Even the greatest companies in the world can become value traps that can result in several lost decades for investors. Intel has delivered negative inflation-adjusted returns for 23 years.
That appears to be the case with Intel, whose 58% 2022 EPS crash has justified its recent price collapse.
Despite $168 billion in growth spending through 2025, analysts expect just 2.2% long-term growth from INTC and 6.9% long-term annual returns, barely better than a 60/40.
In contrast, these two companies are far superior high-yield dividend growth blue-chips.
One of these blue-chips is growing 3X faster than INTC and has an AA-rated balance sheet.
The other has delivered market-beating returns for 11 years, one of the few dividend blue-chips to beat the tech-dominated S&P 500. Analysts expect it to keep delivering market-crushing returns for decades to come, unlike Intel which has become a value trap.
