Just last week, one of those Fools, MrPipes, tapped the stock as a particularly attractive turnaround opportunity:

I don't think [Intel] is a short-term win but in the long term, Intel is [recognizing] the need to expand in a very big way into the smart phone mobile market. It has the margin issue to overcome (willing to accept a lower margin) but if this ship can turn and look to make this up with volume, and I believe the signs are there that it is turning, Intel can move into this mobile market [successfully].
