Shares of Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) are indicated to open fractionally lower Thursday after Morgan Stanley initiated coverage with a Underweight rating, the firm's equivalent to a "Sell."

The firm sees limited earnings growth through 2014 as ASPs stop rising, unit growth slows and cost rise.

Morgan Stanley's analyst sees EPS going from $2.53 in 2011, to $2.37 in 2014; which is well below the 2014 consensus of $2.90.

At the same time the firm is bullish on Analog Devices (NYSE: ADI), Maxim (Nasdaq: MXIM) and SanDisk (Nasdaq: SNDK) - launching coverage on each at Overweight.
