3 Things to Watch With This Dow Stock: Intel

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which senior technology analyst Eric Bleeker and consumer-goods editor and analyst Austin Smith discuss topics around the investing world.

In this edition, Eric and Austin look at three things investors should be watching at Intel. The first area Eric believes investors should focus in on is emerging-market growth. That's the area investors have keyed in on, but it presents opportunities not only to PCs, but also in Intel's server division as data centers in China grew at 8 times the world average over the past five years. Aside from emerging-market opportunities, Eric also believes Intel's manufacturing lead and foray into mobile will be two other storylines investors must watch in the coming years. Watch the video for his complete thoughts.
