    Inventory Write-off

    After leaving a message and sending an email with no response by AMD's sterling IR dept in an attempt to find out if AMD had written off any inventory the past three years (amount and timeframe), I thought I would see if the MB could help. In reviewing ratios everything looks good but turns for '01 and '02 look too high giving way to the thought they wrote-off inventory. Thoughts???

    Also, does anyone know of any difference between the way AMD reports invenstments versus Intel.

    Thanks...

      Yha, AMD does it honestly, using GAAP( Genraly Accepted Accounting Principles).

      intel goes with Pro Forma, good will, etc.
      It's called "Cooking the books".

        Response: Can someone give me more detail and better accounting rationale??

    • intel investments are counted as part of operating income (loss)

      they seed startups and the money spent is counted as a capital expense... and shares sold then are counted as 100% income...

      used to work great for them and is an excellent way to manage income to show steady growth

      they cleaned up in q2 of 2000 on sale of MU stock... but i believe they got killed on virtually everything else since

      they just spent 500 million on mu again...
