Intel technical comments ahead of earnings

The shares are trading close to 52-week highs ahead of earnings. Pulling back to a 10-year plus view of the chart shows that the stock is in a very slow rounding bottom formation that has recently picked up momentum. If the news is strongly positive, the first major resistance hurdle will be at the $40 area. On a breakout above $40, next resistance would be at $41.25 and then at $42.94. If the news is instead a negative surprise, a breakdown in price below $36 would break the uptrend support line in place since the move off the lows of May of this year. Next supports below to watch as potential downside objectives would be at $35.15, $34, and $32.38.

Intel results likely to be boosted by positive catalysts, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo thinks that Intel's (INTC) September quarter report and December quarter guidance will be boosted by several positive catalysts, including signs of improving PC demand, solid revenue momentum at its Data Center Group, and ramping sales of modems for Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 7. The firm keeps a $40-$50 price target on Intel and continues to identify it as a top pick.

Cowen says to buy KLA-Tencor following merger agreement termination
Cowen analyst Timothy Arcuri said the KLA-Tencor (KLAC) merger with Lam Research (LRCX) was called off as expected. He said it was consistent with his assessment and believes Intel (INTC) was the culprit. The companies cited review of options amid recent ant-trust agency feedback. Arcuri said he continues to like Lam Research but prefers KLA-Tencor as he sees it as one of the only semi companies with roughly 30% upside. Arcuri maintained his Outperform rating and $80 price target on KLA-Tencor shares.
