The time to warn for Intel is the next few days.
I agree, I was thinking this too. Looks like .46 EPS is expected for the quarter, with concensus EPS of 2.11 for the year.
This is really very negative, since Q1, Q2, and Q3 were .53, .54, and .60. Seems to me Wall Street is on crack, even if Intel comes in at .57 they will have beaten estimates by .11.
Intel beat estimates in Q3 by .10 so I'd say .57 is right on target, and just enough upside surprise to rally to $22 IMHO.
Ideally we'd be at $22 before then, it isn't unheard of.. and with the recent good news... intel should already be around $21... however the market manipulators have won again today...
Sentiment: Strong Buy
