Intel (INTC) Offering Possible 21.36% Return Over the Next 13 Calendar Days

Intel's most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Intel is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $51.50 short put and a strike $46.50 long put offers a potential 21.36% return on risk over the next 13 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $51.50 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.88 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.12 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $46.50 long put strike price.

The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Intel is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.

The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Intel is bullish.

The RSI indicator is at 51.99 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

‘Next generation' flaws found on computer processors – magazine
Fri, 04 May 2018 03:16:07 +0000
Researchers have found eight new flaws in computer central processing units that resemble the Meltdown and Spectre bugs revealed in January, a German computing magazine reported on Thursday.

Why Did Analysts Turn Bearish on Qualcomm Post-Fiscal 2Q18?
Thu, 03 May 2018 14:34:07 +0000
Analysts have turned slightly bullish on Intel (INTC) because of strength in the data center business, but they’ve become a little bearish on Qualcomm (QCOM) even though its fiscal 2Q18 earnings (for the period that ended March 25, 2018) beat analysts’ consensus estimate. What caught analysts’ attention was Qualcomm’s patent licensing division, from which it earns the majority of its profits. Qualcomm has guided QTL (Qualcomm Technology Licensing) revenue of $950 million for fiscal 3Q18, which is ~$250 million lower than analysts’ estimate of $1.3 billion. This lower revenue guidance is the result of the new licensing framework the company announced on its fiscal 2Q18 earnings call.
