Repeatedly I have stated investors with long-term holdings want a portion of their portfolio in Intel. It's a general purpose stock; it pays a dividend for yield seekers, it's high-tech for gadget lovers, and it faithfully executes quarter after quarter.
In other words, Intel is the Yellow Labrador Retriever in the stock market.

Advanced Micro Devices, on the other hand, produces excellent products and depending on use and application, superior to the comparable Intel offering.>>Apple iPhone Ad Sets Tone for Smart Home Products in the Pipeline I have firsthand knowledge of the differences between Intel and AMD processors. I've sold thousands of them and dollar-for-dollar I know for most applications, AMD processors are a better value. But therein lies the problem and the difference between AMD the company and AMD the stock. Intel enjoys greater pricing power. All else being equal, Intel processors carry a higher selling price. Intel chips are considered superior, and investors don't need to look further than the stock price to figure it out.
