Despite beating earnings estimates by 8 cents a share and beating revenue projections by $200 million, Intel's shares are down 5.64 percent in after-hours trading to $35.62. Weak guidance for the fourth quarter appears to be the main reason, the chip giant is guiding fourth-quarter revenue of $15.7 billion, plus or minus $500 million, which is less than the analysts' estimate of $15.87 billion. It seems like a big after-hours punishment but even after this 5% decline Intel is still trading close to 52-week highs.
