Have Intel's shares ever split?
Intel's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 31 July 2000. So if you had owned 1 share the day before the split, the next day you would own 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Intel shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Intel shares which in turn could have impacted Intel's share price.

Is Intel under- or over-valued?
Valuing Intel stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Intel's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Intel's PEG ratio
Intel's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.1615. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Intel's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.
Intel's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$8.3 billion (£6.6 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Intel's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.
Intel share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Intel's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$24.4604 up to US$45.34. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Intel's is 0.95. This would suggest that Intel's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
|Revenue TTM||US$52.9 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||5.71%|
|Gross profit TTM||US$26.9 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||-0.72%|
|Return on equity TTM||-1.6%|
|Market capitalisation||US$178.5 billion|

Intel share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 123.33% of net profits
Recently Intel has paid out, on average, around 123.33% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.14% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Intel shareholders could enjoy a 1.14% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Intel's case, that would currently equate to about $0.98 per share.
Intel's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Intel's most recent dividend payout was on 1 December 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 6 November 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").
