NASDAQ: INTC | Intel Corporation News, Ratings, and Charts

INTC – In first earnings report as permanent CEO, Bob Swan says ‘we expect market conditions to improve in the second half’.

Intel Corp. shares plummeted as much as 9% in the extended session Thursday after the chip giant’s outlook fell way below Wall Street estimates, offsetting an earnings beat, and a decline in data-center revenue was worse than expected.

Intel INTC, -7.48%  said it expects adjusted earnings of 89 cents a share on revenue of about $15.6 billion for the second quarter, while analysts polled by FactSet had forecast earnings of $1.01 a share on revenue of $16.86 billion. For the year, the chip maker sees adjusted earnings of $4.35 a share on revenue of about $69 billion. Analysts had forecast $4.50 a share on revenue of $71.04 billion.

“Looking ahead, we’re taking a more cautious view of the year, although we expect market conditions to improve in the second half,” Intel Chief Executive Bob Swan said in a statement. “Our team is focused on expanding our market opportunity, accelerating our innovation and improving execution while evolving our culture.”

The company reported first-quarter net income of $3.97 billion, or 87 cents a share, compared with $4.45 billion, or 93 cents a share, in the year-ago period. Adjusted earnings were 89 cents a share. Revenue declined to $16.06 billion from $16.07 billion in the year-ago quarter. Analysts had forecast adjusted earnings of 87 cents a share on revenue of $16.03 billion, according to FactSet.

Data-center revenue, however, declined more than expected, down 6% to $4.9 billion, when analysts were expecting a 2.5% decline to $5.1 billion, according to FactSet data.
