    Should I buy INTEL if I'm looking for th

    I'm a young investor who thinks INTEL's price is cheap. What's
    the long run path for INTEL? Any speculation?

    Thanks

    • The Merced is a 1999 chip that will not hit it's stride until 2001, and will not positioned as a mainstream CPU. No software will be native to it initially and it will perform poorly on current software. It is certainly a very compelling technology, but give it time to mature.
      Intel can regain market share, but they have to cut prices and profits to do it. I expect they will, but they will not make nearly as much on it as the are accustomed to.
      I think the Slot 2 chips will help out a lot too, and they will be out around the middle of this year. Not all is bad for Intel, but the next few months look a little rocky.

    • that with the new Merced chip being far

      superior that it'll dominate the market

      place for the fast PC's and I heard that

      Intel is also making a new chip for their

      sub 1000 PC's so they will own the market

      forever. They have no where to go but up

      from here.

    • I am not short on Intel, I would have before it fell, which was obviously going to happen. I still get the enjoyment of badgering people who did not listen to me when I told them to sell their shares of Intel. It was so obvious what would happen, just like it is now.
      It is a good company, not a great one. No where near Microsoft. I am sure anyone buying stock will make money on Intel at some point, they are not going out of business, have not been hurt in any serious way, and still have a lot of opportunity ahead of them.
      The times have changed, however, and the desktop market will not be as lucrative as it has been. I think the next few months will have Intel's price dropping more, but eventually it will recover. We will see...

    • so are short still

      must be frustrating

      i dont know english but i do know numbers-arabic, roman, hebrew

      cant know everything-someday ill learn english

    • I bought INTC at 73 14 months ago. It's 76 now. This is a good company, but it's going through some tough times now. There
      is no reason to believe that this stock will permanently move up beyond the 70's any time soon. This stock was at 70 last fall
      when the Dow was 800-1000 points lower than it is now. It rose, along with the market, early this year and hit 95 before falling
      off. After the earnings announcement it fell to the mid 70's, where it has stayed. All the while the larger market continues to
      rise.

      It is likely that at some time in the not too distant future, the market will correct somewhat, and INTC should be available for less, probably less than 70. You can buy it then. If you don't want to wait, then I suggest MSFT. Then if a few months from now you happen to see INTC really cheap you can sell the MSFT and buy the INTC, otherwise just keep the MSFT.

    • Justin;

      Having read by now the repiles from TA152H and jb2129,
      you are probably more confused than ever.

      Please keep in mind that the message boards are only that
      vicious when we are all losing money.

      My advice: find a message board with a civil discussion.
      That is a stock that is going up.

      You can call it TheSweetLife Indicator.

      Enjoy: IlDolceVita.

    • To not be invested in Intel for the long-term is to believe that technology wil not move forward and this company will never
      develop a better, faster chip. The company is a leader for a reason, it dedicates mucho $$ to R & D and is consistantly ahead of its
      competition in terms of product development, pricing, production and distribution. Your stomach might turn for the next three months
      until CPQ works it inventory problem out which was a direct result of Intel pre-announcing bad earnings. This is the grandfather
      of all tech companies and unless the world decides to move backwards, Intel will be out in front for a long time to come, at
      least until someone figures out a way to provide another product in such a fashion that everybody who uses it turns a profit.

      Do yourself a favor, don't listen to any of the nipples who back Advanced Micro Devices who come on the board preaching that Intel is dead and they (AMD) have the next generation chip that everyone will want. Crap! AMD has and will always have production problems, IBM or no IBM. Intel is one of the best places to park your cash for the long haul.

    • The long run to what? Poverty?
      Be careful with Intel, they are vulnerable right now. Even when looking at the long run, you still want to get it as cheap as possible
      The next two quarters will be dismal, they are non-competitive in the fasting growing segment, the low-end. Their
      server/workstation chips get crushed by the RISC machines, and Compaq's firesale is going to impact Intel chip shipments. The Pentium II and
      Pentium Pro are the most disappointing chips in the Intel line, they are not substantially faster than their predecessor and offer
      only speed and multiprocessing as advantages. Intel is having a very difficult time convincing customers that they need Pentium
      II's. In April, they will drop the prices enough to move the market to the Slot 1, but only by significantly reducing their
      profits. AMD is selling as many chips as they can make, Cyrix chips are competing with the fastest PII's in integer performance, and
      IDT has just signed a foundry agreement with IBM to produce their chips. On top of this, if Intel is too aggresive in
      eliminating these companies, the federal government will be all over them.
      Intel's time making huge profits on the common desktop is over, but they can attack the workstation market aggresively. The slot 2 chips will compete much better with the other workstations out there, and they will multiprocessor machines with a very high price per processor. It will be several months before this happens, so wait. Quite a bit of bad will happen to Intel before these chips exact their revenge, so try to time it so you can purchase at the lowest price. 77 or so is not it.
      Also, hedge any purchase with either puts or by selling calls. The techs are very bouncy right now, so be conservative.

      • all that info in your message-unfortunately you cant see the forest for the trees of info. stand back and look at the top-there is one mighty oak-amd is loosing its shirt-sells chips and loses money on each.

        all the info you state is known-any good info boy?

        no doubt yu are short-and also stupid

        any experienced market player knows 75 is strong support-can hold as long as not broken with momentum.intc holding is like going down in an otherwise up market-

        day will come when we will clock the bears-as happened betw. dec. and feb.do yourself a favor, cover the short.

      • You wanna' explain to me how the kid can be more conservative than buying one share and dollar-costing for the next 20 years?

      • What is your deal dude? You're either here bashing Intel or on the AMD board bashing them. How could honestly tell a kid who's looking to buy long-term to TIME the market? How much further do you think Intel will fall, and whatever target you have, then apply that to all technology companies and the NASDAQ because no one will escape the havoc if Intel falls out of bed.

        And don't gimme none of your slot 2, tech-geek crap! AMD is losing money with no cash, NSM is losing money BECAUSE of Cyrix, with little cash. This is fact, these are unprofitable companies because of Intel and will remain so. Intel is buying more stakes in more companies than you probably know about and will have a hand in everything related to a computer a lot sooner that AMD or Cyrix or any other pig you can think of.

        I wonder if you were sitting at your desk in 1990 thinking the 286 was the shit and technology couldn't get any better.

        By the way, this is novice investor, don't tell him to write naked calls! Get your act together man!
