    Market recap: Stocks cut losses, then fell back again, after the Fed said it will reinvest proceeds from maturing MBS into the Treasury market. Tech stocks slumped after a report seeing a glut in PC components, hurting Intel (INTC) and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) and dragging down the Nasdaq more than 1%. NYSE decliners led advancers nearly four to one.

    The “Fed said good things,” Jim Cramer says, so it's OK to "buy.” Bernanke “is not the problem,” he says; “It’s a Congress” focused on legislation that “cuts profitability.” Cramer also backs Bob Doll’s buy call on Intel (INTC -3.6%) below $20 as long as the company doesn’t pre-announce a shortfall within the next two weeks.

    The FTC will announce detailed terms of its settlement with Intel (INTC) at a press conference tomorrow morning. The chipmaker had been charged with systematic anticompetitive tactics, and the settlement isn't monetary but related to practices.

    Market recap: Stocks steadied after initially dropping on the Fed's lower projections for U.S. economic growth and joblessness, with the Dow - by a hair - running its winning streak to seven sessions. Intel's (INTC +1.7%) earnings beat lifted tech stocks and helped the Nasdaq to a modest gain. NYSE decliners led advancers by about three to two.

    Intel (INTC) says Q2 was the "best quarter in the company's 42-year history," and the numbers don't lie: EPS, sales and margins all crushed estimates, and Q3 guidance was raised far above expectations. "The key reason everybody missed on it is - as they've been talking about for eight months - cloud infrastructure is just started," one analyst gushes, adding that the stock is "underpriced." INTC +6.7% AH.

    Key ETF pair to watch ahead of INTC's earnings after today's close: USD/SSG. Intel's Q1 beat sent ProShares Ultra Semiconductors ETF (USD) up nearly 8% the next day, while ProShares UltraShort Semiconductors ETF (SSG) should provide significant upside if INTC disappoints. INTC makes up 35% of both USD's and SSG's total portfolio.

    James Altucher loves his Apple (AAPL -2.1%) gadgets, but headline risk from the iPhone4 antenna problem prompts him to endorse three other tech stocks: 02Micro (OIIM +7.8%), which does the LED lighting for iPads and currently trades for only two times cash; KLA-Tencor (KLAC +4.1%), which will benefit from Intel's (INTC) growth; and Yahoo (YHOO +3.1%), which will win big from its search outsourcing deal with Microsoft (MSFT).
