On CAPS, 94% of the 9,857 members who have rated Intel believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star MrOneHundred, succinctly summed up the Intel bull case for our community

Strong name brand, cheap (P/E of 9.97), and getting a foot in the tablet and mobile industry. Recent earnings slip were not much of a surprise in a PC dying market, but the Haswell chip set holds promise for this corporation to continue to thrive. (Even if it doesn't fair well, I'm confident that Intel's R&D will find something.) The company's administration seems to be performing excellently.

Of course, this short pitch doesn't even come close to telling the entire story for Intel. You're in luck, though. The Fool's brand new premium report on Intel tells all sides of the story for one of the most powerful technology companies in the world.
