Totally different types of investments. However, Intel is getting more and more attractive as an income play. If the dividend yield reaches 5%, I might even buy a stake. More and more, it resembles an utility. 'Same applies to Microsoft.
Intc is a good buy.....but they were talking about how VLO and all refineries are good investments. We are in the middle of a hugh oil producing nation and all the refineries are going to be busy even if the U.S doesnt use as much. We will refine it here and send it overseas.
So I'm debating between VLO and MRO....maybe a little each when prices drop again. I think when the debt ceiling arguments start, stocks will go down and will be a good time to buy.
