3 Chip Stocks to Note Now: Intel’s Recon Investment, Broadcom Goes 5G, Qualcomm’s Royalty Woes

Intel Corp. (NASDAQ:INTC): Intel’s venture capital unit has made a “significant” investment in Recon Instruments, a developer of heads-up display (HUD) products, though the terms remain undisclosed. Recon goes after niche markets like cyclists and skiers, unlike Google’s Glass. An Intel spokesman also stated that, “We’re actively working on multiple opportunities across wearables.” In addition, concerns have emerged that Intel may be unable to launch its Web TV service by the company’s stated goal of the year’s end.
