Intel: Buy This Stable Powerhouse Now
Intel (INTC) is doing well on the stock market, but so are many of its competitors. For instance, Arm Holdings (ARM) and CEVA (CEVA) are attracting investors, as is the always competitive IBM (IBM).In the last five years, Intel has shown remarkable profitability and increased in consumer demands. Its stock is not exactly on fire but it is one of the companies that are stable and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Moreover, the report on the first quarter revenue of Intel reinforces the market presence of the company from around the world. Based on the report, Intel has gained $3 billion in cash in the last year. Indeed, Intel is one force to be reckoned with on the stock market. And although Apple (AAPL) is leading the market in electronic-consumer products, which greatly affects Intel because it is tied into PC products only, there are other reasons why Intel remains to be one of the most stable companies out there.

Intel is considered to be the mother of all chipmakers, and the newcomers will need to create something big to beat that.

And, unlike Dell (DELL) which is failing these days as it continues to lose its relevance in the PC world, Intel is strong and continues to find ways to stay related to the needs of small and big companies as well as the regular computer users.To continue reading, click here.
