't be totally based on LOS/NLOS but a huge part of the IoT isn't going to be in the home (think things like vending machines, signs, traffic signals,cameras, water and gas sensors, kiosks, package tracking and on and on.). I'm just saying that a standard should be all-encompassing and Qualcomm clearly doesn't have a scope of knowledge that would allow them to develop such a standard. A standard needs to encompass LOS/NLOS, frequency sharing, bandwidth sharing, etc. Qualcomm hasn't yet figured out what the IoT is really about. They still think of it as an extension of cell phones. It's not. And that's why they are an extremely poor choice to head up the effort.]
