    Here's why INTC will jump in after hours tomorrow

    Current analyst estimate for Q1 is 0.41 while estimate for this quarter (Q2) is 0.40. Since Intel did not warn, we can assume that Intel will beat 0.41 tomorrow. Now, if you go back to last conference call, Intel stated that they expect revenue to grow by low single digits. If Intel grows just 2% this year, we are looking at a record year in revenue of over $54 billion. This is very achievable, with new products such as Haswell, bay trail, clover trail, Merrifield; and deals with Altera and soon to be announced Cisco deal (worth $1 billion). Intel also stated that they expected margins to remain flat for this quarter due to 14nm upgrade cost. So if Intel meet their target of $12.7 billion for Q1, then for sure this quarter will be substantially higher. And Q3 and Q4 will be huge since margins will be back to normal. This means analysts are forced to increase their estimate for Q2 and for rest of the year.
