    I thought so too, but perhaps that was only for the fourth quarter. Google is getting pummled, just released earnings 10% below estimates. But I'm doing a happy dance, with INTC shares in hand.

    Great avitar, BTW.

    perhaps because prices are high?

    most chips used to be under $250 but now most are $200 and up

    They lowered their forecast, because they had set rather ambitious goals for themselves. They brought the forecast to a more reasonable number.

    I'm pretty sure adjusted for inflation CPU's have never been cheaper. I have always paid around $150-250 for a CPU, and that applies to various AMD and Intel CPU's.

    Not unless you bought it quite a while ago. It's overvalued at the moment and will likely drop from its current $26 peak soon.

    it make a nice contrast with the official poverty measure in the states

    The official poverty measure is published by the United States Census Bureau and shows that:

    In 2010, 46.9 million people were in poverty, up from 37.3 million in 2007 -- the fourth consecutive annual increase in the number of people in poverty . This is the largest number in the 52 years for which poverty rates have been published (DeNavas-Walt 2011, p. 14).

    And I said have as in several months ago when it was $20 or less. You could have bought this month and "had" stock but it would not have accrued any value as it is at a peak.

    People "in poverty" in the US wear Jordans, The North Face jackets, have iPhones, and buy lobster with their food stamps.

    Out of touch I bet and chooses to look at only the worst.
    Up. Their stock has grown from ~$4.30 per share up to $6.22 per share now. I'd say that's a net increase of 30% in the last 2 months or so.

    GPUs are a fairly tiny part of AMD's revenue. I would say APUs are going to be driving future profits more than any other product, especially since Intel has nothing to compete in that segment. They release earnings next week, and they're expected to beat earnings estimates for the fourth quarter in a row.

    Stock price aside, the 3.40% dividend is a heck of a lot more than banks are paying. Hell, it's even more than a 15 year mortgage costs right now :cool:

    one sided political scare tactic nonsense...not everyone abuses the system. A lot of decent hard working people would not be able to make it without help from the fortunate like us. Who plunk thousand down on overpowered uber machines to mostly play games while john doe across the street work two jobs to feed his family and keep the lights on.
