Wenn ich mich richtig erinnere, waren die Öl Lagerbestände letzte mal noch recht positiv, minimal zumindest. Da Öl schön am fallen ist denke ich mal, das es diesmal sogar etwas besser ausieht. Und der Dax bekommt frischen Schwung.
First Albany hat die Schätzungen für Intel reduziert. Die Analysten verweisen auf die Unternehmensprognosen in Richtung einer niedrigeren Bruottmarge und eines abgeschwächten Erlöswachstums. Analyst Auguste Richard geht jedoch davon aus, dass jene Schwäche im Kurs der Intel-Aktie bereits enthalten ist. Intel werde daher weiterhin mit "buy" und Kursziel $24 eingestuft. Der weltgrößte Chiphersteller hat am Vortag nach Börsenschluss die gesenkten Erwartungen übertroffen, aber angedeutet, dass zum vierten Quartal mit schwächeren Umsätzen zu rechnen sei. Der Analyst ist nun der Ansicht, dass Intel im vierten Quartal Erlöse von $8,9 Mio und einen Gewinn von $28 Cents je Aktie ausweisen wird, was unter den ursprünglichen Schätzungen von 31 Cents je Aktie und $9,2 Mrd liegt.
