3. Intel (INTC - Get Report) is a semiconductor company, designing chips for computers and mobile devices.

Since 2008, Intel has grown sales, net income and earnings per share 4.4%, 18% and 20% annually, on average, though, its stock has declined 3% a year over that span. Intel's fourth-quarter net income increased 39% to $3.2 billion, or 59 cents a share, as revenue grew 8.4%, past $11 billion. The gross margin declined marginally to 75%, still remaining near a cyclical high. Its operating margin hovered above 35%, ranking in the 92nd percentile for its industry group. Return on assets widened from 8.2% to 18%, indicating outstanding efficiency improvements.

Intel's stock is notably cheap relative to peer investments.
