Its quarterly gross margin figures came in at 54.8%, missing the 56.8% consensus. Also, it is lower than last year’s 60.4%.
The revenues for Q4 are forecasted to be $17.4 billion, with an EPS of $1.10. The market consensus is for $17.34 billion in revenues, with earnings of $1.06 per share.
Intel expects the revenue to grow 5% to $75.3 billion for the full year, while the EPS could reach $4.90.
The Q3 figures came a few days after Intel announced that it is in talks with SK Hynix to sell its NAND business for $9 billion.
Following the report, Intel stock price fell 10%.
