The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and Motley Fool Pro analyst Bryan Hinmon discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Bryan highlights Intel. While the company recently blamed Thai flooding for slowing growth, the long-term story still looks positive, with Intel seeing strong growth across emerging markets. Bottom line, Bryan says he'd rather place his bets with Intel as the company bears down its resources on smaller competitors.
