The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.
Over the next couple of weeks, John and David will be revisiting some calls they made on individual stocks of the Dow. Today, they're checking out Intel. This company is up about 4% in 2012 compared with a roughly similar gain for the Dow average as a whole. David and John thought Intel would outperform the Dow over the next five years. The stock has taken a bit of a hit following earnings. The company lowered its guidance for the year, citing an economic slowdown. Intel isn't the only chip company to do so. AMD and Qualcomm both made the same comments. David still thinks Intel will beat the market over the next five years. The company is attempting to give ARM a run for its money in chips for mobile devices. It still generates tons of cash and sports a 3.6% dividend yield that will continue to grow.
