E Daily Stock Pick: Intel

A portfolio of stocks I've been building since September 3 is named Volio. It will eventually hold 52 dividend dogs. Volio is the fifth portfolio I've built (at a one dividend dog per-week pace) since 2014. Five portfolios = V for Volio!

Today I'm reviewing the fifth of five technology stocks striving to join my Volio folio. This could be my twenty-fourth pick for Volio!

That technology sector includes nineteen industries ranging from communication equipment, computers, consumer electronics, and contract manufacturing, to health, information technology and services, to internet, scientific instruments, software, solar, and all such techno-marvels.

My subject today is a large-cap semiconductors fabricator named, Intel Corp. Their trading ticker symbol is INTC. This is my first report about Intel Corp.

Intel Corp is one of the world's largest chipmakers. It designs and manufactures microprocessors for the global personal computer and data center markets. Intel pioneered the x86 architecture for microprocessors.

It is also the prime proponent of Moore's law for advances in semiconductor manufacturing. While Intel's server processor business has benefited from the shift to the cloud, the firm has also been expanding into new adjacencies as the personal computer market has declined. These include areas such as the Internet of Things, memory, artificial intelligence, and automotive.

Intel has been active on the merger and acquisitions front, recently acquiring Altera, Mobileye, Nervana, Movidius, and Habana Labs in order to assist its efforts in non-PC arenas.

It serves original equipment manufacturers, original design manufacturers, industrial and communication equipment manufacturers, and cloud service providers.

The company was founded in 1968 and is headquartered in Santa Clara, California.

I use three key data points to gauge dividend equities or funds like Intel Corp:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns
