Rice Hall James & Associates (RHJ) currently offers five core investment strategies: Mid Cap Equity; Small Cap Equity; Micro Cap Equity; Small Cap Opportunities (formerly Small Cap Ultra Growth Equity); and Micro Cap Opportunities (formerly Micro Cap Ultra Growth Equity).For their Mid Cap Equity, Small Cap Equity and Micro Cap Equity strategies, RHJ uses a company-specific approach that focuses on identifying stocks of growth companies that are selling at a discount to those companies’ projected earnings growth rates (GARP). The firm primarily invests in companies with price/earnings ratios that are lower than those companies’ three- to five- year projected earnings growth rates,RHJ's Small Cap Opportunities and Micro Cap Opportunities strategies seek to take advantage of the long-term appreciation potential of smaller companies by performing disciplined fundamental research combined with the patience of longer-term holding periods. They seek to achieve above average risk-adjusted performance by selecting companies with higher estimated earnings growth rates, higher returns on invested capital, and better sustainability characteristics than that of each strategy’s benchmark.

Intel Corporation is an American multinational semiconductor chip maker corporation headquartered in Santa Clara, California. Intel is the world's largest and highest valued semiconductor chip maker, based on revenue. It is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors, the processors found in most personal computers. Intel Corporation, founded on July 18, 1968, is a portmanteau of Integrated Electronics (the fact that "intel" is the term for intelligence information was also quite suitable). Intel also makes motherboard chipsets, network interface controllers and integrated circuits, flash memory, graphic chips, embedded processors and other devices related to communications and computing. Founded by semiconductor pioneers Robert Noyce and Gordon Moore and widely associated with the executive leadership and vision of Andrew Grove, Intel combines advanced chip design capability with a leading-edge manufacturing capability. Though Intel was originally known primarily to engineers and technologists, its "Intel Inside" advertising campaign of the 1990s made it and its Pentium processor household names.
