Stocks always look good before a storm. The guy writing the article is likely very long and must have not seen the earnings warning coming. Can we really assume anything else? Absolutely Not! We must assume Intel's' earnings growth has peaked and the same goes for the dividend, This condition may not last long or define a negative trend for the company, but look what Apple is doing to it's competition, Hewlett and Dell are at 9 and 14 bucks per share while the S&P500 is at multi-year highs.
I don't think the conference call will be enough to turn the stock around. Generally, when a company warns so early, the situation is not good. On the call, you can expect some very tough questions. The stock is now a relative performance loser, you've got to accept this year is finished for the stock. It could be a buy in late December for a nice move into the beginning of next year, but the overall market seems strange. Usually when semis are having trouble, it's a tell on the overall health of the market, but Apple may be changing the rules or at least blurring them.
