There's a huge growth in the middle of your rear end I believe.
Pull your shorts down, bend over, and check it out in the mirror.
You will see the growth.
As for Intel, they are doing just fine and have a very healthy business
producing the best computing processors in the world.
The absolute best!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Intel Corp.’s lackluster first quarter results were on target with its previously reduced guidance, as the chip giant was hit by sluggish demand for PCs, but a bigger surprise was a far larger-than-expected cut in its capital spending forecast.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
What losses? Intel's doing great, you're not.
and the rest will be split among Qualcomm, mediate and others.
According to digitimes, Intel is helping Chinese companies make cheaper and cheaper tablets. LOL. No place for ARM in cheap tablets.
Jefferies projects Intel stock to trade at around the $48 mark in the next 12 months
In a research note issued on Thursday, Jefferies reported that it anticipates a 50% upside to Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) stock price. The reason cited by the firm was that the company is expected to ship cellular system on a chip (SoCs) integrated circuits with China-based RockChip and Spreadtrum by the second-half of calendar year 2015 (2HCY15). The firm reiterated a Buy rating with a price target of $48 on the stock.
Another Jefferies analyst, Sandeep Bajikar, hinted that a technology breakthrough in 3D NAND could give Intel and Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU) a cost advantage, allowing them to capture bigger share of profits than they have historically. Micron Technology and Intel are using “different flavor” of NAND (floating gate) versus Samsung Elect Ltd (F) (OTCMKTS:SSNLF) and SK Hynix’s charge flash trap.
The ASUS Zenfone 2, a phone first introduced to the world waaaaaaay back at CES in January, is finally arriving on US soil. During a press event that took place this morning in NYC to announce US availability, ASUS said that it would go on sale starting tomorrow for $199 and $299 at retailers like Amazon and Newegg.
As a recap, the Zenfone 2 is a high-end-like phone with an extremely affordable price. ASUS is selling it as an unlocked device that should run just fine on AT&T and T-Mobile’s LTE networks. The Zenfone 2 features a 5.5-inch FHD (1080p) display that takes up 72% of the phone’s front, Gorilla Glass 3, has 2GB ($199) or 4GB ($299) RAM, 16GB or 64GB of storage with microSD slot, 3,000mAh battery with quick charging (60% in 39 mins), 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop. It’s also powered by either a 2.3GHz or 1.8GHz 64-bit Intel Atom quad-core processor. The $299 4GB version of the phone comes with the 2.3GHz Intel Z3580, while the $199 2GB version comes with the 1.8GHz Z3560.
For that price, you are looking at a hella of a phone.
Again, the Zenfone 2 goes on sale in the US tomorrow at Amazon, Newegg, B&H Photo, and Groupon.
Too bad the Altera buy out was a cash deal. Seem we paid for it twice. 17 billion in stock holder equity has been lost since last Monday. Now we have to borrow 16 billion to actually buy them. Wonder who is the biggest problem at INTC. The CFO, CEO. investor relations, public relations, senior management or the BOD. You would think someone at INTC has to be competent enough to explain the deal in a favorable light and stem the rout. How about buying all these shares that are being dumped? with a 3% dividend, they could borrow 100 billion and buy the shares on the open market an not cost them a cent. Again, they don't seem to have anyone who can think at INTC. God, I hope somebody sees how stupid this is and buys out INTC. Even with a posion pill, they would get my shares with the way they are running this company.
ARMH up over three percent and over $50. Intel trying to hang onto unchanged. Is it Wally who's in the fetal position in the woodshed this morning? Interesting that ARMH gets the bump from the Intel/Altera rumor.
Intel is racing with market leader Qualcomm to be the first to production with a Category 10 LTE-Advanced baseband. Intel’s new four-chip XMM 7360 platform supports three-carrier aggregation (3xCA) on the downlink and 2xCA on the uplink, resulting in peak data rates of 450Mbps down and 100Mbps up. These speeds match those of Qualcomm’s 9245 modem, which we expect in commercial devices midyear.
Intel’s new modem matches many other features of the 9245. The five-mode design includes FD-LTE, TD-LTE, and TD-SCDMA for compatibility with China Mobile as well as other operators around the world. It can aggregate TDD and FDD spectrum simultaneously. The chip and its software support Release 11 features such as voice-over-LTE (VoLTE), self-organizing networks (SONs), and LTE broadcast (eMBMS). It also handles dual LTE SIM cards in standby mode (DSDS).
The XMM 7360 platform includes the X-Gold 736 baseband processor and the X-PMU 736 for power management, plus two RF chips: the Smarti 5 RF transceiver and the Smarti 5c. As with previous cellular chips, Intel outsources manufacturing; the X-Gold 736 and Smarti 5 chips both use TSMC’s 28nm processes.
Intel’s Category 6 LTE platform, the XMM 7260, is currently shipping in some models of the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4 smartphones. According to VentureBeat, Apple will use the XMM 7360 in a 2016-model iPhone. Intel’s former-Infineon unit supplied 2G baseband chips for early iPhones but lost the socket to Qualcomm when Apple added CDMA support in 2011.
Intel says the XMM 7360 will arrive sometime in the second half, hot on Qualcomm’s heels. The company now provides a strong alternative for standalone LTE modems, offering similar performance and capabilities on a schedule that meets the needs of flagship smartphones and tablets.

Microsoft has already promised new flagship phones, which will debut around the time Windows 10 is launched. Since Windows 10 aims to tie phones, tablets and PCs, the launch of a Surface phone running Windows 10 would complete the list of devices running on Microsoft's new operating system.
Designer Nadir Aslam has now come up with a brilliant new Surface Phone concept with an exquisite design and build quality. The images of the concept design show the Microsoft Surface Phone to be made of a strong and light magnesium alloy (VaporMg) with the premium material making the device appear very attractive, strong and durable. The Microsoft Surface Phone has been shown to feature a built-in kickstand, similar to the Surface Pro tablets, so that users can place the phone on the desk or any flat surface with the stand to watch videos or enjoy video calls with friends and family.
The Microsoft Surface Phone is speculated to feature a 5.7-inch Full HD display along with a Surface Pen and a Touch cover accessory. The device is expected to be powered by an Intel chipset, which will provide sufficient power to multitask easily. The Microsoft Surface Phone's connectivity features include LTE, Bluetooth, NFC, and a micro HDMI connector, which can be used to hook up the phone to a bigger display and enjoy a full PC experience.
From ECUMENICAL NEWS
Things are looking very promising. We'll kick things off with the Windows 10 release. Now is the time time to be planning some incremental buys leading into the second half of the year.
ARM has a significant headwind as mobility matures and fabrication continues in crisis.
Intel has many tailwinds now.
When it comes to bad math, Wall St. is the best there is. INTC during their conference call guided to essentially a flat year over 2015. This would lead you to believe that the EPS should be the same as 2014. If that were true, we should expect about 2.20/ share. The S&P is trading at 19.2 times 2016 earnings. INTC is projected to earn 2.40/ share in 2016. Taking 19.2 times 2015 earnings of 2.20/ share = 42.24/share. If you take 19.2 times earnings times 2.40/ share for 2016 earnings, you get 46.08/ share. These are prices for the adv. S&P 500 companies. Now let’s add 1.5 billion capex cut for 2015 and an 800 million reduction in mobile losses. Divide that by roughly 5 billion shares outstanding and you get 2.3 billion dollars divided by 5 billion shares = .46/ share that no one is talking about. Take that .46/share and multiply it times 19.2 for the adv. S&P earnings and you get 8.83/share. Add 2015 projected earnings of 2.20/share, plus the .46/share and presto you have 2.66/ share. Take 2.66/share and multiply it by 19.2 times earnings and you get 51.07/share. It gets even better if you use 2016 earnings of 2.40/ share plus 1.5 billion reduction in capex and 4 billion reduction in mobile losses. The 1.5 billion plus the 4 billion = 5.5 billion divided by 5 billion shares = 1.10/share. Take the 2016 earnings times of 2.40/share and add 1.10/share and you have 3.50/share in 2016. Take 3.50/share and multiply it by 19.2 time earnings and you get 67.20/share. I can only think of 2 reasons we are trading so low. Either INTC is planning on going broke or Wall St. is BS-ing you into selling your shares at a ridiculous low price, so they can buy them and run the price up (they win – you lose).
Can we all flag up any user who posts ARM stock prices on this board. I know its not abuse in the strictest sense but it is polluting this board which should only be for articles / Opinion on Intel.
