In the following video, Motley Fool tech and telecom analyst Andrew Tonner looks at two of the biggest players in the semiconductor space: Intel and Qualcomm . But while they both might be major names in this industry, the two companies have radically different investing theses. Intel is definitely the value play, an institution in this industry, trading very cheaply at the moment because of major headwinds with the PC market slowing down, while Qualcomm is the growth play, as one of the dominant players in the mobile chip space. Andrew tells us which move he would make and why.

When it comes to dominating markets, it doesn't get much better than Intel's position in the PC microprocessor arena. However, that market is maturing, and Intel finds itself in a precarious situation longer term if it doesn't find new avenues for growth. In this premium research report on Intel, our analyst runs through all of the key topics investors should understand about the chip giant. Better yet, you'll continue to receive updates for an entire year. Click here now to learn more.
