Is Intel Stock a Buy Today?


Struggling semiconductor giant Intel has had a rough go over the past 18 months. The company remains significantly tied to a global PC market in which things have gone from bad to worse. Worse yet, this PC pain appears likely to last well into next year, if not longer. And perhaps more unfortunately, this come at a time where Intel finds itself still on the outside looking in on a market for mobile processors that continues to grow healthily.

Acting accordingly, investors have hammered Intel. And although the stock still remains down over the past year, shares might have potentially found a bottom. In fact, the company has rallied impressively over the past several months, albeit from some truly bottom-of-the-barrel valuations.
