Intel Reports Fifth Consecutive Quarter of Record Revenue

Intel Corporation today reported its fifth consecutive quarter of record revenue, with double-digit revenue growth across all business segments. On a Non-GAAP basis, revenue was $13.1 billion, operating income was $4.2 billion, net income was $3.2 billion, and EPS was 59 cents. On a GAAP basis, the company reported second-quarter revenue of $13.0 billion, operating income of $3.9 billion, net income of $3.0 billion, and EPS of 54 cents. The company generated approximately $4.0 billion in cash from operations, paid cash dividends of $961 million, and used $2.0 billion to repurchase 93 million shares of common stock.

"We achieved a significant new milestone in the second quarter, surpassing $13.0 billion in revenue for the first time," said Paul Otellini, Intel president and CEO. "Strong corporate demand for our most advanced technology, the surge of mobile devices and Internet traffic fueling data center growth, and the rapid rise of computing in emerging markets drove record results. Intel's 23 percent revenue growth in the first half and our increasing confidence in the second half of 2011 position us to grow annual revenue in the mid-20 percent range."

I noticed this:

The platform average selling price (ASP) was approximately flat sequentially and up year-over-year.

And wondered, what exactly is the ASP? $200? $300? $100? I wonder if it's a consumer based price or mass vendor price.

interesting that it's 5 quarters of record profits and yet it stock prices are pretty stagnant. It's been hovering in the low 20's ever since late 2009. Make you wonder how many record profit quarters intel has to do before they can return the the glory days of 2001-2002 when they were worth 50-60% more than they are now.

Microsoft is the same way. They had record revenue for many years straight I believe and their stock price is pretty low considering.
