Intel’s Q4 A Mixed Bag: Misses Estimates With $0.48 EPS, But Nails The Street’s Revenue Consensus

view story

http://techcrunch.com – Intel has just reported both its fiscal Q4 2012 and year-end numbers, and they’re a mixed bag to say the least. The company itself expected to rake in $13.6 billion in revenues as per its Q3 release, but only managed to hit $13.5 billion this time around — a slight disappointment to be sure, but right in line with analysts’ consensus. That said, the legendary chipmaker only reported earnings per share of $0.48, just missing Bloomberg’s consensus estimate of $0.49. Net income this quarter was $2.5 billion, down from $3 billion in Q3 and $3.4 billion from the year-ago quarter. Pullin (IT news)
