Stock of the Day: Intel

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.

Yesterday, Intel reported earnings, and it was hard for investors to know what to think. Revenue was up. Earnings were up. But guidance for the remainder of the year was lowered. Unlike AMD, it was able to use its strength in the server market to overcome a weaker PC market. John and David believe this quality tech company remains very attractive for long-term investors. Its dividend yield is 3.6%, which is higher than the average yield for the Dow. And management remains committed to returning capital to shareholders, while at the same time investing in the future. This will bode well for the stock's performance in the future.

Intel is one of the stronger dividend-payers in the Dow.
