AMD may reach 30% share in professional GPU market in 2014. Monica Chen, Taipei; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Monday 23 December 2013]. AMD may reach a 30% share in the professional graphics card market at the end of 2014, up from around 20% currently, because Apple has turned to adopt AMD's FirePro graphics cards for it new Mac Pro products, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.
The market share rise is also expected to boost AMD's profitability in the year, the sources noted.
The new Mac Pros have two workstation-level FirePro graphics cards.
As for server-related products, both AMD's FirePro S10000 and Sky series GPUs adopt PCI Express Gen3, while Nvidia's Tesla K20C is currently still using the PCIe Gen2. Meanwhile, AMD's GPUs adopt OpenCL, an open platform, while Nvidia uses its closed CUDA platform, the sources noted.
Price target AMD Dec 31 2013 $ 3.89, jan6 CES $ 4.09, Jan 19 2014 $ 4.27,Earning call Jan 22 2014 $ 4.75. Feb 18 2014 $ 5.25, Dec 31 2014 $ 10.75 ( 300% gainer for 2014 )
AMD will be strong over the next 3-4 years; will close 2014 at $ 10.75 share, will close 2015 at $20.00 /sh
By the way amd has 130 million share short with 500 million in the float. That's a lot of fuel if amd can deliver
Will Nuan be at the CES show Jan 7. AMD will have a investors call Jan 6 4pm to give insight what will be shown at CES can be replayed on the AMD website . Chart looks very strong.
Traders Have High Hopes for Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD)
Is Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. poised to retake the $4 level?
by Terri Stridsberg 12/30/2013 1:10 PM
Option Brief: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) is popular with option bulls today, as approximately 16,000 calls have switched hands since the opening bell. This is a 64% mark-up over the expected intraday norm, and more than triple the number of puts exchanged.
Snagging the lion's share of the attention is the weekly 1/10 4-strike call, where over 6,000 contracts have crossed the tape. The bulk of these calls traded at the ask price, implied volatility has ticked 5.1 percentage points higher, and today's volume exceeds current open interest levels -- all of which point to the initiation of new long positions.
In this scenario, the speculators are counting on AMD to power north of the $4 mark by the close on Jan. 10, when these weekly options expire. This denotes a rise of 3.6% from the stock's current price at $3.86, as well as territory not surmounted since Oct. 17 -- the day before an earnings-induced decline. Another possibility is that some of these out-of-the-money call buyers are looking to hedge their bearish bets, since short interest makes up 25% of the equity's available float.
However, the security has been in recovery mode lately, gaining 22.9% since touching a late-October low of $3.14. Meanwhile, the delta for the weekly call stands at 0.35, meaning the option has a more than 1-in-3 chance of being in the money at expiration. Should Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) remain below the strike price, the call buyers will forfeit the initial cash outlay.
