Remember the Last Time Intel Reported?

All eyes are on Intel (INTC) this evening as the company is one of the first bellweather names to report earnings.

The last time Intel reported, on July 14th, the NASDAQ exploded, with a gap up and 3.5% gain for the composite the following day.

Nothing in last month’s report means anything as far as forecasting this one, but I think it is important to keep in mind how big the reaction can be for the rest of the market, good or bad, when Intel speaks. 

Here’s what I said in reaction to that report:

And a Chipmaker Shall Lead Us… (TRB)

Good luck if you’re playing…
