Intel is a chip leader. All of the competitors are now dust, with AMD falling far behind. Intel makes the chips for Macs now.

Intel has low LT debt to assets (0.05) - A key stat I have been looking at this last year. Dividend yield currently 3.6%, pretty ok.

Negatives - chip making requires constant investment in technology and has a eroding moat. Highly costly business to maintain. Consumerism is knocked back a bit, and computers have reached the point where there is less need to continously buy new PCs. Could result in decreasing earnings next few years.
