By Geoffrey Smith -- Stocks in focus in premarket trade on Friday, 27th January. Please refresh for updates.

  • Intel (NASDAQ: INTC ) stock slumped 9.8% after the chipmaker reported a wider-than-expected loss in the fourth quarter as demand from the electronics sector weakened sharply. PC shipments, a core segment for Intel, are expected to be weak again this year and Intel expects another drop in sales and a further loss in the current quarter.
  • Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD ) stock – another chipmaker exposed heavily to the PC sector – fell 2.3% in sympathy with Intel, while Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA ) stock fell 1.4%.
  • Chevron (NYSE: CVX ) stock fell 1.3% after the oil and gas giant missed elevated expectations for its fourth quarter profit by around 7%, slightly taking the gloss off its mammoth $75 billion buyback announcement on Wednesday.
  • Luxury stocks Hermes International (OTC: HESAY ) and Christian Dior (OTC: CHDRY ) rose to new all-time highs after a decent outlook from sector leader LVMH late on Thursday. LVMH (OTC: LVMUY ) said revenue growth slowed in the fourth quarter but was still up 9% from a year earlier. Profit missed expectations slightly, pushing LVMH (EPA: LVMH ) stock down 0.8% in Paris.
  • American Express (NYSE: AXP ) stock rose 6.6% after the credit card company profited from a rebound in corporate spending on travel and entertainment in the fourth quarter.
  • Hasbro (NASDAQ: HAS ) stock fell 6.2% after the company said it expects to cut around 1,000 jobs in response to weaker demand for its toys and games.
  • Visa (NYSE: V ) stock rose 1.4%, after a modest beat on expectations for both top and bottom line in the fourth quarter.
