    My guess for Intel's Q4 earnings and Q1 outlook.

    Looks like I got the revenue right and the EPS pretty close if you look at GAAP.
    I still think they guided alot lower than what they believe the could get for Q1. They have done this before after beating a revised earnings guidance as they did today.
    They guided somewhat lower than what I thought they would, but I still think actual revenue for Q1 will be closer to $13.9 Billion rather than the estimates of $12.8 Billion. I certainly think that they will beat the high end of their guidance which is $13.3 Billion. This is classic Intel behavior of guidance low enough to blow well past future estimates. This will continue for the rest of 2012.
    Gross Margin guidance of course makes JP Morgan analyst look like a fool.

    Also happy that Intel is taking its share count down very aggressively. Buybacks in this manner will give its stock lots of support. Now I'm certain Intel will surpass the $30 mark in 2012. They have certainly set themselves up very well to do so.
