Intel Q1 Earnings Flat at $3.2B

Intel Summary Q1 2011 Intel Q1 2011 financial results were about the same as the prior quarter, a net income of about $3.2B for each quarter. Gross profit margin dropped, even though total revenues were a record $12.8B. Financial position continues strong. Intel's 2011 guidance, business outlook, is below the charts. The Q4 2010 financial statements were restated plus there was an accounting change, making QoQ comparisons difficult.

Intel Income Statement Q1 2011 Intel reported record total revenues of $12.8 billion, $3.2 billion net income, and $0.56 earnings per share. From the prior quarter Q4 2010, total revenues were up +12.1%, net income down -0.60%, and earnings per share were unchanged at 0.00%. From the prior year Q1 2010, total revenues were up +24.7%, net income up +29.4%, and earnings per share up +30.2%. The Q1 2011 gross margin dropped to 61.38% from 67.47% QoQ. The operating margin of 32.4% and net margin of 24.60% dropped accordingly.

Intel Balance Sheet Q1 2011 Total assets have reached an all-time high of $65.5 billion, after dipping as low as $48.5 billion in Q1 2009. Intel continues liquid and well capitalized. The current ratio, current assets / total assets, dropped to 34.8%. Capital to assets, total stockholders' equity / total assets, dropped to 72.2%, which below the historical range for Intel (75% to 80%). The liquidity and capital ratios decreased as a result of an accounting change, an increase in property, plant, and equipment (+$1.6B), and a restatement of the Q4 2010 financial statements. A new balance sheet item appeared in long-term assets, Identified Intangible Assets, of $6.872B.


Intel Performance by the Quarters (Charts)

Intel Earnings Per Share (Chart) Below is a chart of quarterly earnings per diluted share. Current earnings per share continued at $0.56 QoQ, but have remained above $0.50 for 4 consecutive quarters, since Q2 June 2010.


Intel Total Revenues, Operating Income, and Net Income (Chart) Below is a chart of quarterly total revenues, quarterly operating income, and quarterly net income. Total revenues continue to be impressive and are at an all-time high of $12.8 billion in Q1 2011. Current operating income of $4.1B appears to be an all-time high. Current net  income of $3.16B is just below the Q4 2010 all-time high of $3.18B.


Intel Gross Margin, Operating Margin, and Net Margin (Chart) Below is a chart of quarterly gross margin, operating margin, and net margin. Gross margin for Q1 2011 of 61.38% dropped from Q4 2010 of 64.64%. Operating margin correspondingly decreased to 32.37%, which is the lowest since Q4 2009. Net margin for also decreased to 24.60%, but is still historically high.


Intel Return on Assets (Chart) Below is a chart of annual return on average assets per quarter. The total net income for the most recent 4 quarters is divided into average assets for the most recent 4 quarters to obtain a rolling annualized ROA, an annualized return on average assets for the 12 months (4 quarters) ended. The ROA dipped during the Global Recession but has improved for 4 consecutive quarters, as previous, poor-performance quarters drop out of the rolling, moving ROA to result in an increasing ROA. The Q1 2011 ROA was an impressive 20.46%. This indicates very effective and efficient deployment of assets.


Intel Geographic Revenues (Chart) Below is a chart of revenues by region. For the current Q1 2011 reported, the only noteworthy trend was an increase in Americas from 20.04% to 21.13% QoQ and a decrease in Europe from 13.81% to 12.80% QoQ.


Intel Growth Rates (Chart) Below is a chart of the quarterly (QoQ, Q/Q, quarterly change) growth rates for revenues and earnings per share. Intel is not a high growth company and stock but a very large technology company ($65B+ total assets). Growth rates are expected to be subdued now that Intel has bounced back from the lows of the Great Recession. Q1 2011 net revenues continued upwards +12.13% QoQ but earnings per share was flat at 0.00% mostly as a result of a decreased gross profit margin. The chart below covers only some recent quarters through the latest quarter reported. The rapid plunge in total revenues and earnings per share and the subsequent rebound as a result of the Great Recession and subsequent recovery resulted in some extreme percentages that obscure recent data.
