    AMD at 23 3/4 on DAX/Frankfurt

    I know everybody can check this as well as I, but
    in case you
    didn't think to...

    AMD at 20.3
    euro on the DAX = about 23 3/4.

    Is NYSE open
    likely to mirror DAX close in general? Just
    wondering
    if this is a dependable
    metric.

    Thanks,

    literarian

    • I think from now on everyone should postscript
      there messages with their current holdings of either
      intc, amd or nsm. THis way these watered down facts
      from either side could be compared to there holdings
      to give a validity of the statement and
      source.


      Ill go first.
      AMD 1500 shares @48 1/4 4/97

      1500 shares @21 15/16 3/98
      3000 shares @15 3/16
      7/98
      6000 shares @12 3/4 9/98

      TOTAL AMD
      HOLDINGS 12000 shares @AVG Basis Price of 18.94


      (SPLIT ADJUSTED PRICES)

    • The biggest, and most respected 'net privacy
      organization, EFF, has distanced itself from this latest round
      of mis-information.

      They realize that its not
      a big deal, unless you are trying to get yourself
      some publicity :)

    • don�t get taken away from german
      quotations,
      AMD is an OTC stock over here and volume is
      generally
      marginal compared to NYSE volume. however it might
      be a
      mood indicator. btw, "DAX" is the
      index of the 30
      biggest german stocks.

      • For someone who is very informed about how PC's
        and CPU's perform, the C400 indeed may be a clear cut
        choice as the more powerful processor of the two.
        However, the current entry level market generally has very
        few people with such knowledge. More likely the
        consumer is faced with these stickers:

        K6-2/400
        processor, 512 L2-cache,100 MHz bus, 8 GB HD, 64 MB
        RAM

        vs.

        C/400 prcoessor, 128 L2-cache, 66 MHz bus, 8 GB HD, 64
        MB RAM

        The prices of such systems are most
        likely very similar, with maybe the Celeron based system
        costing $50 more. Now ask your self as a comparison
        shopper, which would you buy if you didn't know that the
        C400 was actually faster than the K6-2/400.

        As
        to AMD ASP's in the first half of Q1, yes they are
        getting hammered, but there is a level of pain Intel will
        not stoop below. AMD is probably getting somewhere
        around $60 ASP's in the first half on PC based K6-2's.
        These low ASP's however will be often by the much
        higher margins AMD is getting on its portable product
        which accounts for roughly 20% of unit shipments
        (indeed this % may have increased dramatically in early
        Q1). So I think one can almost assume that AMD in the
        first half of the Q will be close to holding the line
        on ASP's. Once the mask change in early February
        sets in and once the K6-3 is on sale, AMD should have
        no problem beating the $89 ASP's of Q1, the question
        then just becomes how many chips can they sell in a
        quarter where chip sales are estimated to be around 25M
        as compared to nearly 30M in Q4.
