Intel (INTC -0.9%) ticks lower after receiving two more estimate cuts, courtesy of Stifel and JPMorgan. The former is worried about the impact of macro conditions, Windows 8 anticipation, and high ultrabook prices on Q3 results, while the latter says checks indicate customer orders slowed in Q2 due to worries about Euro and Chinese trends. Caris, Baird, and others have already slashed estimates, and it looks as if some near-term pessimism is baked into shares.

    Long term investors in Intel have no concern about "daily noise" issued by brokerages firms with clearly conflicted interests..

    Agreed. Talk to me in 2-3 years and we will see who is laughing while I collect my dividend. Long INTC.

    Likewise (per the prior comments). Long INTC and happy to collect the dividend. It's amongst the least of my market (or non-market) concerns.

    Here's an interview with Stacy smith on earnings day last qtr. At 6:30 (near the end), Smith puts 2012 growth at "high single digits". That number has been re-iterated by both Otellini and Smith since then, most recently in late May.
    When one of the clowns backed him into a corner about, "a bad Europe has to affect those numbers, doesn't it?" He replied that Europe is no secret and that condition is considered in the 2012 projections.
    Smith, of course is the guy who keep dialing Otellini back from "20% growth" to, "Oh, I think Paul meant to say 10% growth".



    By the end of this year Intel will have at least twice as much capacity to make transistors as they had at the end of 2010.
    Are they doing an unprecendented ramp of three 22nm plants just to mothball one? I don't think so.
