as of March 6, 2023
$106 billion cap seems like a high number considering income and revenue figures, which have not been impressive. R&D is up and net income is still high, down over the last twelve months, but only a 100% owner would be happy at this price point. Intel booked around $140 billion in earnings over the last decade, but only $35 billion made it to retained earnings. That translated to 216% gain by April 2021. Fast forward to today and the stock is down 60% from those highs. Could it get back to those levels? Sure. In fact, it’s likely the company will, I just don’t like it.
