On CAPS, 94% of the 10,056 members who have rated Intel believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, damon1085, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive bargain opportunity:

INTC has a strangle hold on powerful computer chips used in desktops, laptops, and most importantly servers and data centers. The demand for all these chips has been declining in recent years, but it will not die out. This is where mobile comes in. INTC is losing in the mobile market, but they're just now making an effort to create a viable mobile processor. It won't be long before their R&D teams get up to speed and you'll see "Intel Inside" on many mobile devices.
