Intel Beats, UPS Warns
by Jim Brown

Tech holders are breathing a little better tonight after
Intel beat street estimates slightly. However, the broader
market may focus on dropping package volume at UPS as real
evidence the economy is slowing. It is still too early to
form any opinions about this earnings cycle from the mix
of warnings and guidance but that info is coming soon. 

Dow Charts

 
Nasdaq Chart

 
SOX Chart

 


The cautiously awaited Intel earnings beat the street by 
two cents with the highest ever quarterly revenue at $9.6B.
Intel projected a slight rise in CapEx spending for Q1 to
around $5.1B. Inventory levels had dropped slightly to 
$2.6B from $3.2B last quarter. They projected slightly 
lower grow margins around 55% in Q1 as they continue to
markdown inventory. Their 2005 margin estimate remains 
58% and Intel expects the inventory problem to be reduced
over the next several quarters. CEO, Craig Barrett, said
they ended the quarter with robust demand across all
geographies. Records were set in sales of Microprocessors,
Chipsets, Motherboards and WiFi units. 

There were mixed feelings about the $600 million drop in
inventory. Many analysts were hoping for more. This is 
inventory that in many cases is already 6-12 months old
and is becoming more obsolete as each day passes. If Intel
could not dump more of it during the Q4 consumer feeding
frenzy then they may have to mark down selling prices even 
more in 2005 or even take a charge to blow it out and get
rid of the problem. 

Intel said the new 64bit Xeon processors had surpassed
one million units in the first two quarters of shipments.
Intel also announced it was hiring the HP Itanium design
team and HP announced it was going to spend $3 billion to
drive the development and sales of its Itanium based server
systems. Itanium processors now power 83 of the top 500
of the worlds fastest supercomputers with Intel branded
processors in 64% of the top 500. 

The positive Intel earnings came only a day after AMD 
warned that earnings would be below expectations. The
company said that weaker sales of flash memory would
cause earnings to be down significantly from the Q3
level of $68.4 million. They claimed that processor 
sales had continued higher and would be over Q3 levels.
AMD did not give a new earnings estimate and analysts
had expected a +19 cent profit. 

On the downside tonight UPS warned after the bell that
slower than expected package volume and higher costs
would cause it to miss estimates by a dime for Q4. The
prior estimate was 85 cents. They said late December 
shipments dropped significantly more than they previously
expected and were only about half the prior rate for 
the quarter. UPS said that international shipments grew
at a double digit rate compared to a +2.5% growth for
domestic shipments. The market did not react strongly 
to the warning with UPS only losing about -$2 in after
hours to $81. They maintained their positive outlook 
for all of 2005 expecting earnings to increase +13% to
+17%. All of 2004 UPS grew earnings by +19%. 

One stock that continues to shock investors is TASR which
has finally run out of energy. Problems are now appearing
almost daily including SEC investigations, suits by their
competitors and now an earnings warning from Taser itself. 
Taser said it is expecting delays in orders from law
enforcement agencies as those agencies test and evaluate 
products from their competitors. It was also announced that
the top insiders sold $105.8 million in stock recently and
there were some questionable financial arrangements to
insiders. It was disclosed that the company paid $205K
in 2004 to lease airplanes from the family that runs the
company and entered a 15 year lease to use another plane
that is owned by Thomas Smith, the president. In one 
week in November three family members sold $54 million
in stock only days after it was announced the federal
government had approved Taser for use on airlines.  While
all of this dirt being spread by detractors is not illegal
activities it does pose questions about the long term
prospects if insiders are dumping the stock. With positive
news breaking out all over in Q4 the insiders sold stock
worth more than 10% of the market cap of the company
receiving the equivalent of twice the companies annual
sales in proceeds. Those recent buyers who believed the 
spin were rewarded with a drop from $33 to $14 over the
last two weeks of trading. Competitors to Taser claiming
to have better products are Stinger Systems (STIY) and
Law Enforcement Associates (LENF). LENF claims their 
guns shoot twice as far and use 1/16th the power making
them less dangerous. They have also been around much 
longer than Taser in the law enforcement community. 

TASR Chart

 


Economically today was a non-event with Chain Store Sales
falling -0.6% but that should be no surprise given the post
holiday letdown. The December Richmond Fed Manufacturing 
Survey rose to zero from a -3 in November. There was no
real change in components with shipments and new orders
flat. The backlog of orders also returned to nearly flat
at -4. The bottom line was no change and no excitement as
the year came to a close. Capacity utilization decreased
and the only positive was a continued rise in optimism by
manufacturers for the next six months. The Richmond district
has been lagging the rest of the company in its recovery. 

The next day for material economic reports is Friday when
we get PPI, Industrial Production, Consumer Sentiment and
Business Inventories. 

Oil prices continue to creep higher and closed just shy
of $46 today on fears of increasing Iraqi attacks, work
stoppages in Nigeria, well problems in the North Sea and
the coming OPEC meeting on Jan-30th. $46 has been a new
resistance level since Dec-1st but the pressure is building.
Traders fear OPEC will ratchet down production again at
the coming meeting to offset the potential drop in demand
as cold weather ends. During the spring there is less
demand for heating oil and the summer gasoline demand has
not yet increased. Rumors are that OPEC has decided to 
support a $45 price now instead of $40. Once addicted to
an increasing supply of dollars it is tough to break the
habit if you control half the worlds supply of a limited
commodity. They have found that the sticker shock has
passed and we have become more or less immune to the 
current $42 bottom. 

PeopleSoft employees got the bad news today. Oracle said
today they would be announcing the first round of layoffs
at PSFT as a result of the Oracle takeover. This should 
come as no shock as rumor has it employees are already 
leaving in droves on their own accord. The layoff 
announcement is scheduled for Friday.

The SOX was the index of the day with a drop below 400 on
the AMD news and in fear that Intel could stumble after the
close. The index held 396 all afternoon despite selling in
several chip stocks. After Intel's earnings report the chip
sector saw a muted bounce but nothing earth shaking. The
analysts community had been making positive comments about
expectations for Intel for the last week so much of the
good news may have been priced into the market. That news
was shaken yesterday with the AMD announcement but support
at 22.40 on Intel continued to hold. 

I was going to title this part tonight as "Danger Will
Robinson" after the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P all closed at a
new low for the year. After hearing the various spins on
the Intel earnings as well as Andy Bryant bubbling over
with excitement it is possible the market losses are 
almost over. Those three key indexes are still well above
my critical levels I mentioned on Sunday and are still
technically bullish despite closing at the lows for the
year. 

The Dow closed just above its 50-day average at 10556
with the S&P closing drop putting it about -2 points under
its 50-day at 1185. The Nasdaq is well under the 50 at 
2106 and tested support at 2075 today for the second time
this year. For tomorrow that 2075 level would be my key.
As long as we stay over that level the market could attract
buyers. The SOX should rally back over 400 at the open and
it MUST hold that level from now on to avoid a tech meltdown.

S&P-500 Chart

 

We have already sold off more than I initially expected
but as I stated above the charts are still bullish with
only a normal correction at this point. Until the Dow 
moves under 10425 and the Nasdaq 2000 that bullish bias
will remain. Obviously that is a lot lower than our current
levels and it would require some serious pain to make that
trip. With the Intel news tonight and the potential for
further retirement cash to flow into the market I would
look for SPX 1175 to be the more critical line on the 
charts. Nasdaq 2075 for techs and S&P 1175 for the broader
market. I would not be a dip buyer under 1175. I would wait
for the market to come back to us at that level if you are
determined to be long. 

We are reaching a critical turning point in the markets. 
There needs to be some attempt to rally very soon or the
market sentiment will begin to change rapidly. Bulls are
beginning to get nervous and bears are getting bolder. It
is time for the 2005 bull market to assert itself and make
a stand or it is going to be a long year for investors.

WATCH LIST
==================================================================

The PremierInvestor.net watch list is not designed to be read
as full fledged stock picks.  Rather we would prefer to offer
it as an extra tool in today's investor toolbox.  Think of it
as a radar screen with your own radar operator pointing out
interesting developments, technical patterns or potential plays
that you may or may not have seen on your own.  Due to time
constraints we do glance at the news but rarely do we have
time to fully read pertinent news stories, due background
research and other necessary screens that investors should do
before making a decision.  A common exercise is to read the
entry, glance at the sector and other stocks in that industry
and then compare what's happening in the stock to what's
happening in the broader market indices.  We hope you enjoy
the Watch List and that it proves to be a useful tool for your
own trading success.

STOCKS WORTH WATCHING
---------------------------------

Autodesk - ADSK - close: 32.39 change: -1.85

WHAT TO WATCH: ADSK was a huge winner in 2004 and is now seeing 
some profit taking in January.  The breakdown under the 50-dma 
looks like a short opportunity but ADSK still has some minor 
support near the $32 level.  If shares break the $32 level we 
might watch for a drop towards the 100-dma near $28.  ADSK found 
support at the 100-dma back in August. 




---

VeriSign - VRSN - close: 30.44 change: -0.39 

WHAT TO WATCH: VRSN broke support at the $30.00 level on Monday 
but managed a sharp intraday bounce.  That bounce failed today at 
the 50-dma and the stock still looks poised for more weakness, 
especially considering how extended the stock is from its pre-
October levels.  Look for the breakdown under $30 and target the 
100-dma near $25.50-26.00.




---

Quicksilver Resources - KWK - close: 37.40 change: +1.58

WHAT TO WATCH: The relative strength in KWK this week is 
encouraging.  Bulls can take note of the consistent trend of 
higher lows.  We also see the above average volume with today's 
4.4 percent gain.  Watch for a breakout over $38.00 as a 
potential entry point to go long. 






-----------------------------------
RADAR SCREEN - more stocks to watch
-----------------------------------

HUM $31.18 +0.53 - We mentioned HUM as a potential bullish play 
if shares could break the $31 level.  The stock did that today in 
the face of a market pull back.

CVS $47.11 +1.10 - The slow, long-term trend higher in CVS looks 
like a potential investment or a covered-call candidate.  Use the 
$44 level as support.

JDSU $2.76 -0.14 - JDSU just lost another 4.8 percent but managed 
a decent rebound from the $2.61 level intraday.  This is a one-
year low.  Watch to see if traders buy the dip or let it sink 
under the $2.50 level. 

SIRI $6.10 -0.52 - The oversold bounce in SIRI is failing and 
shares are testing the $6.00 mark again.  A drop under $6.00 and 
traders could target a fall toward $5.00 and its 100-dma.

Market Sentiment

Not Looking Good
- J. Brown


January has already been a tough month for stocks.  Unfortunately 
the first day of fourth quarter earnings season did not go well 
and it does not bode well for the rest of the month either.  The 
market ended the session in widespread decline with internals 
heading south once again.  Declining stocks outnumbered advancers 
by 2-to-1 on the NYSE and 21-to-9 on the NASDAQ.  Down volume 
swallowed up volume 7-to-2 on the NYSE and 17-to-5 on the NASDAQ.  

Dow-component Alcoa (AA) started the procession with an earnings 
miss and biotech giant Genentech (DNA) followed up with an 
earnings miss of its own.  To make matters worse semiconductor 
maker AMD issued a fourth quarter earnings warning that sent its 
stock for a 26 percent loss and pushed the SOX to a 2.4 percent 
decline.  After the closing bell AMD's larger rival Intel (INTC) 
surprised the street with a better than expected earnings report 
but it remains to be seen if Intel can jump start a rally amidst 
all of this negativity.  Case in point - after Intel's report 
came out package courier UPS issued a fourth quarter earnings 
warning.  

Investors already had cautious expectations for earnings growth 
going forward but if the lead-off companies are going to turn in 
disappointing results what can we expect during the rest of 
earnings season.  Granted the real flood of earnings news doesn't 
hit until next week but we now have a reason to be spooked.  

Meanwhile oil continues to be an issue as crude prices creep 
higher amid supply concerns again and the upcoming Iraqi 
elections, which is bound to bring about even more violence in 
that part of the world.

  Announcements:        None

Trading Ideas
  Value Plays With Bullish Signals

Stop Loss Adjustments
==================================================================

VSEA - tech stock short - $30.16 (-0.51)
   Heads up!  This is a decision time for VSEA traders.  The stock
   is very close to our target at the $30.00 level.  Today's 2.4 
percent drop in the SOX and negative news from AMD did a lot to 
help pull VSEA lower.  Unfortunately, now INTC turned in a 
surprisingly bullish earnings report after the bell.  Will the SOX 
continue lower or will semiconductor bears panick on the good INTC 
news?  Readers need to decide now if they want to try and exit near 
the open or wait out what could be an oversold bounce in VSEA.  
   We are lowering our stop loss to $33.53 or breakeven.  If shares
   hit $30.00 or lower tomorrow we're exiting.
 
 
 
PDCO - non-tech long -
  PDCO continues to tick higher and we're raising our stop loss to 
$39.99.
 
 
ACI - non-tech long -
  Watch out - ACI looks ready to test the $33 level again.
 
 
USB - non-tech long -
   This is a crucial test for USB.  Shares are nearing round-number 
support at the $30.00 mark.  Readers can look for the bounce but 
wait for USB to trade back above $30.51 before considering new 
longs.  Right now our concern is the weakness in the BKX and BIX 
banking indices, which both suggesting more declines ahead.  This 
could make it tougher on any USB rebound.
