18:37 EDTHPQ, MSFT, INTCIntel is in the fight of its life in tablets and phones, Barron's reports
The degree to which Intel (INTC) and Microsoft (MSFT) seem to be pinning their hopes on the ultrabook has some investors uneasy, Barron's Technology Trader columnist Tiernan Ray notes. Ultrabooks are supposed to stoke interest in PC hardware again, and numerous second- and third-generation models will be rolling out from Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and others this year. Intel's forecast of Q2 gross profit as a percentage of revenue came in lower than expected. This was because Intel is spending money to ramp up manufacturing of the next significant microprocessor, the one meant to spark those ultrabook sales, called "Ivy Bridge." That much spending in front of a big bet means potential disappointment, according to skeptics such as JPMorgan's Christopher Danely. Goldman Sachs' James Covello doesn't care about ultrabooks -- he simply noted that when Intel's gross margin declines, the stock tends to decline. But, as with Microsoft (MSFT), Ray says, the market is rewarding decent performance -- warts and all. Intel's 3% dividend yield and its reasonable forward price/earnings ratio of just 11, not counting its cash, offer support. Reference Link

Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner says HP's Q3 results beat expectations while a shift in some earnings into the quarter from Q4 drove "modestly disappointing" guidance. While PCs are weak, HP's Enterprise Group "significantly outperformed expectations," Scribner tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst believes the company's enterprise portfolio is being underappreciated by investors and that the upcoming split should be a positive for shares. She views HP's valuation as compelling and keeps a Buy rating on the stock with a $45 price target.
