So today

Intel

(INTC) - Get Report

plays catch-up. Whenever an analyst on the fence makes a declaration -- in this case

Credit Suisse First Boston

coming out positively about the chipmaker -- the stock gets pizazz. In this new, antiliquidity world, it means that a three-point move turns into a six-point one.

This trading action in Intel is everything I have been talking about writ large. This stock is trading like a

Yahoo!

(YHOO)

or an

Akamai

(AKAM) - Get Report

, not Intel.

Last time Intel got here, I made my fated Intel-goes-to-100 call on our TV

Hmmm, now I know the secret to eating crow: it tastes terrible going down but months later you recall it as a fine repast!

Where's that Intel crow recipe? I need it -- badly.
