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.
07:34 EDTINTCIntel mobile business could be source of growth, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo believes that Intel's Mobile & Communications segment could be an important growth and profit driver for the company starting next year. The firm thinks the company's manufacturing technology lead and efforts to establish a foundry business could boost its Mobile & Communications segment. It keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.

16:24 EDTINTCOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street started the trading day higher, thanks in part to solid earnings reports from some of the nationís largest companies as well as a proposed mega-merger in the entertainment industry. Investors preparing for the next round of earnings after the close, which includes reports from eBay (EBAY), Yum! Brands (YUM), and Las Vegas Sands (LVS), did so with the Dow at a new all-time high. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the Producer Price Index for June rose 0.4%, which was ahead of expectations for a 0.2% increase. Industrial production grew 0.2% in June, missing the forecast for 0.3% growth. The NAHB homebuilder confidence index rose to 53 in July, ahead of expectations for it to tick up 1 point to 50. Economic activity expanded in all regions of the country at a moderate to modest pace in recent weeks, the Fed reported today in its Beige Book. Consumer spending rose in every region, as retail sales grew modestly in most areas and vehicle sales were stronger than sales of most other products, the central bank reported. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of HBO and Warner Bros. parent Time Warner (TWX) surged $12.12, or 17.07%, to $83.13 after it was reported by CNBC and DealBook's Andrew Ross Sorkin that the company had received, and rejected, a takeover offer worth about $80B, or $85 per share, from Rupert Murdoch's Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA). Both Time Warner and Fox subsequently confirmed the report, with Time Warner stating that it rejected the bid since it was "not in the best interests of stockholders" and Fox noting that the companies are not currently in discussions. Afterward, research firm Jefferies said it believes 21st Century Fox could raise its bid for Time Warner into the mid-to-upper $90's per share, but it also thinks that Time Warner would still be unlikely to accept the offer. Meanwhile, FBR Capital said Fox could pay up to $120 for Time Warner and still make an accretive deal. Class A shares of Twenty-First Century Fox ended the day down $2.19, or 6.22%, to $33.00... Shares of Apple (AAPL) initially rose after announcing last night that it would collaborate with IBM (IBM) to provide mobile solutions for businesses. Goldman Sachs analyst Bill Shope wrote in a note to investors that the deal with IBM is clearly positive for Apple, as it validates the "unique enterprise capabilities" of iOS, which has a lack of fragmentation that makes it uniquely suited for organizations. BlackBerry (BBRY), which has a focus on mobile devices for business use, slid $1.33, or 11.77%, to $9.97 after the tech giants announced their new partnership. Apple closed down 54c, or 0.57%, to $94.78, though IBM (IBM), which reports after tomorrow's close, climbed $3.87, or 2.05%, to $192.36. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Intel (INTC), which advanced $2.94, or 9.27%, to $34.65 after the semiconductor giant's second quarter results beat analysts' consensus estimates. Also higher was Tenet Healthcare (THC), which rallied $3.74, or 8.32%, to $48.71 after after another company in the hospital sector, HCA Holdings (HCA), pre-announced stronger than expected second quarter results. For its part, HCA rose $5.78, or 10.47%, to $60.99 after providing better than expected Q2 guidance and increasing its fiscal year outlook. Among the noteworthy losers was Yahoo (YHOO), which fell $1.82, or 5.11%, to $33.79 after the company's second quarter results fell short of analysts' consensus estimates. The company also said it will lower the amount of stock it will sell in Alibaba's initial public offering to 140M shares and that it plans to return "at least half" of its after-tax proceeds from the stake sale to its shareholders. Also lower were shares of Ross Stores (ROST), which fell $3.12, or 4.78%, to $62.15 after Sterne Agee downgraded its stock to Neutral from Buy and cut its price target for shares to $68 from $81, citing negative traffic trends and low visibility. INDEXES: The Dow rose 77.52, or 0.45%, to 17,138.20, the Nasdaq gained 9.58, or 0.22%, to 4,425.97, and the S&P 500 advanced 8.29, or 0.42%, to 1,981.57.

12:55 EDTINTCEarnings Preview: Intel up over 12% since pre-announcement
Intel (INTC) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the close on Tuesday, July 15, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Intel is a global semiconductor manufacturer and a member of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 52c on revenue of $13.69B. The consensus range is 45c-55c for EPS on revenue of $13.0B-$14.0B, according to First Call. Along with its first quarter report, Intel said it saw Q2 revenue of $13B, plus or minus $500M, compared to consensus at that time of $12.96B. Intel said then that it had expected its fiscal year 2014 revenue to be approximately flat, compared to consensus at that time of $53.15B. Subsequently, on June 12, Intel raised its Q2 revenue forecast to be $13.7B, plus or minus $300M, citing stronger than expected demand for business PCs. Intel added that it now expects some revenue growth for the year and that its full-year gross margin percentage is now expected to be in the upper half of the previous range of 61%, plus or minus a few percentage points, driven mostly by expected improvements in unit cost and volume. LAST QUARTER: Intel reported Q1 EPS of 38c, compared to consensus expectations at that time of 37c. The company's revenue of $12.8B was generally in-line with the consensus forecast. For the quarter, the company's gross margin came in at 59.7%. STREET RESEARCH: On the day after Intel made its positive pre-announcement, its stock was upgraded by several research firms. At that time, Morgan Stanley upgraded the shares to Equal Weight from Underweight, Roth Capital raised its rating to Buy from Neutral, and Drexel Hamilton upped its rating to Buy from Hold. Several firms also increased their price targets on Intel, with Jefferies raising its price target for Intel to $40 from $35 and Pacific Crest taking its target up to $35 from $32. Last night, coverage of Intel was initiated at Imperial Capital, which placed an Outperform rating and $37 target on the stock. NEWS: After eight quarters of declining shipments, worldwide PC shipments experienced flat growth in the second quarter of 2014, Gartner reported recently. Worldwide PC shipments totaled 75.8M units in the quarter, a 0.1% increase from the same quarter of 2013, according to Gartner. Another research firm, International Data Corporation, estimated that worldwide PC shipments totaled 74.4M units in the second quarter, marking a year-on-year decline of 1.7%. In company specific news, a July 9 report from MacRumors, citing Chinese site VR Zone, claimed that Intel has decided to further postpone the shipping of its line of 14-nanometer Broadwell chips, which are anticipated to be included in future versions of the Apple's (AAPL) MacBook Air, Retina MacBook Pro, and iMac. A report two days later from DigiTimes said that Intel is set to unveil its 14nm processors and 10nm wafers at its Developer Forum in San Francisco, citing sources from the upstream supply chain. According to the report, Intel will release the 14nm Core M-series processors in Q4 and 14nm Broadwell-based processors in January 2015. In June, The Wall Street Journal reported that Intel announced plans to package its standard server processors alongside a different class of programmable chip in a combination that includes an FPGA, or field programmable gate array. The Journal noted that FPGAs have been sold for years by Xilinx (XLNX) and Altera (ALTR), but that the general manager of Intelís data center group, Diane Bryant, declined to disclose Intelís partner on the latest effort or when the resulting products would hit the market. PRICE ACTION: Since the day after its earnings pre-announcement, Intel shares have risen over 12% and its stock is up more than 17% over the last three months. In afternoon trading ahead of tonight's report, Intel was trading near flat at $31.53.
