Earnings Outlook: Intel earnings: After CEO departure, chip maker needs a win

Intel Corp. needs strong gains in its core personal-computer business as well as its server segment to overcome uncertainties about management succession and its manufacturing processes in the wake of a sudden shake-up.

Intel INTC, -0.69% is scheduled to report second-quarter earnings after the bell Thursday, a day after investors get a clearer view of results from Advanced Micro Devices Inc.AMD, +14.14% which may affect the view of Dow-component Intel. Coinciding with a rare quarterly surge in PC sales, some analysts are speculating that AMD’s 7nm chip-making processes are now on par or pulling ahead of Intel’s 10nm processes.
