Intel profit up slightly, shares fall after hours

Intel posted fourth-quarter net earnings of $2.6 billion, or 51 cents a share, compared with $2.5 billion, or 48 cents a share, in the year-ago quarter as the chipmaker grapples with a shrinking PC industry and finds support from demand for more servers.

Fourth-quarter revenue was $13.8 billion, compared with $12.5 billion in the year-ago quarter, it said in a statement on Thursday. Intel forecast revenue of $12.8 billion, plus or minus $500 million, for the first quarter, which ends in March.

Analysts had expected $13.72 billion in revenue for the fourth quarter and $12.79 billion for the normally slower first quarter, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Shares of Intel were down 1.73 percent in extended trade after closing down 0.5 percent at $26.54 on the Nasdaq.
