Product Releases Driving Intel's Earnings?

April 15, 2010 • Chris

The news of Intel’s earnings over performing hit the headlines today with a sentence in the WSJ that got our attention:

The Silicon Valley chip giant called it the strongest first quarter since the company was founded in 1968, aided by new microprocessors that arrived just as companies and consumers became more receptive to buying computers.

We immediately got curious about this supposed surge in product releases. Is it quantifiable? So we posed the query Product Release Intel and got this view:

Clearly there’s a surge in product release signal (Recorded Future momentum!) prior to/early in Q1 for Intel. From that we may ask a whole series of questions:

  • Could we manually (e.g. assuming we’re a discretionary trader or research analyst) inspect signals like this and use as a heads up to stay on top of this area? Clearly we’d want to go back further in time and review these cycles.
  • Can we systematically ask if product release events correlate or even have causation with trading volume, volatility, and pricing in Intel?
  • What’s the systematic impact of product releases to chip companies or even the entire technology sector? Is there a tradeable systematic impact?

Very compelling questions! Let us know what you think.
