arrogant or right? Is Intel telling us the market hangs in?

Wow, talk about a question I would love to duck, but can't because pros can't duck.

TheStreet Recommends

We think Intel works higher. We think it "tells the truth." We want to buy the slip backward here that we now expect. We think that Intel is signalling that we will win.

We are putting money to work in the kinds of names we think come back hardest, the

Red Hots and the

B2Bs.
