Full-year revenues in 2013 were $52.7bn, with a gross margin of 59.8 per cent, down slightly on $53.3bn and 62.1 per cent a year ago. Net income fell to $9.6bn from $11bn
O.K., to me, that's not cause for complaining...
Intel beat analyst expectations on sales and missed on earnings as the world's largest chip designer had trouble tacking into the winds of change that are reshaping the world's tech market. Full-year revenues in 2013 were $52.7bn, with a gross margin of 59.8 per cent, down slightly on $53.3bn and 62.1 per cent a year ago. Net …
Headline I see says "treads water" which is in the $-0.05 to $0.05 per share range. What exactly is your issue?
Not a coffee drinker myself, but I'm told these days you can't tell the difference between defcafe and regular. On the tea front, I find several herbals are quite good.
I'm quite sure in fact Intel continues to push the envelope for x86. Love it or hate it, (x86) Intel continues to drive the 'rate of shrinkage,' power efficiency and throughput, and is extremely competitive. If you are planning on building a PC in three years, you will almost certainly want the latest and greatest Intel cpu inside. I'd hardly call them complacent considering how they've manged to make x86 approaching ARM efficiency with the z2580 and it's predecessors which will certainly be more-so. Tri-gate or lightning anyone?
While praising a US firm in the land of EU competition in ARM may not prove popular, it is madness to call Intel a company lacking in innovation and focus.
Yes, it's interesting how its customers are taking a hammering while its profits remain stable. This is indicative of the market not functioning correctly. It can only be a matter of time before Dell, etc. either migrate en masse to AMD or pour enough into Android on ARM (offers more potential for differentiation outside the consumer electronics segment) to make it an attractive prospect: being able to cut out Intel chips and Windows licences would allow them to cut prices and have a chance of making a profit.
