Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star silentrumble, succinctly summed up the bull case of our community:

Intel has an overabundance of technical prowess and is the market leader in PC and server processors. They were slow in setting their targets on the mobile space, but now that they have, it will not be long before they have a very competitive offering in that area. In the meantime, enjoy the generous dividend.

Of course, that short pitch doesn't come close to telling the entire story on Intel.
