It's time for a minor mea culpa. On last night's show Jim talked about the lack of pin action off of Hewlett-Packard's positive earnings preannouncement. We concluded that good news for Hewlett-Packard couldn't be extrapolated to the rest of tech because we'd heard so much bad news and so many negative forecasts, for example from Intel spacer. Then I, like a doofus, went and wrote a post about pin action, or more specifically the lack thereof.
Dell reported earnings that declined 5 percent but easily exceeded expectations, sending its shares higher in late trading.
As Cliff Mason noted earlier today, Cramer likes to talk about "pin action" a lot -- the effect that one company's good fortune usually has on other, related companies (parts manufacturers, for example).

Cramer's prediction yesterday that tech hasn't seen bottom yet and was due for more beating came true today, with most big tech names ending lower. One of the most beaten-down of these companies was AMD. Still, even with the dismal tech sector in the dismal overall market, there's still money to be made IF you're willing to speculate on battered stocks like -- you got it -- AMD. But "battered" doesn't even do this company justice: it's down 67% for the year and had another bloody session today.

There was a time not too long ago when Hewlett-Packard simply became "HP." I'm not talking about the "HP" it's always been known as, but "HP" as the official new name of the company, supplanting Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, and joining the ranks of KFC as a company running the risk of forgetting history for the sake of convenience and short-hand.
