Thursday’s Factors and Events

Shares of Intel (INTC), which closed Wednesday at $44.74, losing 4.5% in the week, have been under heavy selling pressure ever since reports of a security vulnerability with its CPU chips. The stock on Tuesday lost as much as 2.8% to $43.49 before paring those losses.

Nevertheless, the company’s presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Monday, particularly the keynote issued by CEO Brian Krzanich shows where Intel’s focus is and why the company will bounce back sooner rather than later.
