    Intel Posts Better-Than-Expected 3rd-Qtr Profit As Notebook Demand Drives Microprocessor Sales


    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- Intel Corp., the world's largest semiconductor maker, said Tuesday its third-quarter earnings rose 43 percent as strong demand for notebook computers drove sales of the company's microprocessors.
    Net income for the quarter ended Sept. 29 grew to $1.86 billion, or 31 cents per share, from $1.30 billion, or 22 cents per share, a year ago.

    Revenue climbed 15 percent to $10.09 billion from $8.74 billion in the prior-year period.

    Analysts surveyed by Thomson Financial expected a profit of 30 cents per share on revenue of $9.62 billion.

    In September, the company surprised investors by raising its revenue outlook to a range of $9.4 billion to $9.8 billion, citing strong worldwide demand for chips.

    Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini said in a statement he expects revenue and operating income will continue to improve into the fourth quarter.

    UPDATE: Intel Expected To Report Solid Quarter

    SAN FRANCISCO (Marketwatch) -- Intel Corp. (INTC) , the world's top maker of semiconductors, is expected to report a big jump in third-quarter revenue later Tuesday, boosted by better-than-expected sales of personal computers.

    The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company is expected to post revenue of $9.6 billion for the quarter ended Sept. 30, up 10% from a year ago, according to a consensus survey of analyst estimates. Intel is also projected to report earnings a share of 30 cents, compared to 22 cents in the same period last year.

    Last month, Intel raised its revenue projection to between $9.4 billion to $ 9.8 billion, from a previous range of $9 billion to $9.6 billion.

    "Strong [microprocessor] sales through August suggest Intel will likely beat even the mid-point of its raised [third quarter] guidance," analyst Glen Yeung of Citi Investment Research said in an Oct. 15 research note.

    Some analysts say Intel benefited from a strong PC market, marked by growing demand for notebooks, which is expected to continue in the current quarter.

    "Healthy seasonal PC demand, product shift to notebooks and stable pricing lead to margin expansion near-term," analyst John Dryden of Charter Equity Research said in an Oct. 11 research note. "Similar to this quarter's preannouncement, we expect Intel's performance to continue to strengthen in December as demand for laptop processors exceeds expectations in both developed and emerging markets."

    Robust demand for PCs in markets outside the United States should help Intel weather the expected decline in demand in North America, he added. This will also strengthen the chip giant's wide lead over rival, Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) .

    "Any concern over North American consumer weakness will be muted by a high mix of revenue from international markets," he wrote. "Market share gains and upside from a wide array of new product introductions increases Intel's lead over AMD."

    Daniel Berenbaum of Caris & Company said Intel "has maintained significant momentum in both top-line growth (share gain and strong pricing) and cost control (more efficiencies squeezed out of the factory)."

    He cited the "continued ramp" of Intel Santa Rosa microprocessor for laptops as a factor for the company's strong performance, and also noted that PC sales will likely remain strong through the rest of the year.

    "Despite recent indications of caution from some in the food chain, PC shipments and microprocessor demand will remain seasonally healthy through year end," he wrote. "We still view strength as seasonal, not secular, and expect [ first quarter of 2008] sales to be down in turn, but given reasonable inventory levels we do not expect a significant near-term pullback in fundamentals."

    Intel is the No. 1 chipmaker in the world, with about 13% of the industry's total revenue in 2006, followed by Samsung Electronics with 8%, and Texas Instruments with 5% according to International Data Corp

    Segundo ainda a Bloomberg o crescimento da Intel em comparação à AMD aumentou neste trimestre.

    Prova de que há 1 ano atrás muitas pessoas estavam somente olhar para a arvore em vez da floresta, quando a AMD aumentava o market share apesar da introdução do C2D e do plano ambicioso que a Intel apresentava ao mundo.

    Passado 1 ano olha-se para o mercado e o que se vé?!...... Pois, perguntem agora aos "velhos do Restelo".... Aonde andam eles?! :wow:
