The finances right now do not command a $5 share price. RIGHT NOW they command a sub $2 price. But stock prices reflect the future revenue stream. The fact is that most educated shorts are not expecting that stream to be as lucrative as most longs here do. Sure AMD is working its asz off to save itself by diligently attacking new markets like the game consoles business, the low end server market, the Tablet market, the gaming market etc. But I think the general consensus is that AMD does not have the cash reserves to stay competitive and all those markets looking ahead are low margin highly competitive markets that AD will find difficult to penetrate very deeply. That may or may not be true, but that's what shorts think and they are betting with large sums of money.
