  • Intel: Why I'm Skeptical Of Additional Upside  [View article]
    I have this morning $ I shall never read another INTEL article again Bill.

    Until they correct their corporate culture, in my mind the single most important and underrated aspect of any corporation other then financial well withal and technological and production & capacity, which INTEL has in spades, you most have the leadership and culture to make it come to fruition. I fear INTEL is too large and too set in it's ways to compete with it's less encumbered rivals. In just around 40 years it has gone from Tesla to Chrysler using auto makers as a metaphor.
    To Brain K. I say focus on changing the culture and get ahead of a curve for once.

    I do now follow, and will continue to do so, your other contributions with great interest.

    Also I read your profile today and see you are a graduate of Lehigh University. My father also graduated from night school there while working at Bethlehem Steel so I now know your quality.

    I feel it is important in the new year to make amends for wrong behaviors of the past. That is all I am trying to accomplish here.

    Warmest regards,

    Tom Patton

    Now that all my $37.50 Jan 16 options have expired -worthless- I would like to offer my profound apologies to the author for all the attacks on him for hating INTEL.

    Suffice to say our sentiments on INTEL are now in lock step.

    Bill- you were very right and I could not have been- and expensively so- wrong.

    But when you hold an option(s) for 16 months you have to defend your turf on all fronts and hope against hope if you are to have the slightest chance of being vindicated.

    My sincerest apologies,

    Tom P

  • Linley Group: Recent Intel hires could bring about major culture change  [View news story]
    How long does it take to stop an air craft carrier that has been heading in the wrong direction for since at least 2008?

    Corporate Internal Culture change at INTEL may take a long, long time. Other outsiders have been brought in in the past and have blended instead of disrupting the unhealthy culture that permeates INTEL.

    Here is to hoping I am wrong ....................

    I love how everyone loves to correct people on SA when they give the slightest bit of what they consider incorrect information.

    If you can not pick up the sarcasm & joking undertone of my comment then by all means please try to get out a little more.

    So you contribute your diatribes for a living? Interesting.

    20 to 25 well researched articles a month surely leaves you little time for any other full time profession.

    Hi Bruce,

    Don't let yourself be sucked by Mr. Maurer- he just can not tolerate anyone saying anything nice about INTEL.

    Why can't someone, other then Bruce Burnworth and Alex Cho, see that INTC is doing so many things right now?

    Under the direction of BK, who has worked hard to change their corporate culture issues which were the underlying problem with everything, and cut them some of slack.

    It is hard to bring an Air Craft Carrier to a full stop, which large companies are and he has done,and to and have it turned back into the right direction, which I believe he has also done. He addressed the corporate cultural problem at the investors week presentation in late November, as did many others in management about this, and recognized for the last 18 months they have worked hard to change this problem. Very few senior management figures address this kind of issue openly which should impress you greatly.

    They are focusing on the right things that are key to, getting their act together, made a prudent acquisitions in ALTERA, RECON, SAFFRON, etc , brought in outside high level executives to break up "the culture" - so why are so many people on SA so unbelievably negative?

    Why focus so much on the micro nit picking on every minute "techy" issue, stand back, and look at the bigger story here that is going on here.

    And collect a healthy dividend while doing it.

    This is more good news that comes a year, or years,too late.

    My advice - buy Intel leaps for 2020 because anything promised earlier will come 3 years late

    You are always skeptical with anything that has to do with INTEL Mr. Maurer!

    It is a scratched record with you and your needle is always stuck when comes to INTEL. Anyone who thinks I am exaggerating go back and look at Mr. Maurer's last 10 articles on INTEL. Mr Maurer has made a cottage industry for himself about writing negative articles on INTEL on SA.

    This is not a personal attack as there have been other solid, objective contributions by Mr. Maurer on other companies not called INTEL.

    Alex- you take a lot of guff here and you are , in general, more positive on INTEL's future outlook then the overwhelming amount of contributors on SA.

    Please come out and defend yourself because no one wants you to be right more then me.

    Thank You

    Please stick with the bullet point format. They should make all SA writers write in bullet points.
    It makes for better reading and less long winded pontifications.

    Great article. Concise and to the point.
