Intel fundamentals improving despite server shortfall, says Baird
Baird analyst Tristan Gerra believes Intel will maintain its 40% market share in mobile resulting in a continued decline in its mobile losses in 2017. The analyst noted the company lowered its outlook for client data center groups, which could weigh on the shares for the remainder of the year. Gerra believes the longer-term fundamentals remain intact with a still rising DCG mix, stabilization in PC comps, and further reductions in mobile losses driving a sustainable resumption in earnings growth. Gerra reiterated his Outperform rating and $42 price target on Intel shares.
