This reasoning sounds much like what Nokia would've thought a few years back. See where they are headed now. I don't think Intel is innovating enough and no Intel is NOT in every electronic device. I don't know what gave you that idea considering Intel does not have analog and is strong only in embedded in the PC market which is their bread and butter. And PC is dying.

I checked intel stock price since 2001... Jan 2001, $20.84, Today $22.73 That's less than 10% gain for more than 10 years !!! where you think it will go next, down ! yeah, if you have your retiremnet fund in it then sell them now.

As I recall, everyone said IBM was dead at one time. Last time I looked, they were one of the top technology providers world wide. If you think Intel is dead or dying, your are not assessing the company or the business properly. Intel IS the largest chip maker in the world. Intel products are used in almost every electronic device in the world. Intel continues to innovate year after year. I would not count them out until some other chip maker can at least match it component line and sales numbers. Currently, there are no companies worth mentioning in the same line with Intel. QED!

that will never happen, Intel is destined to become another fairchild. but don't worry, you can always stand out and build a new fresh intel nowadays and start another chapter in ee industry. intel will be a good target for cockroachs. yeah, if there is another young R. Noyce around now, don't bet he can fight to the CEO position of intel. He'd better start his own business.

truth is always in the hands of a few people. that's also why a democracy like US economy performs worse than like.. China. Certainly, there is also risk associated with dictatorship. In high tech, the key is still star leadership. So maybe amazon or google is better buy nowadays while their founder genius is still young and energetic.

Irony is Intel's stock price has been slowly trending down over the last decade, following the bubble burst.

all in all, intel is doomed. the foundamental reason is it has shifted it's control from tech geeks to average stock owners. those stock owners can chase after a successive company but don't expect them to create one by themselves. They elected some stupid board members and in turn will get a MBA salesman to lead a company which should be lead by a engineer/scientist. Any way, when you talking about marketing oneself who can beat a MBA salesman? whoops is this a original theory? all right reserved, ubm112211
