  • Intel (INTC:NASD) seems to be guiding down the outlook for their communications group. CEO Craig Barrett offers that Intel will need "a strong flash market" for the segment to turn a profit. Other highlights from the meeting so far: Intel has "recovered from product missteps" that they seem to have confessed to just this morning (not that others didn't notice) and the company is going to focus on "better" vs. "faster" chips." -Jeff Macke on today's Buzz.

  • Jimmy's sweet on you!

  • Crude is dribblin' down 1.5% lower and probing the 200-day moving average for the second time; (it Snapped hard the first).

  • "It's uncanny how cheerful the economic outlook seems to analysts whose ideas are unbaked by any apparent knowledge about the economy. Among the fatuous bits of applesauce dropped from the table of CNBC's monthly employment report was the idea that the inevitable adjustment to the U.S. current account deficit will be good for U.S. growth. The argument is so circular that it's impossible to know where to start." - John Hussman, Hussman Funds

  • The most bullish thing on my screen is the traction in the brokerage names, the slippage in crude and the sticky semis (in the face of Intel (INTC:NASD). The nosty NYSE breadth and sluggish cyclicals (ex-Caterpillar (CAT:NYSE)) remain cause for pause.

  • Cereal killer!
