Halftime: Gaming the Chip Trade


If you're looking for a hot sector for your trader radar Pete Najarian suggests keeping a close eye on the action in the semi-conductor space.

”We’ve seen a pretty nice push to the upside in the SMH ,” he says. “Yes, it's taken a pause but you’ve gotta’ love the performance.”

Meanwhile, trader Brian Kelly thinks Intel is worth a look. “It’s held up pretty well over the last few days and it pays a pretty good dividend,” he says.

Aside from the dividend and recent performance another reason some traders are long Intel is due to Street chatter suggesting Intel may soon ink a deal to make chips for Apple’s iPad and iPhone.
