Intel Stock 2012 Trades (INTC)

Intel Stock has been in and out of my portfolio for about 8 years. Intel Stock has been on my website since March 2010. Intel Stock symbol is INTC. Intel Stock trades on the NASDAQ. Intel needs no introduction. It is the leader in the semiconductor industry with a market cap of $134.4 billion and revenue of 54.1 billion. Earnings at Intel are above the industry average and continue to grow. It has a profit margin of 23.16% and leads all other semiconductor companies.

Intel stock trades at a reasonable 11.3 times Price to Earnings but many analysts believe it is undervalued. I believe Intel stock is fairly valued going forward. It has a book value of $9.18 per share and cash flow of $2.36. Intel stock is an excellent candidate for put selling and if assigned shares, selling covered calls to be exercised out of assigned shares. Intel stock annual dividend is presently .84 cents per share.

To learn more select this Intel Stock link to view Intel’s investors relations pages. The investment strategy for Intel Stock is selling puts at what i believe is fair value and if assigned shares, collect the dividend while selling covered calls to be exercised out of the stock. It is important to understand that stocks rise and fall, no matter how great the company. By selling puts I am able to follow a stocks movements up and down and earn income and profit from those moves. When assigned shares I immediately look to unload my shares through covered calls. I am interested in trading this strategy long-term on Intel Stock. It will not concern me to do long-term Put Selling and long-term covered calls as this is a core holding.
