12:41 EDTINTCIntel advances after analyst predicts mobile unit rebound coming
Shares of Intel (INTC) are advancing in a down market after Wells Fargo wrote that the company's mobile chip business could rebound significantly in coming quarters. WHAT'S NEW: Intel's mobile chip business could boost the company's growth and even enable it to beat earnings expectations, Wells Fargo wrote in a note to investors today. The chip maker's shipments of 4G modems should start rising significantly in the third quarter or fourth quarter of this year, the firm stated. The company has probably won some deals to provide LTE modems for smartphones and Samsung is likely one of the chip maker's initial customers, the firm wrote. Broadcom's (BRCM) decision to exit the baseband market probably improved Intel's position in the 4G market, Wells Fargo contended. Meanwhile, Intel said that by this year's holiday season, it should be ready to launch chips for mobile devices that are smaller than those of a key competitor, TSMC (TSM), Wells noted. Sales generated by Intel's mobile and communications unit may have bottomed last quarter or could do so during the current quarter, the firm believes. The unit's operating losses are likely to drop throughout this year, before falling sharply in the quarter ended March 2015, Wells estimated. The unit may approach break even by the end of 2015, the firm added. Wells kept an Outperform rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On July 15, Intel reported stronger than expected results for its quarter ended in June. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Intel rose 43c, or 1.3%, to $34.13.
