Just because Intel missed the boat on the mobile computing revolution doesn't mean its stock is unpopular among the nation's biggest and most sophisticated investors. Its top five shareholders control $25.3 billion worth of its outstanding common stock, equating to an ownership interest of 16.7%.

This is a meaningful stake, but it's roughly in line with other large publicly traded companies, such as Wal-Mart and Wells Fargo :

  • Wal-Mart's five biggest shareholders control 9.4% of the retailer's outstanding stock. That equates to $20.3 billion worth of Wal-Mart's shares.
  • Wells Fargo's five biggest stockholders own 24.2% of its stock. The total dollar value of their stakes translates into $67.5 billion worth of Wells Fargo's shares.

Thus, while Intel's leading shareholders control a larger stake in the chipmaker than their counterparts at Wal-Mart do, their combined holdings are still smaller than the top five holdings of Wells Fargo stock.
