    I'm a new investor with not a lot of money. Is $INTC a good bet for me?

    • Liddokun: Stock trading is pretty much about investor sentiment. Yes some stock will plunge seemingly without any reason. Even if the company is good.

    • Liddokun: The PC market is pretty stagnant lately. Everyone is switching to mobile devices these days.

    • Ocean Man: Take a look at a 12-year chart for INTC. Notice that it hasn't gone up. And the "your business is dying" argument is probably at a high
      2/22/13
    • Ocean Man: point right now. It could go up, and some people like the yield, but there are better alternatives. Goldman price target for INTC is 16.

    • Liddokun: IMHO I'd put my money on $QCOM

    • Buffet_or_Broke: There is so many things to consider, I was a complete newbie just a few years ago and I learn many more things everyday.

    • Perkins Cove: Thanks for coming to the conference room OM. I knew you would know the right way to look at $INTC.

    • Perkins Cove: iccomo, you could help the Stocktalkers by giving us some more info. As a start, are you interested in investing long term, or short term?

    • Liddokun: Right now the market is pretty volatile due to the impending "fiscal cliff". Could be good opportunity but also huge risk.
      2/22/13
    • Liddokun: You can either take a big risk for big reward (or big loss) or wait for the market to stabilize first. Lots of decisions to be made.

    • futureguy: They have invested a lot into research and still trying to come back with something new . I would not recomment INTC for now atleast .
