    INTC to miss estimates?

    I believe in objectivity, and everything I have read tells me INTC will have a great qtr. The estimates of 9.8B/.37 would be right at a 40% gain on revs, and a several hundred % gain on eps; I believe it would also be INTC's strongest 1Q ever, but I didn't look exhaustively. In that light, even meeting those record numbers should have the stock up in the 25-27 range imo. So, the terrible price action on Intel has me concerned that perhaps we are in for a negative shock. The analysts are raising price targets to the $30s, other chip stocks are doing well, and Intel's stock price is languishing! Perhaps Mr. Market is just missing this one but Intel's terrible stock price action has me concerned.

    • Check the price action one week before intel reported great quarters in the past and stop being that concerned.

      The truth is that, short term, the market doesn't have a clue, otherwise there would be no way to make money on the stock market as all stocks would always be well priced at all times.

      • Going from memory, but I thought INTC went up 5-20% in the week prior for the last few qtrs. Could be wrong, but it never ceases to amaze me how often someone seems to know and the price action before tells you that is the case. Could also be that the Mr. Market is clueless as you say, and they just haven't figured out what a great position Intel is in for the next few years. One thing is sure, if the news is OK, and they blindly sell the news, it will be a fantastic buying opportunity. If the news is great and they sell...
