    This Was A Nice Beat

    even over their prior guidance. However my main concerns are it is trading at more than a decade high same can be said for the margins which may have peaked. They would not really talk about the margins going forward during the CC telling the analysts to do the math for themselves. Another concern is that they are spending a huge amount of money each quarter on buybacks and will continue to do so when the shares are at these elevated levels. I think you may see an initial move higher early tomorrow then you may see some profit-taking soon after. The stock is up a lot in 6 months which needs to be watched. It was a good quarter though despite these possible concerns.

    • I wish this was an exact science. Many are prone to selling and taking their profits at these all time highs, but then there are other investors out there that might see this as a major break through and put more momentum behind an already hot stock.

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Last 10 year PE for INTC was around 22. Were only at 16 with a great pipe line. Dow, Nasdaq, & S&P are all at supporting PE's. Add a 3% div vs 2% for most tech and we have a long way to run. Almost forgot the 188 million short shares that need to cover with an increased 20 billion buyback and 4 billion buyback in 3rd qtr.

      • The short ratio is about 3&1/2% which is very low. Once again I am always wary when a company buys back at multi, multi-year highs and stats show buybacks not as successful as people think over the long term. If their earnings have peaked along with their margins they will be buying back at elevated levels. I believe this will go higher early tomorrow (the AH high I saw was $33.19) then you may see a pullback. I follow INTC mostly because I trade MU almost everyday MU is more volatile. I have not traded INTC for a few months now but I will leave it on my screen tomorrow to see if there is a nice dip to buy. The analyst's calls may tell us where shares go Wednesday.

        [Right on.]

    • Intel is back and will catch up in mobile in 2015. $50 by the end of the year.
