13:57 EDTINTCMicron, Intel memory launch more diversion than revolution, says Summit Research
After Micron (MU) and Intel (INTC) introduced 3D XPoint memory technology, Summit Research analyst Srini Sundararajan said that at first glance the new product seems like an additive memory that will co-exist with DRAM and NAND. Sundararajan added that nothing about the "amateurish" presentation gives him confidence that Micron and Intel can catch Samsung (SSNLF) in terms of DRAM or 3D NAND.

12:08 EDTINTCIntel, Micron introduce 3D XPoint memory technology
Intel (INTC) and Micron Technology (MU) unveiled 3D XPoint technology, a non-volatile memory that the companies say has the potential to "revolutionize any device, application or service that benefits from fast access to large sets of data." Now in production, 3D XPoint technology brings non-volatile memory speeds up to 1,000 times faster than NAND, according to Intel and Micron. 3D XPoint technology will sample later this year with select customers, and Intel and Micron are developing individual products based on the technology, the companies said.

14:51 EDTINTCEarnings Watch: Qualcomm reports after speculations of potential breakup
Qualcomm (QCOM) is expected to report third quarter earnings after the close on July 22, with a conference call scheduled for 4:45 pm ET. Qualcomm is a maker of semiconductors and telecommunications equipment. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 95c on revenue of $5.85B. EPS consensus ranges 90c-$1.05 on a revenue range of $5.59B-$6.08B, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: On April 22, Qualcomm reported Q2 EPS of $1.40 against expectations for $1.33, and revenue of $6.89B versus estimates of $6.83B. The company also cut its FY15 EPS guidance to $4.60-$5.00 from $4.85-$5.05 and lowered projected revenue to $25B-$27B from $26.3B-$28B, saying it expects pressure in its semiconductor business due to customer shifts in the premium segment and a decline in Qualcomm's share at an unnamed large customer. NEWS: On May 8, Reuters reported that EU antitrust regulators asked Qualcomm's competitors how the company's licensing and business practices affect them, and on July 16, the European Commission confirmed two formal antitrust investigations of the company. On May 25, Qualcomm and Daimler (DDAIF) announced a strategic collaboration to develop connected car technology. Coming on the heels of Avago's (AVGO) May 28 agreement to acquire Broadcom (BRCM), Bloomberg quoted a source later that day as saying Qualcomm, Intel (INTC), Altera (ALTR), Analog Devices (ADI), Maxim Integrated (MXIM), Texas Instruments (TXN), and Microchip Technology (MCHP) are all considering their own M&A opportunities. Note that on June 1, Intel announced an agreement to acquire Altera. On June 23, Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMI), Qualcomm, Huawei, and Imec announced the formation of a joint venture to focus on a type of 14 nanometer technology. More recently, the Wall Street Journal reported on July 20 that Qualcomm is "expected" to begin a comprehensive strategic review which may include the possibility of a breakup following pressure from "activist" shareholder Jana Partners, according to sources, adding that the move could be announced concurrent with Wednesday's earnings release. STREET RESEARCH: Following last quarter's earnings report, Exane BNP Paribas downgraded Qualcomm to Neutral from Outperform, while both Canaccord and Brean Capital lowered price targets for the stock after "disappointing" guidance. Meanwhile, Citi said it expects the company's chip business to recover in 2016 despite this "very bad year." On May 28, CLSA said it sees continued pressure on Qualcomm chipsets, potentially spurring the company to consider making an acquisition, and on June 2, Craig-Hallum noted that Skyworks (SWKS) would be a great fit for Qualcomm. On June 24, Summit Research called Applied Micro Circuits (AMCC) an "affordable" target for Qualcomm, with AMD (AMD) and Cavium (CAVM) also looking like potential takeover candidates. On June 29, Drexel Hamilton downgraded Qualcomm to Sell from Hold, citing expected price cuts. Lastly, following media reports on July 20 that Qualcomm could be weighing a breakup, Bernstein said that such a "dis-synergistic" split would likely destroy value rather than create it. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Qualcomm are down more than 1% to $64.37 in afternoon trading ahead of Wednesday's earnings report.

On the M&A front, Receptos (RCPT) advanced after Celgene (CELG) announced a deal to buy the smaller drugmaker for $232 per share in cash, or a total of about $7.2B net of cash acquired.

13:43 EDTINTCSemi equipment stocks overreacting to Intel capex cut, says Summit Research
Summit Research said Intel (INTC) is pushing out its 10nm plans for multiple reasons and that TSMC (TSM) and Samsung (SSNLF) will not let a "once in a lifetime opportunity" pass and will speed up their own spending. The firm believes the pullback in semiconductor equipment stocks, particularly Applied Materials (AMAT), KLA-Tencor (KLAC) and Lam Research (LRCX), on Intel's capex guidance cut is somewhat of an overreaction and recommends buying amid the weakness.
