12:55 EDTAAPLEarnings Preview: Intel up over 12% since pre-announcement
Intel (INTC) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the close on Tuesday, July 15, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Intel is a global semiconductor manufacturer and a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 52c on revenue of $13.69B. The consensus range is 45c-55c for EPS on revenue of $13.0B-$14.0B, according to First Call. Along with its first quarter report, Intel said it saw Q2 revenue of $13B, plus or minus $500M, compared to consensus at that time of $12.96B. Intel said then that it had expected its fiscal year 2014 revenue to be approximately flat, compared to consensus at that time of $53.15B. Subsequently, on June 12, Intel raised its Q2 revenue forecast to be $13.7B, plus or minus $300M, citing stronger than expected demand for business PCs. Intel added that it now expects some revenue growth for the year and that its full-year gross margin percentage is now expected to be in the upper half of the previous range of 61%, plus or minus a few percentage points, driven mostly by expected improvements in unit cost and volume. LAST QUARTER: Intel reported Q1 EPS of 38c, compared to consensus expectations at that time of 37c. The company's revenue of $12.8B was generally in-line with the consensus forecast. For the quarter, the company's gross margin came in at 59.7%. STREET RESEARCH: On the day after Intel made its positive pre-announcement, its stock was upgraded by several research firms. At that time, Morgan Stanley upgraded the shares to Equal Weight from Underweight, Roth Capital raised its rating to Buy from Neutral, and Drexel Hamilton upped its rating to Buy from Hold. Several firms also increased their price targets on Intel, with Jefferies raising its price target for Intel to $40 from $35 and Pacific Crest taking its target up to $35 from $32. Last night, coverage of Intel was initiated at Imperial Capital, which placed an Outperform rating and $37 target on the stock. NEWS: After eight quarters of declining shipments, worldwide PC shipments experienced flat growth in the second quarter of 2014, Gartner reported recently. Worldwide PC shipments totaled 75.8M units in the quarter, a 0.1% increase from the same quarter of 2013, according to Gartner. Another research firm, International Data Corporation, estimated that worldwide PC shipments totaled 74.4M units in the second quarter, marking a year-on-year decline of 1.7%. In company specific news, a July 9 report from MacRumors, citing Chinese site VR Zone, claimed that Intel has decided to further postpone the shipping of its line of 14-nanometer Broadwell chips, which are anticipated to be included in future versions of the Apple's (AAPL) MacBook Air, Retina MacBook Pro, and iMac. A report two days later from DigiTimes said that Intel is set to unveil its 14nm processors and 10nm wafers at its Developer Forum in San Francisco, citing sources from the upstream supply chain. According to the report, Intel will release the 14nm Core M-series processors in Q4 and 14nm Broadwell-based processors in January 2015. In June, The Wall Street Journal reported that Intel announced plans to package its standard server processors alongside a different class of programmable chip in a combination that includes an FPGA, or field programmable gate array. The Journal noted that FPGAs have been sold for years by Xilinx (XLNX) and Altera (ALTR), but that the general manager of Intelís data center group, Diane Bryant, declined to disclose Intelís partner on the latest effort or when the resulting products would hit the market. PRICE ACTION: Since the day after its earnings pre-announcement, Intel shares have risen over 12% and its stock is up more than 17% over the last three months. In afternoon trading ahead of tonight's report, Intel was trading near flat at $31.53.
12:21 EDTGSOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday despite better than expected quarterly reports from two of the nation's largest financial institutions. Stock futures improved during the pre-market trading session, leading to a higher open for the broader market, following better than expected earnings reports from JP Morgan (JPM) and Goldman Sachs (GS). The earnings news also came alongside another huge M&A deal, as tobacco giants Reynolds American (RAI) and Lorillard (LO) confirmed plans to merge. However, the major averages weakened throughout the morning and fell into negative ground against the backdrop of Fed Chair Janet Yellen giving testimony on Capital Hill. In the Board of Governors' Monetary Policy Report, the central bank said valuation metrics in "some sectors" appear substantially stretched, "particularly those for smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries." ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., retail sales increased 0.2% in June compared to the month prior, making for the weakest reading since January and missing the consensus forecast for an increase of 0.6%. The Empire State manufacturing index climbed to a four-year high of 25.6 in July, beating expectations for a reading of 16.5. Import prices rose 0.1% in June, with export prices slipping 0.4%. Business inventories grew 0.5% in May, which was just below the 0.6% consensus growth expectation. In Europe, Germany's ZEW survey missed expectations, as both its Current Situation and Expectations reading were lower than forecast. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of JPMorgan advanced nearly 4% after the bank reported a profit of $1.46 a share, which included a legal expense of 13c a share, beating analysts' consensus forecast of $1.29. The earnings report comes after CEO Jamie Dimon recently disclosed that he has throat cancer. During the company's conference call, Dimon said he was "feeling great," that doctors had found no evidence of cancer anywhere except in the location where it had originally been detected, and that his prognosis for recovery is "excellent"... Also in the large-cap bank sector, Goldman Sachs' headline earnings and revenue similarly beat expectations. The firm, which said it ranks first in worldwide announced and completed mergers and acquisitions for the year-to-date, advanced about 1% following its report... Along with JPMorgan in the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) reported quarterly sales and profits that beat expectations and the healthcare conglomerate raised its fiscal year EPS view to $5.85-$5.92 from $5.75-$5.85. However, its increased outlook range still fell short of the $5.90 per share consensus forecast that analysts had prior to its report... Reynolds American confirmed news that has been speculated for many weeks, announcing that it will acquire peer Lorillard in a cash-and-stock transaction currently valued at $68.88 per Lorillard share, or a total of $27.4B, including the assumption of net debt. Shares of both fell afterward, with Lorillard down 8% to trade near $61.75 at midday and Reynolds slipping 5%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was small-cap pharma biotechnology research company Codexis (CDXS), which surged nearly 50% after announcing a collaboration and license agreement with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK). Among the noteworthy losers was Aaron's (AAN), which is engaged in the lease ownership and retail sale of a variety of consumer products. Its stock fell over 6% after the company lowered its second quarter outlook, citing lower than expected performance of its core business as the reason for the revision. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 33.45, or 0.2%, to 17,021.97, the Nasdaq was down 40.48, or 0.91%, to 4,399.94, and the S&P 500 was down 9.24, or 0.47%, to 1,967.86.
