Investors expect second-quarter results after the market closes on July 17. The mean estimate is currently 52 cents a share, a decline of 7 cents (11.9%) from 59 cents in the same period last year.Analyst opinion is mixed with this company. Most analysts surveyed don't believe a buy or a sell recommendation should be made at this point. Right now, INTC has 17 buy recommendations out of 39 analysts covering the company, 20 holds, and two sells. The stock has appreciated 12.9% in the last year, and the average analyst target price for INTC is $29.63. The trailing 12-month P/E is 10.5, the mean fiscal year estimate P/E is 10.31, based on earnings of $2.46 a share this year. Investors are receiving 84 cents in dividends for a yield of 3.31%. Intel shares are under pressure. I would love a chance to pick up shares again under $22, as I did last year by selling puts. Like with Microsoft, I like buying Intel on dips, an especially good approach for long-term investors. Investors have been rewarded with an increase in year-over-year revenue at Intel. Revenue was $43.62 billion last fiscal year, compared to $35.13 billion in the previous year. The bottom line has rising earnings year-over-year of $11.46 billion last fiscal year, compared to $4.37 billion in the previous year. Intel's big fat 3.3% yield, combined with earnings beats in the last four quarters, makes Intel a winner even if this quarter is soft.
