'Intel has some things going for it, its biggest problem is it is facing competition like it has never faced before. That means margins are going down.'
LOL no it isn't on either account. The biggest competition Intel ever faced was when the relatively cool Athlon64 was released by AMD to face the hot Intel Pentium 4. AMD got to $42 eventually on that processor. Margins have also barely moved as Intel does not need to lower prices for ARM processors.
'The tech guys think Intel also has some kind of monopoly on innovation...don't underestimate hungry players, these guys already kicked Intel's bottom all over the place in mobile. They are now going after Intel's core markets. It will be interesting.'
Err no, Intel still has the mobile market it's interested in, notebooks, all sown up. As to phones that is just a sideline for Intel that it is now getting in to. Going after Core markets ? Yes, but they won't be successful. That brand new ARM A57 64-bit chip coming out in a year or so's time has similar performance to that 10-year old Athlon64 according to ARM's own estimates and will be handled with ease by 14nm Broadwell and its descendants.
the mobile market Intel is interested in ??? What about the mobile market consumers are interested in ?? Intel has failed.
Yeah not much competition in the pipeline,lol, You think they are just gonna let Intel take that CPU money ? BIG no.
Stock prices are driven by growth, Intel's is slowing.
