07:15 EDTINTCAny Intel server weakness likely a hiccup, says RBC Capital
After JMP Securities yesterday downgraded Intel (INTC) based partly on information from a source who said that server component sales have been weak in 2015, RBC Capital says any weakness is probably due to a three month delay caused by a technical problem and is not demand driven. RBC Capital expects the technical problem to be resolved within three months but keeps a $40 price target and Sector Perform rating on Intel.

16:09 EDTAYICree says LED lighting market still in early stages
Cree (CREE) CEO Chuck Swoboda said in the company's earnings release, "We made solid progress in Q2 with operating margin higher than targeted due to an improvement in gross margins in our lighting business. The market for LED lighting is still in the early stages, our new product pipeline is strong, sales momentum is building and our brand is growing in the market. As evidenced by our significant share repurchases in Q2, we believe we are on the right track to continue to grow the company and increase profits over the next several years." Cree peers include SemiLEDs (LEDS) and Acuity Brands (AYI). Cree shares are up 6% in after-hours trading to $34.40 after reporting better than expected Q2 results.
11:15 EDTINTCIntel slips after JMP cuts to sell, Canaccord says upgrade not yet warranted
Following Intel's (INTC) fourth quarter results last week, two research firms issued cautious notes on the stock today. JMP Securities downgraded the stock to Underperform, which is the firm's "Sell" equivalent rating, while Canaccord kept a Hold rating on the shares, though the latter firm said its outlook on the company's fundamentals is continuing to become more positive and raised its price target on the name. WHAT'S NEW: Intel's Q4 results were "mixed," but the company's fundamentals appear to have improved, Canaccord analyst Matt Ramsay wrote in a note to investors today. The company's data center group and Internet of Things group should generate sustained 15%+ and 20%+ growth, respectively, over the next several years, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Intel's PC client group should be able to cut costs further, Ramsay believes. The analyst said he had "intended to upgrade the stock" after the results, given his long-term upbeat view of the company, but was unable to do so. Ramsay explained that he changed his mind because he does not think the company's profits will increase at all this year, while the stock largely already reflects his expectations for solid profit growth in 2016. The analyst increased his price target on the shares to $40 from $36 but kept a Hold rating on the stock. More bearish was JMP Securities analyst Alex Gauna. Gauna downgraded the stock to Underperform from Market Perform and set a $30 price target on Intel. After speaking with a source who sells server components, the analyst reported that the source's business has been weak this month. Weak server component sales are likely to pull down Intel's stock, given its relatively high valuation, the analyst stated. Meanwhile, Intel's gross margins have probably peaked, Gauna believes. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, Intel fell 1.7% to $35.82.

07:59 EDTINTCIntel upgrade not warranted due to lack of EPS growth, says Canaccord
Canaccord said it intended to upgrade Intel following its mixed Q4 results, but with estimates for essentially no earnings growth in 2015, the firm could not justify it.
