The chips keep rising. It's been a good couple of months for the semiconductor stocks as demand and pricing improves. Case in point, Micron Tech (MU) the volatile DRAM chip maker is up 2% today on an upgrade from Stifel with an $18 price target. Micron's stock is up 70% from the May lows.

Even the casinos are losing money. The gaming and casino entertainment company, Caesars Entertainment (CZR) is plunging 17% after dropping as much as 28% on news a Chicago bankruptcy judge ruled the company must face bondholders' lawsuits.

The winners in this decision, private equity and a number of billionaire investors like David Tepper. The rich get richer.
