    Dividend

     

    Despite all of the noise about Intel's "death", they still pay that dividend. The question is, do they raise it this year? If so, by how much?

    • I think they will still raise it this year to keep their streak intact. But they could wait until the 4th quarter to pay it and still keep their annual increasing dividend streak alive. That being said, i am thinking the raise this year will be $0.01/quarter or $0.94/anually.

    • No...see below

      FINANCIAL STRENGTH & DIVIDEND
      Our financial strength rating for Intel is High. Intel's credit
      ratings are mainly A1 or A2, per Moody's. However, if margins
      continue to compress and cash decline accelerates, we will consider
      a Medium-High rating.
      Intel's cash & equivalents and investments totaled $17.3 at
      1Q13. Intel's cash & equivalents and investments totaled $18.8
      billion at year-end 2012, reflecting $6.2 billion in debt issued in
      4Q12 as well as strong cash flows. Year-end 2012 cash was up
      substantially from $10.5 billion at the end of 3Q12, which was
      down from $13.65 billion at the end of 2Q12; the cash decline
      primarily reflected the $3 billion equity investment in ASML. Cash
      & equivalents were $14.8 billion at the end of 2011. Prior to the
      acquisitions of McAfee ($7.7 billion) and Infineon WLS ($1.4
      billion), cash was $21.9 billion as of the end of 2010. Cash was
      $13.49 billion at the end of 2009, $1.8 billion at the end of 2008,
      and $10.0 billion at the end of 2007.
      Total debt was $13.2 billion at 1Q13. Total debt at the end of
      2012 was $13.45 billion, as a result of $6.2 billion in debt issued in
      4Q12. Total debt at the end of 3Q12 was $7.10 billion. Total debt
      at the end of 2011 was $7.3 billion, up from $2.16 billion at
      midyear 2011. On 9/15/11, Intel issued $5 billion in debt. Debt
      was $2.31 billion at the end of 2010, flat with midyear 2010 and
      up from $2.21 billion at year-end 2009.
      Cash flow from operations was $4 billion in 1Q13. Cash flow
      from operations was $18 billion in 2012. Cash flow from
      operations was $20.9 billion in 2011; $16.7 billion in 2010; and
      $11 billion in 2009.
      Intel repurchased $500 million of its shares in 1Q13. Share
      repurchases totaled $5.5 billion in 2012. Intel repurchased over
      $10 billion of its stock in 2011.
      In each quarter, Intel pays about $1 billion in dividends. Intel
      raised its quarterly dividend by 16% to $0.21 per common share in
      May 2011, and to $0.225 per quarter in May 2012. The current
      rate implies an annualized payout of $0.90. Given strains on the
      balance sheet, we are not modeling dividend growth in 2014. Our
      annual dividend forecasts are $0.90 for 2013 and 2014.

    • No. Duh. If they are having the borrow money to do a minor stock buyback, what makes you think that they have money to raise the dividend?

    • we found out in May the last 2 years. I wouldn't be expecting an increase this May however.

    • re invest that dividend buy buying more is the best option imo. It's like compound intrest. :)
