Jefferies maintains a 'Hold' on Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) price target raised from $27 to $31.

Analyst, Mark Lipacis, said, "INTC is benefitting from product cycles on the client side (Ivy Bridge) and servers (Romley), and we expect the combination of ultrabooks and Windows 8 to drive growth in 2H12. These positives are partially offset by elevated expectations for revenues, pricing and gross margins. We think the stock appreciates, but not as much as more out-of-favor stocks and stocks with leverage."

Jefferies raises FY12 EPS estimate from $2.46 to $2.57 and FY13 $2.75 to $2.85.
