    No increase. Dividend growth investors will be disappointed.

    Anybody who follows the company's fundamentals should not be surprised. No FCF growth, no dividend growth. Period.

    While not surprised, I'm still disappointed.

    I'm with jculley. I didn't expect it but it would have been great to get a little something extra.

    Personally I switched bond money into INTC when INTC was at $20, not money oriented towards dividend growth. There's a lot less risk in INTC falling back under $20 then there is in bond underperfomance.

    I agree Ashraf. (Luv your articles) I was not surprised, but I figured that INTC would give at least a token 1 cent raise to reward their shareholders, keep their YoY dividend increase streak alive and to show that Management believes the future is brighter than the analyst say. They have the cash, OUR cash! Disappointed but not surprised. Being an income investor, I want my money to grow not stagnate. For me, a divvy MUST increase each year at a rate higher (much higher) than the rate of inflation. This is the reason why I took some, not all, of my INTC money off the table. I still believe in INTC but just a little less as actions speak louder than words.

    Sold half on the last announcement and will now sell the remaining shares on an up day.

    INTC is doing something that few other major companies are doing or seem inclined to do-investing in the future through substantial capex instead of endless buybacks. I am willing to wait and see if this capital allocation is well grounded and successful and in the meantime happily collect a yield on cost of 4.5%. Once a fan of buybacks, I have soured on their universal use by one and all no matter what the price of the stock or alternative available investment opportunities. For example, I am long DE because I thought it was mispriced when I bought, but management historically has had a penchant for buying back the stock at elevated prices. If I see that going forward, I will flatten that position.
