Why This Chip Powerhouse Won't Recover in 2013

Intel (NASDAQ: INTC  ) has been the second-worst performing Dow stock of 2012, behind only Hewlett-Packard (NYSE: HPQ  ) . Will 2013 be the year it bounces back? In this video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner looks at Intel's three main revenue streams: its PC client group, mobile chips, and cloud servers. With the stagnation in the PC market and Intel's proven difficulty so far in breaking into mobile in a meaningful way, cloud servers may be the only significant growth driver, but even in this space, where Intel holds 94% of the market share, the moat is starting to spring some leaks.

However, that market is maturing, and Intel finds itself in a precarious situation longer term if it doesn't find new avenues for growth. In this premium research report on Intel, 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.
