Jefferies upgraded Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) from Hold to Buy with a price target of $30.00 (from $27.00).

Analyst Mark Lipacis said, "We believe INTC offers one of the best alpha generation opportunities in semis: 1) it is finally focusing its manufacturing leadership to make MPUs that are lower power, higher performance and cheaper than competitive solutions. This new focus should translate to share gains in sub-$500 tablets, 2-in-1 PCs and handsets. 2) Consensus incorrectly assumes INTC's x86 MPUs have an inherent disadvantage vs ARM, and its 3yr, $60b investment nets to zero advantage."

The firm trimmed FY 2013 EPS from $2.02 to $1.88 but raised FY 2014 EPS from $2.06 to $2.15.
