10:37 EDTWDC, HPQ, STX, INTC, MSFTPC names climb following positive Intel preannouncement
Shares of a number of companies that benefit from higher PC sales are rising after Intel (INTC) raised its guidance, citing strong demand for business PCs. WHAT'S NEW: Last night chip maker Intel said that it now expects some revenue growth this fiscal year, versus its previous guidance for "mostly flat" revenue growth. Intel now expects its revenue to be $13.7B, plus or minus $300M, in the second quarter, as compared to its previous range of $12.5B-$13.5B. Additionally, the company said that its full-year gross profit margins would be in the upper half of the previous range of 61%, plus or minus a few percentage points. The higher revenue growth guidance was driven mostly by strong demand for business PCs, while the increased margin guidance was spurred mostly by expected increases in unit sales and reduced costs, Intel reported. ANALYST REACTION: Several research firms reacted positively to the news, with Morgan Stanley upgrading the shares to Equal Weight from Underweight, Roth Capital raising its rating to Buy from Neutral, and Drexel Hamilton upping its rating to Buy from Hold. Several firms also increased their price targets on Intel. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) rose 4%, Microsoft (MSFT) advanced 2%, and hard disk drive makers Seagate (STX) and Western Digital (WDC) advanced 2% and 3%, respectively. Intel gained 6.76% to $29.85.
