"Intel's years of product development and cost cutting are paying off now. Positive trends of corporate spending combined with what was characterized by management as healthy supply chain inventory should allow Intel to prove June quarter as conservative," Thomas Weisel analyst Kevin Cassidy noted in a research report cited by

Reuters.

Cassidy, for one, raised his price target for Intel stock to $34 from $31.

The technology giant's outstanding first-quarter report has certainly led many to believe that a full tech sector recovery is on its way.
