Long Term investors like me LOVE Intel staying low as long as possible
Dividend rising, stock price not. Long term divididend reinvestors DREAM. Intel loves it, too, as they can retire more shares and one day the EPS will explode as a result of a booming market and lower share count. Don't expect Intel to try and pump the stock like Wally Clever does.
You are a fool if you think a stagnating stock price is a dividend growth investor's dream. If you like pure income, go buy the INTC 2041 senior notes. The rest of us would like growing EPS, which implies growing dividend and share price. Intel needs to deliver on its promises of growth in this area by the second half 2013 or it will be hellish for the stock price.
