Intel announced last January it would invest significantly to build potentially the world’s largest chip-making complex in Ohio, looking to boost capacity as a global shortage of semiconductors affects everything from smartphones to automobiles. Intel says the 1,000-acre “mega-site” northeast of Columbus has room for as many as eight plants, known as “fabs.” The company estimates it would require a $100-billion investment to fully build and equip those plants.
Shareholders receive a 5.09% dividend. The Needham price target is $32, while the consensus target is $31.13. Intel stock closed on Tuesday at $28.73.
