This Apple deal is "A GAME CHANGER". If it is true, Intel will become, Like IBM, BORN AGAIN.
Yes--Intel can keep building its own chips and it can make them the best but HUGE money can be made using the Intel Fabrication abilities with partners like Apple and Cisco and others.
Imagine Intel chips in Apple TVs, Macs, Ipads, and then the Iphones. Then imagine Intel fabing most if not all of the chips for Cisco.
A company making HUGE money using its Super human fabs matched only by Samsung in volume and not matched by any company in Chip ability--trigate.
What? You were burned by Intel before and you will not believe until you see it. Fair enough. But you will be paying over 40 for the stock not long after Apple announces its new deal with Intel.
those 14 nm intc chips will be all over the planet in smart phones not only for Apple but for another dozen companies. 1 billion dollars in sales of smart phone last year. Intel will have its CPUs in half of those phone in 5 years.
Imagine Intel getting Samsung as well as Apple as users of Intel phone chips.
AND--no more AMD to bother Intel with antitrust nonsense.
Intel---it could be at the start of a major Bull run. 100--then 200--then----HIGHER!
net profits over 10 billion a quarter will be needed for those numbers but the markets are there and Intel will own them.
