Baird analyst Tristan Gerra reiterated an Outperform rating and boosted estimates and his price target on Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) to $42.00 (from $40.00) after the company raised its Q3 revenue outlook.

The analyst notes the initial iPhone7 teardown shows Intel’s baseband inside and they estimate 40% market share and $12-$13 content. In addition, they continue to believe Intel will retain its market share position in the iPhone8. They believe engagement with Apple could eventually lead to a foundry partnership, a few years out.

"We think currently accelerating data center order momentum will help Intel’s outlook in 4Q and potentially continuing into 1Q17," Gerra commented. "Our initial PC unit outlook for 2017 is above consensus. Initial iPhone7 teardown shows Intel’s baseband inside. We continue to believe Intel will retain its market share position in the iPhone8, which should further and meaningfully reduce mobile losses in 2018."

The firm raised FY 2016 EPS from $2.00 to $2.05 and FY 2017 EPS from $2.42 to $2.45.
