Intel Corp. slumped after the world’s largest chipmaker said fourth-quarter net income fell 27 percent from the previous year, as PC sales continued to weaken.

Revenue fell 3 percent to $13.5 billion. A shift in consumer spending from PCs to smartphones and tablets continue to challenge chip firms.
