Intel’s 2nd Quarter

July 14, 2010


Intel’s (INTC) 2nd quarter came in at $.51, well above street estimate of $.43. Gross margins exceeded expectations at 67.2% versus 64%e. We are encouraged by management’s increase in guidance for the 3rd quarter despite the fact that inventories grew 12% quarter to quarter.
Company will benefit from the following areas:
1. Rebound in IT spending.
2. PC growth in emerging markets.
3. Increase in higher margin products.
In our opinion, this company continues to remain undervalued based on its ability to grow earnings and a superior balance sheet. Even if the stock traded at a market multiple for 2010, it would be worth $25.80 or a 22% increase from current price.

On the Right Track

April 19, 2010


Coca Cola (KO)
We have previously blogged about and want to reiterate the following: Stock has a 3% dividend yield (50% higher than the S&P!), over $1.00 in free cash flow/sh and only 17% debt to total cap!
1. Company focus on improving product mix like vitamin waters and healthy alternatives.
2. Attractive exposure to emerging markets.
3. Strong focus on cost controls.
Company is reporting 1st quarter numbers on 4/20. Street is expecting $.74 versus $.65. To confirm that KO is moving in the right direction, the recently announced an increase of its stake in Innocent Drinks to take a majority ownership of the U.K. based fruit and smoothie drink maker.
