The lesson here to be learned is to never hold a stock though earnings, whether it is AMD, MSFT, or GOOG
What about FSLR? Went up 50% in one day after earnings.
that's nonsense of course - look at SWKS for example - ultimately it is all about expectations
when high hopes get disappointed the stock will be hit hard
but when low expectations are at least accomplished the stock might see a nice pop
very true. And what also factors in is the run-up prior to the earnings.
In AMD's case the stock was up 10-15% already and in case of SWKS it was flat last 5 days.
LOL It was obvious not to hold AMD through earnings. There was no way they could post results and guidance that would justify the current stock price. I posted the whys and hows for weeks. Sorry you missed it.
Nobody would have believed you in any case!
I didnt hold but bought 4.03 after drop and POS still cant rebound.
CONGRATS on catching a falling knife! Get out on any late bounce and buy back under $3
