"GREEN Looks like we are going back to 29.87"
[Shorts have begun the hard work of giving their profits back. They have a lot of experience in this so they should be capable of giving them all back and more.]
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)-owned Basis Science has launched a new Titanium edition of its fitness tracking watch, the Basis Peak. Basis was acquired by the chip maker more than a year ago, and now it is all set to offer its new watch to the market, creating competition for the Apple Watch.
How it’s different from Apple Watch
The fitness tracking watch from Intel costs $300, a price point that’s less than Apple’s device costing between $350 and $17,000. The current Basis Peak watch sell at $200, which is a justified price point considering that the sensors put in the watch can track heart rate, measure the number of hours a user is sleeping and track activities like swimming, walking, running or biking.
Jef Holove, general manager of the Basis division at Intel, said in an interview with VentureBeat that people are fond of dressing up and being fashionable, and the Basis watch has everything required to make a smartwatch most useful.
Differentiating its product from others made by Apple and Samsung, Holove said the notification feature of the watch is common, but, “We are not in the same category as general-purpose devices like Samsung and Apple watches.” The executive said that the company is largely focused on the premium health and fitness space, adding, “We intend to give you the most comprehensive view of your health. That is what we do deep.”
"If you're a market leader in smartphones you have to be taking this seriously. But from this point forward it's only going to get better for Intel and its partners"
[You made 6 cents on the short side and could have made 60 cents on the long side. What a complete pinhead.]
"If you're a market leader in smartphones you have to be taking this seriously. But from this point forward it's only going to get better for Intel and its partners."
[Yeah, I think this is a real breakthrough for Intel.
The author was ragging on the big carriers. LOL. So, I think he was primarily saying that you could save some money with an unlocked phone and one of the discount carriers rather than you had to use one. ]
The Asus ZenFone 2 is the latest high-quality smartphone to break the $300 barrier. This could really unsettle Samsung
If you don't need that amazing Verizon network coverage or a family plan, though, as a smart consumer, you should make sure to look at these cheaper options. A One Touch Idol, OnePlus, or ZenFone goes very well with discount sub-brands like AT&T's Cricket and T-Mobile's MetroPCS, or virtual carriers like Wal-Mart's Straight Talk, Giv, and Ting. When you do the math over two years, you may find yourself saving hundreds of dollars over a standard plan this way.

[This is more bad news for Samsung and Apple as it will further erode high-end smartphone sales. More pressure on ASPs and margins. Obviously a lot more people don't have money to throw away on a high-end phone if they can get a lot of the same performance for half the price.]
"and Rigged to beat as many as possible. Violations of Sherman Act now included, UBS named as a Fradulent participator as well as Citi, and 3 other Banks. Scammed the whole World. Lawmaker's can't even determine the amount of DAMAGE!!!!!!"
[And unfortunately this is just a normal day on Wall Street where the boys would rather steal than work.]
"It has to break thru the Top Channel line at about 26.75!!!!! It can do it going sideways, but it has to do it. and it is not doing it yet. Support at 26.00 has to hold or anchors away. It is do or die now for longs at this level to move up."
[It's not do or die for longs, it's time for the pinhead shorts to get a grip and step away from the greed. Or better yet just hang in and cover at a higher level. I love day's like today, watching shorts give it all back.]
"Sorry....thumbs down for you pure comedy post........jefferies the pump have had $40 dollar price targets on this for ever and are the laffing stock of the investment word for it..........when you here the words micron the real boys shrug and say nex.t"
[For being totally clueless you should check out Micron bear Romit the Vomit Shah. I want to be on the upside of any major tech stock he hates.]
"You do know that when you click on flag you have to go to the bottom and click on the word HERE and a new window opens that you can mark as SPAM. Yahoo has gotten sneaky and has a multi step process for spam."
[The problem is that Yahoo does absolutely nothing about anything that anyone flags for any reason. The Message Board manager is a total do-nothing pinhead who could care less about the integrity and safety of the message boards.]
1.) Intel quantum well technology.
Intel could gain a capability as early as 2016 to produce 10nm transistors as much as 200 millivolts lower in power consumption than the rest of the industry. Kanter expects other chip makers will not be able to catch up with the techniques until their 7nm node, at least two years later.
2.) Intel first to EUV
Intel buys 15 next-Gen chip machines from ASML
3.) Windows 10 to be released in July.
4.) Intel Windows Smartphone.
5.) Intel Compute Stick coming with Skylake-Y - a huge market for Intel. Already launched.
6.) Push into mobile. "The company expects its mobile group to break even in 2016."
7.) Intel built-to-order Xeon D chips. Another big success.
8.) Micron and Intel Unveil New 3D NAND Flash Memory.
9.) Big server, data center and IoT growth.
10.) An Intel Altera acquisition would boost foundry business.
11.) Skylake coming in October.
12.) The death of RT and the revival of the Wintel relationship.
13.) Intel's EDR InfiniBand arriving soon.
14.) The push into smartphones is beginning to accelerate.
15.) Intel is becoming the leading tablet processor provider.
16.) The elimination of contra-revenue will provide a major bump in the bottom line.
17.) Apple using Intel's LTE Modem in 2016.
18.) Intel could sell 30 million smartphone processors this year.
19.) Jefferies projects Intel stock to trade at around the $48 mark in the next 12 months.
20.) ASUS releases ZenFone 2 in the US.
[The ZenFone 2's major specs aside, this phone is certainly aiming to check as many boxes as it can with its modest price point, offering features such as dual SIM card support, microSD support, and NFC support. NFC is largely lacking from most of phones in that price range, and the addition allows for users who may not otherwise have the chance to try out services like Google Wallet tap-and-pay.
