Intel Corporation: 1997-2000
Describes Intel's diversification strategy initiated in 1998 by CEO Craig Barrett. Initially, Barrett's strategy worked well, as market value reached $510 billion in September 2000. Just three months later, however, investor pessimism over a slowing economy and recent problems at Intel resulted in market valuation plummeting by more than 55%.
