Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC): Closing price $20.85

Intel shares could now have arrived at the ‘right price,’ following a plunge of 30 percent compared to a 20 percent rise in the S&P 500 in 2012. The Motley Fool believes that, “at these prices, the giant chip manufacturer presents an excellent buyout opportunity for Mr. Buffett. Intel Corporation is bound to deliver fantastic returns to shareholders in the future, for the following reason: in 2009, Intel’s gross profit margin was around 55 percent. In 2012, it was just over 62 percent. Intel’s net profit margin has fluctuated between 12 percent and 26 percent over the last several years. So even at the low end of the range, it’s earning very thick net margins. Last year, net profit was toward the high end of its historical range, at 21 percent.”
