Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis reiterated a Buy rating and $32 price target on Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) saying a 2016 bull case suggest EPS of $3.00. The firm is also a buyer of the stock ahead of Intel's Q4 report.

Long term our analysis indicates that Intel could have a 50% pricing advantage in processors in 12 months and a 66% in 36 months, which leads us to model share gains in tablets and smartphones and project a bull case EPS scenario of ~$3 in 2016. Lipacis said. Near term, we think momentum investors will find Intel's bottoming gross margins and low expectations difficult to ignore. INTC remains our top big cap pick - we're buyers in front of the earnings call.
