INTC took a hit from the perception that DELL will be offering AMD chips. The server business is what concerns some. My feeling is that the new Mac business will easily make up for such a shortfall. There is some risk so I might bail on the INTC options and re-enter, especially if we get a nice pullback before earnings.

4-Week T-bill Auction ... DJ - The U.S. Treasury awarded $8.00 billion in four-week bills at Tuesday's auction at a high rate of 4.070%.

The Treasury received bids totaling $30.28 billion and accepted $8.00 billion, including $205.71 million of noncompetitive tenders. The dollar price was 99.683444 and the investment rate, or bond-equivalent return, was 4.140%.

The Treasury received no tenders from foreign and international monetary authority accounts on a noncompetitive bidding basis.

The bid-to-cover ratio, an indication of demand, was 3.79, Treasury said.

Tenders submitted at the high yield were allotted 10.09%.

The Federal Reserve purchased $3.46 billion in bills for its own account. When the auction was announced, the Fed held $16.71 billion of maturing bills, and in Monday's auction the Fed purchased $13.25 billion in three- and six-month bills.

The bills awarded to the Federal Reserve are in addition to the public offering amount.

The median rate was 4.050%; that is, 50% of the amount of accepted competitive bids were tendered at or below that rate.

Of the competitive bids accepted, 5% were tendered at or below the rate of 4.020%.

The high rate was up from 3.965% at the previous four-week bill auction.

The high rate was the highest ever for the four-week bills, which Treasury began auctioning in July 2001.

The issue is dated Jan. 12 and matures on Feb. 9, 2006.

Midday News Update:

The major averages show a mixed trade after a lower open that was partially spurred by profit taking after the Dow Industrials (INDU) 11,008 -0.03% achieved the psychological 11,000 level for the first time since June 2001.

Dow component Alcoa (AA) $29.51 -3.56% kicked off the earnings season with disappointing quarterly results, but has managed to ease off its morning lows of $28.40 and regain its rising 21-day SMA ($29.19).

Copper giant Phelps Dodge (PD) $146.33 -5.27% has also managed to reverse from a morning low of $138.00 to recapture its rising 21-day SMA ($145.55) after the company slashed its earnings forecast for the fourth quarter by more than 70%. The copper producer said results have been hurt by production and sales shortfalls of copper and molybdenum, price hedges and a range of special items. Phelps executives said they now expect earnings of $1.00 to $1.30 per share including charges, down from a prior view of $4.15 to $4.40.

Acquisition news found shares of Hughes Supply (HUG) $45.55 +18.15% surging after Dow component Home Depot (HD) $41.92 +2.69% said it would pay $3.2 billion, roughly $46.50 per share for the distributor of construction, repair and maintenance products. The pending purchase will create the nation's largest diversified distributor of construction, repair and maintenance-related products, and the two companies will serve a $410 billion market, said Home Depot spokeswoman Paula Smith. Home Depot said it expects the deal to be accretive to earnings within its first year.

General Motors (GM) $22.44 +0.13% posts a modest advance after the automaker said it plans to slash prices on 57 of its 76 models, moving away from heavy incentives that confuse buyers and take a bite out of profits. GM said the average price reduction will be $1,300, with cuts as high as $3,000.

Apple Computer (AAPL) $81.08 +6.61% jolted to a 52-week high after the company's CEO Steve Jobs said the company shipped 14 million iPods in the recent holiday quarter, up from 4.5 million a year ago, driving revenue to $5.7 billion. Analysts expected revenue of $5.04 billion, and a recent Goldman Sachs research report predicted Apple would sell 11.6 million iPods. Apple also announced a radio remote add-on for iPods priced at $49.

Economic data showed a 0.4% rise in wholesale inventories for November to a seasonally adjusted $358.65 billion, which was inline with economists' forecast. Sales fell 0.7%, the sharpest drop in more than two years on lower energy prices.

Dateline WSJ -- General Motors Corp. on Tuesday announced plans to slash prices on most of its models as part of an effort to more accurately reflect what consumers are willing to pay and move away from the heavy incentives that confuse buyers and take a bite out of the auto maker's profits.

GM is trimming sticker prices across the board on its top-selling Chevrolet brand, as well as on vehicles produced under the GMC and Buick names. Prices will also be slashed on certain vehicles produced by the company's Pontiac and Cadillac divisions. In total, 57 of GM's 76 models will be eligible for discounts.

The average price reduction on eligible vehicles will be $1,300, with cuts as high as $3,000 on some vehicles, Mark LaNeve, head sales and marketing for GM, said at a press conference. He said that incentives will still be offered, but that they are expected to be lower than what is currently available.

Jonathan Levinson : 1/10/2006 11:25:08 AM

QQQQ still hasn't broken yesterday's low. The 30 and 60 min cycles are in ongoing synchronous downphases with room to run before reaching oversold, but so far the traction has been weak since the opening bell. The short cycle could go either way from here, but is showing a small bullish Macd divergence off the second low. Link Until we start seeing some of those long vertical sell candles, which we haven't yet, it's safe to say that the daily cycle upphase is not over, and the 30/60 min downphases are so far looking corrective within it.

Alcoa said earnings were hurt by charges of $93 million, or $0.11 a share due hurricane activity slowing output from its Jamaica and Texas refineries, while an unplanned outage at the big Portland, Australia, smelter and a strike by workers at facilities in Spain also hampered production.
