How the FOMC Sent the Dow Sliding: The Home Depot, Inc. (HD), Intel Corporation (INTC)

ARM Holdings plc (ADR) (NASDAQ:ARMH), which has surged ahead in mobile-chip making recently — a space Intel hasn’t exactly dominated — is also leading the charge in developing semiconductors for products outside the traditional computing sphere. ARM’s embedded processing grew 25% in 2012, with the company making half its sales outside of mobile products and in everything from appliances to utility meters and more. While Intel is looking to push into this sphere, it’ll have tough competition ready to strike back as it advances.
