Shares of Buy rated Intel have been strong performers this year (up nearly 9% year-to-date), but they have lagged other chipmakers. Estimates have started going up lately, reflecting improved outlook for the company's data center business and prospects in the cloud space. Intel has long struggled in the mobile space, but its investments in IoT, security and memory could pay off this year. Intel’s non-volatile memory business is poised to take off while it remains the unquestioned leader in the microprocessor market. Additionally, Intel’s development program where major architecture and cost constraints are upgraded every alternate year is also encouraging. (You can read the full research report on Intel here>>)
