Its laughable to argue that GB benchmarks has any strong relevance to actual PC/laptop experience. Chipguy is a man among boys.
Wow. Harsh critique of Intel's modem business. Intel's mobile business continues to be a disaster. Its time to cut its losses & focus exclusively on servers and PCs.
Intel overpaid by about $10B. Once again, Intel's VPs have the un-Midas touch, buying at the absolute highs.
If not, we're back in the $25-$28 range. Intel leadership has let us down. Incompetence was masked by the XP business PC upgrade. Now, we're back where we were in the Paul O. years. Years wasted for the Intel shareholder. We need an Activist to shake up the Board and Intel's policies.
Another manuf. guy who doesn't know anything about product innovation or inspiring the workforce. Couldnt have chosen a worse CEO. CFO should be replaced as well.
Intel's new mantra is we dont want to miss the IoT market. I think they already have by trying to force x86 architecture in this space. They'll always be a laggard by being satisfied as a components supplier. A smart CFO would have bought innovative consumer players in the IoT space the past few years instead of wasting $8B on a laggard software security firm...Brian K. is another wrong guy for the job. He's a manufacturing guy..... Hardly a strategist & visionary. Not impressed.
The Mobile group is still treated as the ugly stepchild within the company. Brian K. has done very little to change the culture and silos that exist there. Horrible leadership starting with Craig Barrett. Great company to work for as you get high compensation with little to no accountability for your performance. Terrible for shareholders. CFO should be released immediately as he's not doing his job.
Stacy Smith coasting...Just allowing the horrible M&A's the past few years to happen is reason enough. Inexcusable. Where are the job cuts to align with -1% growth??
They need to fire the CFO. Has no clue how to manage Wall Street. In another month, shorts will come out saying Intel will miss Q3. And, where are the job cuts??
They bashed the stock last night. They have an agenda. CFO needs to be much more aggressive. Time for massive job cuts. Thats what the Street wants.
Very disturbing message from last night's call. Essentially, everyone will arrive at the 10nm process node in terms of product delivery at the same time. This is unacceptable as an Intel shareholder. What happened to the 2-year lead & growing??
This was supposed to be Intel's ace-in-the-hole, their competitive advantage. Intel continues to misfire on execution. Yet Intel continues to reward these employees with stock options and "fat" compensation packages.
