# How to make money in stocks. Lesson 33. General conclusion. Intel

In our previous lessons, we explored the key multiples that are used when picking or analyzing stocks. It stands to mention that this information may suffice for individual investors although there is always room to learn. However, this type of assessment is more of a rough analysis and generally lacks thoroughness.

As far as investment funds, banks, and investment companies are concerned, you will have to research them in a more in-depth way using financial modeling and possible algorithms. This is a much more expensive and time-consuming process.

Now let's try to analyze the multiples we have considered previously and which you will definitely come across on exchange websites. This time our focus is on Intel company.
