Despite Intel's obvious struggles recently, here's one silver lining for Intel investors to be happy about.

What can Intel offer investors as it struggles to diversify from the PC market? In this video, Andrew Tonner suggests that dividend growth is one thing to look at.

The stock has declined 18% over the past year and has been flat for the past five, but the company currently pays a 4% dividend, and that dividend has grown by 14% over the past few years.

Intel will bring on a new CEO to help it navigate its way into the mobile market, and it's struggling to find other business outside the PC market. While those things play out, Andrew says, investors can pocket the 4% dividend plus whatever future dividend growth may come, making the Intel investment a bit less painful during the transition.
