This latest tri-gate transistor technology which will be launched in Q3 by Intel has got Apple salivating. After Intel delivers earnings growth of over 25% for 2011, this latest technological advance will allow Intel to continue 20% or more growth for 2012 at the very least. A 15% annual growth on average for the next 5 years is pretty much in the bag as far as I can tell given Intel's recent history and their way of communicating their confidence. Intel will deliver strong on the numbers. So investors can either buy now, or wait till Intel announces another buyback authorization that's more than $25 Billion. Which within the next 3 years can be filled in one year's time.
