Ross Seymore, a top 18% analyst from Deutsche Bank maintains INTC with a hold rating and lowers their INTC price target from $38.00 to $35.00, on Sep 8, 2022.

Ruben Roy, a top 10% analyst from Stifel Nicolaus initiates coverage on INTC with a hold rating and announces their INTC price target of $32.00, on Sep 8, 2022.

The company's turnaround strategy* is still in its "early innings," the analyst said.

Significant capital needs will negatively impact free cash flow through 2024, Roy predicted.

With all that said, Intel's ability to execute its process roadmap remains "a question mark," Roy concluded.

Intel Corporation shares have lost 40.51% since the beginning of 2022, against S&P 500's 15.86% decline.

* From here: According to Intel, the company plans to spend around 35% of its revenue, or approximately $27B, $29B, and $31B on capital expenditures in FY 2022, FY 2023, and FY 2024, respectively. The company doesn't expect to be producing any meaningful free cash flow during this time and only in 2025 and beyond, according to its plan, will it be able to cool off its spending.
