    Which would be

    a better buy? PTTRX or INTC? INTC has gone down in the last few months and pays .225/share every quarter.

    • I'm not an Intel fan because of how they treat people and vendors. With that said; the chart for the last year shows that even with the healthy dividen you would have lost money, a lot of money.

      They are getting close to opening that huge new plant in Arizona maybe that will change the negative trend of the stock price.

      If you’re looking to get rich quick PTTRX isn't the place to be, but if you are making long range plans it's a much safer bet.

        Sentiment: Buy

      • This post should not even appear on this board. When you compare PTTRX to a stock like INTC your are comparing a medium Total Return Bond Fund to a stock equity. Each has a place in the market but are not comparables. PTTRX is for those who intend to live off the dividends which keep compounding over and over again the NAV of which is simply determined by dividing the value of the portfolio by the number of shares outstanding . INTC's NAV on the other hand is valued more by the current psycology of the market and has little bearing on its comparable - its book value. You are attempting to bait and switch bond holders into the stock market which is completely inappropriate. If you want to compare bond funds against one another then this is the place to hold that discussion.

        Sentiment: Hold

      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.

      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.
