This company is being deliberatey ignored by the investment community. The biggest reason is the CEO who continues to throw cold water on it during every cc. The death of the PC bs by Motley Fool and others, that have never been refuted by management etc. What we need; being the leading chip manufacturer is a bona fide offer to buy INTC. The good news would most likely be a 50% premium, the ousting of the senior management who completely ignor the stock holder and the liquidation of investor relations who do nothing for the stockholders.
INTEL simply hasn't had aany positive news strong enough to convince the majority of traders and institutions that the future earnings will improve. They are making a fortune selling options on the stock and leaving it languish. It could turn on a dime either way, but no catalyst to do that yet.
