The chipmaker's financial data for the first quarter of 2019 was positive - but the outlook continued to fall in the share value
We already know that sometimes there is no direct correlation between a company's financial success and its success in the stock market - and further demonstration is coming from Intel, which estimates it will "only" put 15.6 billion in the current quarter, resulting in almost a tenth of its market value loss in just a few hours.
Big chip maker economic data for January-March this year successfully met experts' expectations with $ 16.1 billion in revenue for $ 4 billion - down from the first quarter of 2018, but not bad for a company in the midst of a production crisis The largest 10 nm manufacturing process creates difficulty in meeting the demand for the latest 14 nm products.
The less positive news came at the point Intel Provided performance estimates for the second quarter of the year, well underway - with projected revenue of 15.6 billion, compared to 16.8 billion, analysts first estimated. This canned figure, along with the announcement of retirement from business Development The modems for the fifth mobile generation have resulted in a considerable long-term distrust of investors - the company's stock has seen growth of about nine percent on a single trading day, and even more so in the last two days.
Many seem to believe that the company will find it difficult to recapture the days when it broke records constantly - even considering that beyond the horizon lies the intriguing entrance into the universe of dedicated graphics processing products.
Intel expects the shortage of some of its employees to continue at least until the third quarter of 2019, despite recent 1.5 billion investments made in the recent period to address this challenge - so cut-price questions for the company's products are probably not very realistic. At Intel, however, they stated that they began the process of training processors Ice Lake, The first of the 10 nanometer era to be widely available.
The company announced that various technological improvements will allow them to increase the output of the new 10 nanometer processors, with the current milestone reinforcing the assumption that we will be able to see computers Mobile New Age basedIce Lake The first will be part of the U family, probably with four core processing cores in the 15-watt power supply) by the end of the current year - which will ease the bottleneck in the 14-nm processors and essentially herald the arrival of a new era with the core architectureSunny Cove.
An 2019 year may be something challenging for Intel - But it is quite possible that at the end we expect a big leap forward and back to the beneficiary.
