Just last month, one of those Fools, CardinalRam, succinctly summed up the bull case case for our community:

[Intel] is just beginning to see the impact of the ATOM processor and it will get better over time. I still think this is a 12+ month play. I also think that UltraBook will be successful over the 1-2 year time frame. Then there is the server market -- there is little competition to who powers the "cloud." They probably won't return to double digit growth, but as undervalued as [Intel] is today and with a [4+% dividend yield], I don't see how they can't outperform.
