Among them the guy from Boston who predicted the Dow down 1000 for last Monday. Maybe he'll tell us what happens now that Mali has had "it's 911". You can't make this stuff up.
According to reports, Diane Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's Data Center Group, said during the Structure Conference Nov. 18 that the server chips initially will ship to the largest cloud-scale companies, such as Amazon Web Services, Facebook, Microsoft, Google and Baidu.
EWeek: Intel in the first quarter in 2016 will begin shipping its first Xeon processors with integrated programmable chips, following through on a promise the company made last year.
Enthusiast desktops will be the first to get Intel's new class of Optane products, which could bring much faster SSDs and memory to PCs and phones
If you are surprised about Intel Corp. (NASDAQ: INTC) announcing that it has hiked its dividend again, you haven’t been reading 24/7 Wall St. long enough. Just this week we featured Intel as one of six companies expected to raise their dividends before the end of 2015, but Intel raised its payout a tad more than our base case. Remember that Intel is in the process of acquiring Altera Corp. (NASDAQ: ALTR).
At Intel’s annual investor meeting, the company’s board of directors approved an increase in its annualized cash dividend to $1.04 per share. On a quarterly basis, that translates to $0.26 per share, versus the prior $0.24 per share payout. When we called for the coming dividend hike, our view was that Intel would raise its dividend to $1.00 per share on an annualized basis, so this is double the dividend hike that we were looking for.
What’s key is that Intel is raising its dividend payout by 8.3%. If you use the $33.16 closing price from Wednesday, that new yield will be 3.13%. The prior yield was 2.89%.
What is perhaps more important than Intel’s dividend news was its annual guidance for 2016. Revenue growth was projected to be in the mid-single digits for 2016, and Thomson Reuters has revenue estimates being down 1.1% to $55.25 billion in 2015 and then up 4% to $57.5 billion in 2016.
Looks legit. Piednol might be on to something. He posted a pic of a screenshot in his tweet and he had discussion with the creator of Geekbench JFPoole. Looks like he was lectured by Piednol on how to set the CPU for proper benchmark. LOL. Bad Geekbench… Bad….
I think the Div increase is a clear signal from the company execs that they are confident DataCenter, IoT and memory revenue growth will more than make up for any PC revenue decline in 2016 and perhaps beyond.
PC market is mature, but IoT is in it's infancy and Data Center has years before reaching full maturity.
Intel's DataCenter dominance is not under any serious threat. In fact with Altera acquisition, Intel will likely get a bigger slice of the silicon that goes in to the data center beyond just servers.
IoT is in it's infancy. If you think about all systems and infrastructure in cities, buildings, factories, homes and cars, the space is wide open for adding edge devices that feed near real time data back to the cloud where big data analytic can help business owners see trends, optimize and save millions and billions along the way. Intel is there from the edge devices, to the gateways and all the way to the cloud.
Qualcomm dropped 9%, hitting a new four-year low as the semiconductor manufacturer faced allegations from the South Korean Fair Trade Commission that it violated anti-competitive laws. Qualcomm maintained that the regulator's allegations "are not supported by the facts and are a serious misapplication of law." Yet because the semiconductor maker gets so much of its revenue from licensing royalties, any threat to that income source is enough to concern investors, especially given how much the stock has already gotten hit recently. With Qualcomm continuing to fight with Chinese customers to ensure that it gets paid the licensing fees that it deserves, investors in the embattled tech giant could see further pressure in the near-term.

Lucy once again walks straight into the 2 by 4.
Right after he got through telling us that Intel was going to warn.
And Lucy then immediately cranks up his BackBay_bstn and Marco fake ID characters. Sometimes I think Lucy is crazier than StalkerBoy.
Yinz is mean to marco. Sea Yinz @ $5.00 then.
marco the super genius : -))))) (andAZZ eater) ha ha
Yinz laugh at me cuz of my moronic predictions, but here's sumting you can hang your hat on. I ate out another man's rear end today. Found myself straining to get my noze up his hooter farther than thought possible.
you are sooo right. So I watched that CNBC clip and Rasgon was at his best...chopped up like little onions by the cell phone connection. That guy is the worst broken record, looking only in the rear-view mirror, and he times his attacks in balck-out periods and slow news days to spread his fear and loathing. And yes, Kernan is a jerk summa...
Mr. Kernen is the worst POS so-called reporter I've ever seen. I can't watch the dude. He's the most biased, close minded Republican shill imaginable. He should be fired, but I guess he's a good boy and does his bosses bidding.
Because, unlike the people on CNBC like Joe Kernan and all those bimbos, INTC is a forward looking, liberal, California company, while CNBC is as fear-mongering neanderthal as it gets...maybe even worse than Faux News.
trots out Stacy Rasgon to throw darts. They don't wait a day or so after the news comes out. They've got to do it right away. Immediately. Luckily, today good old Stacy was incomprehensible as he promoted his negative opinions from inside the Holland Tunnel or someplace similar. CNBC is never balanced when it comes to Intel. I wonder why.
Yeah, well ... I sold all my Intel because you said, two days ago, that it was going to go way down. But, gee golly, it's gone up the last couple of days. You're not too good at the prognostication game, are yinz? For a super genius, you sure seem to be wrong a lot.
