1 Dow Dividend That's Too Cheap to Ignore

It's been a rough year for Intel (NASDAQ: INTC  ) . The company is down nearly 20%, compared to a 7% climb for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI  ) . 

However, all this downward pressure has made the company an attractive buy today. At 8.5 times earnings, the company comfortably yields 4.6% with only a 37% payout ratio. Despite recent weakness, the Intel's massive size and cash balance should allow it to reinvest for the future and regain its dominance as one of the kings of tech.

However, there is a lot more to consider than just those points discussed here. Don't miss our premium research report on Intel, in which our analyst runs through all of the key topics investors should understand about the chip giant. Better yet, you'll continue to receive updates for an entire year. Click here now to learn more.

    Thanks for the report.

    Agree that INTC is at a good entry point here, offers an attractive yield and deserves consideration for a spot in the dividend/income portion of a balanced portfolio.

    The rumored negotiations with Apple, should they result in a deal, could offer a meaningful catalyst for the shares.

    Regardless, they must move toward mobile, so they will. And I'm happy to be paid rather handsomely to wait. I opened a position about a week ago near these levels.
