Intel’s Estimates, Target Lowered at  Needham & Co. (INTC)

Computer processor maker Intel Corporation ( INTC ) on Monday saw its earnings estimates and price target cut by analysts at Needham & Co. The firm reiterated its “Buy” rating on INTC, but cut its price target on the stock from $25 to $23. That new target represents an expected 18% upside to the stock’s Friday closing price of $19.42. A Needham analyst commented, “Consistent with our revised semiconductor industry outlook discussed in our industry report entitled ‘Anticipating A Two Quarter Slowdown,’ we are cutting our forward estimates on Intel to reflect weaker than expected demand in the computing and consumer end markets and inventory reduction actions by the supply chain into year-end. With a vast majority of its revenue derived from consumer PCs, we believe the company will experience reduced order rates and lower sales through 1Q11.” Intel shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Monday. The Bottom Line We had removed shares of INTC from our recommended list back on June 8, 2010, when the stock was trading at $20.31. The company has a 3.24% dividend yield, based on Friday’s closing stock price of $19.42. The stock has technical support in the $16-$17 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $21-$22 price levels. We would remain on the sidelines for now. Intel Corporation ( INTC ) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.

(TRV) “Income-hungry investors have spoken, and they have chosen bonds as their investment of choice,” notes dividend expert Chuck Carlson , who prefers to look to blue chip stocks for potential capital gains and income growth. The editor of The DRIP Investor explains, “In 2009, a record $375 billion of new money flooded into bond funds. Over the same period, domestic stock funds saw $40 billion go out the door. And through the first half of 2010, taxable bond funds had net new cash flow of $136 billion versus outflows of $18.4 billion for domestic stock funds. This torrent of money has driven down the yields on bonds to microscopic levels. “The upshot is that, on a relative basis, dividend-paying stocks seem quite cheap compared to bonds.

Intel to Buy Infineon’s Wireless Unit for $1.4 Billion (INTC)

Computer processor giant Intel Corporation ( INTC ) said Monday that it will buy Infineon Technologies’ wireless chip unit for $1.4 billion in cash. The move follows Intel’s surprise announcement last week that it would acquire antivirus software maker McAfee for $7.68 billion. Infineon makes wireless chips for devices like laptops and mobile phones, including Apple’s iPhone. Intel CEO Paul Otellini said in a statement that “wireless connectivity continues to grow at an extraordinary rate.” The deal is expected to close in the first quarter of 2011, and Intel said it will maintain the wireless unit as a standalone business. Intel shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Monday. The Bottom Line We had removed shares of INTC from our recommended list back on June 8, 2010, when the stock was trading at $20.31. The company has a 3.43% dividend yield, based on Friday’s closing stock price of $18.37. The stock has technical support in the $16-$17 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $21-$22 price levels. We would remain on the sidelines for now.

Intel CEO Bodyslams Big Government

Here’s a thought to start off your weekend. People that can do —do. People that can’t do— only work to get in their way. Thats’ the bottom line in this piece as Intel CEO Paul Otellini explains why Big Government isn’t the answer. From CNET News by Declan McCullagh entitled: Intel CEO: U.S. faces looming tech decline “ Intel Chief Executive Officer Paul Otellini offered a depressing set of observations about the economy and the Obama administration Monday evening, coupled with a dark commentary on the future of the technology industry if nothing changes. The U.S. legal environment has become so hostile to business, Otellini said, that there is likely to be “an inevitable erosion and shift of wealth, much like we’re seeing today in Europe—this is the bitter truth.” Otellini singled out the political state of affairs in Democrat-dominated Washington, saying: “I think this group does not understand what it takes to create jobs. And I think they’re flummoxed by their experiment in Keynesian economics not working.” Since an unusually sharp downturn accelerated in late 2008, the Obama administration and its allies in the U.S. Congress have enacted trillions in deficit spending they say will create an economic stimulus but have not extended the Bush tax cuts and have pushed to levy extensive new health care and carbon regulations on businesses. “They’re in a ‘Do’ loop right now trying to figure out what the answer is,” Otellini said. As a result, he said, “every business in America has a list of more variables than I’ve ever seen …

Filed under: Earnings Reports , Intel (INTC) , Newsletters , Stocks to Buy “Two downgrades were just issued for Intel ( INTC ); these downgrades are based on the contention that, in so many words, INTC will fail to realize its revenue guidance for its third quarter,” says Paul McWilliams , adding, “But I think that these analyst will be proven wrong.” The tech sector specialist and editor of Next Inning explains, “Revenue estimates provided by these analysts for all of the last five quarters have been less accurate than what you would expect if you simply pulled random numbers from a fruit jar. And, in each case, their estimates have radically underestimated INTC’s performance.

Auriga Trims Price Target for Intel, but Maintains “Buy” Rating (INTC)

Computer processor king Intel Corporation ( INTC ) saw its price target lowered on Thursday by analysts at Auriga. The firm cut its target for INTC from $27 to $25, ahead of the company’s earnings results, which are set to be delivered on July 13. That new price target represent a potential 25% upside to the stock’s Wednesday closing price of $20.14. Despite the price target cut, Aurgia still maintained its “Buy” rating on INTC, commenting “We continue to see INTC’s Nehalem for server as one of the strongest product cycles in semiconductors, and because of this we prefer INTC stock to that of both its customers and semiconductor peers. However, recent weakness in PC build plans combined with what we see as overly-optimistic consensus numbers temper our enthusiasm — we thus lower our valuation multiple to reflect risk to estimates.” Intel shares rose 20 cents, or +1%, in premarket trading Thursday. The Bottom Line Shares of INTC have a dividend yield of 3.13%, based on last night’s closing stock price of $20.14. The stock has technical support in the $16 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $22 price level. We would remain on the sidelines for now.
