Needham & Co. Reiterates “Buy” Rating on Intel Following NVIDIA Deal (INTC)

Computer processor maker Intel Corporation ( INTC ) on Tuesday saw its “Buy” rating reiterated by analysts at Needham & Co., following the company’s licensing fee agreement with graphics chip maker NVIDIA ( NVDA ). The firm also backed its $26 price target on INTC, which implies a 26% upside to the stock’s Monday closing price of $20.69. A Needham analyst commented, “We believe the $1.5B licensing fee, payable to NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA) in six annual installments, is financially a good price for Intel for such technology and has limited financial impact on INTC’s earnings. We are slightly altering our estimates to reflect the licensing payments, and reiterate our rating…The amortization impacts 2011 GM and EPS by 39bps and $0.02, respectively, bringing our 2011 EPS estimate to $1.88 from $1.90. Our 2012 EPS estimate is revised to $2.12 from $2.15 and our GM assumption falls 49bps to 65.6%.” Intel shares were mostly flat in premarket trading Tuesday. The Bottom Line Shares of Intel Corp ( INTC ) have a 3.48% dividend yield, based on last night’s closing stock price of $20.69. The stock has technical support in the $19 price area. If the shares can firm up, we see overhead resistance around the $22-$23 price levels.

Then, Google ( GOOG ) came along and Microsoft missed the entire search engine revolution. But Microsoft still dominated in software. Then came Apple ( AAPL ) with its iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Again, Microsoft missed the small device revolution. The Wall Street Journal reports that now Microsoft is playing catch-up again. With its next operating system it will use low-powered chips similar to those Apple uses.

Zacks’ Voice of the People Highlights user Vet67to82: “Investing in unique – the TERMINATOR line” from the People & Picks community. For more Voice of the People, visit http://at.zacks.com/?id=5851 Featured Post Investing in unique – the “TERMINATOR” line When it comes to investing, the money clearly flows to companies with unique products that the competition can NOT readily replicate, or match. Like Apple, Inc. ( AAPL ), Hewlett-Packard ( HPQ ) is a company that keeps producing products the competition is hard pressed to copy and match. You have to read this: H.P. Sees a Revolution in Memory Chip By JOHN MARKOFF, NEW YORK TIMES – Published: April 7, 2010 HP has been reporting interesting info in their advances on memristors. The above article reports on memristors, advances in the design ” … of a new class of diminutive switches capable of replacing transistors as computer chips shrink closer to the atomic scale.” New chips that ” … hold out the prospect of fashioning analog computing systems that function more like biological brains.” “Biological” is the doomsday stuff of endless sci-fi movies, computers that can have independent thought, … independent decision making capability … computers and memristors … hmmmm! Look at “creations” the movie industry came up with are “real” products now … like the “jet pack” from “Buck Rogers,” etc. But the biggest achievement is hidden: ” … that they had devised a new method for storing and retrieving information from a vast three-dimensional array of memristors. The scheme could potentially free designers to stack thousands of switches in a high-rise fashion, permitting a new class of ultradense computing devices even after two-dimensional scaling reaches fundamental limits.” This is a wow … that could have Intel ( INTC ), AMD ( AMD ), Nvidia ( NVDA ), IBM ( IBM ), Apple, etc. running to HPQ …. and the rest of us “sci-fi” fans stocking up on ammo …. maybe HPQ will name their new chips the “TERMINATOR” line … catchy isn’t it?
