Based on recent announcement is there any risk to the current dividend?
In the CC, they were specifically asked about their cash. Intel said they are very comfortable with their level of cash and went on to say they would be comfortable with less. That seems to me to be a broad hint that they would raise the divy.
They actually hinted that they'd be comfortable raising it again this year. They are NOT going to lower it when they are hauling in 12 Billlion a year PROFIT.
That's quite a profit!
