Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) surged 4,93% on Tuesday’s trading session closed at $49,39 after activist investor Dan Loeb revealed that he has built a position in Intel Corp. and is urging the company to explore strategic alternatives, including a possible breakup of the chipmaker and the sale of assets. Intel said in a statement that it welcomed input from all investors to create shareholder value, and looked forward to engaging with Third Point toward that goal. Intel has missed this year’s Nasdaq rally as its biggest clients moved away and setting up their own chip making departments. Stocks are down 17,48 for the year.
