SHUN APPLE, BUY INTEL?
Apple traded sharply lower on Wednesday after the company missed estimates for the first time in 7 years.
Meanwhile Intel made gains after the company forecast sales that exceeded expectations due to strong demand for laptop computers in emerging markets.
Should you rotate out of Apple and into Intel?
Guy Adami wouldn’t. “The Intel story is great but I worry about the technicals. The stock is near the $25 level and that was the high in May of 2008. It’s probably strong resistance.”
