Counting both technology and telecom stocks, the Dow Jones Industrial Average boasts seven stocks that fall into either category, which represents nearly 20% of the overall weighting in the composite. But these aren't your run-of-the-mill growth companies. In fact, most of the companies in the index fit the bill of mature, dividend-paying stalwarts, versus the kinds of high-growth businesses more often associated with the tech or telecom space. However, that doesn't necessarily mean these companies aren't worth investors' time. The Fool's technology editor recently sat down to sift through the tech stocks on the Dow and find the best ones. Today, we're putting semiconductor powerhouse Intel under the microscope. Listen on to find out if today's stock is a winner or loser in this space.
