According to Zacks, “Intel is benefiting from robust performance of the Data Center Group, Internet-of-Things Group, Non-Volatile Memory Solutions and Programmable Solutions Group. These segments form the crux of Intel’s data-centric business model. Further, the launch of Xeon Scalable, Core 8 chips, Myriad X and next-generation desktop processors are key catalysts. Moreover, the Core 8 launch is expected to boost PC market share. Intel recently announced few important partnerships — with BMW, Nissan, Volkswagen AG, and Ferrari — which show Intel’s growing dominance in providing AI platforms which will power future vehicles. We believe that the company’s focus on the self-driving car market will boost sales of processing chips, sensor-chips, cloud software and many more, which will drive top-line growth. However, stiff competition from peers adds to its woes. We note that Intel has underperformed the industry over the past one year.”
