Strong Q3 report boosts Intel shares

Today was a day thick with earnings reports from companies across the Bay Area and around the world.

Locally, Intel Corp. (INTC), the Santa Clara maker of semiconductor chips, saw a 43 percent rise in quarterly profit on Tuesday and raised its revenue forecast to above Wall Street expectations, sending its shares up 4 percent, according to Reuters.

The stock price rose above the $25.48 Nasdaq close price in after-hours trading.
