    Un corteggiamento che dura da mesi?

    Secondo una fonte ben informata, Microsoft potrebbe acquistare Advanced Micro Devices, o più semplicemente AMD. Sembrerebbe che la casa di Redmond abbia contattato l'azienda già da mesi, anche se non si conoscono i dettagli, ma l'acquisto potrebbe rivelarsi un'operazione non troppo gravosa, confrontando i capitali delle due compagnie.

    Gli analisti hanno calcolato che Microsoft spende circa 100 dollari per montare i chip AMD su ogni Xbox One, un eventuale acquisto si tradurrebbe in un risparmio annuale di oltre un miliardo di dollari, una cifra ottenuta moltiplicando il costo per il numero di console distribuite finora. Il risparmio potrebbe essere addirittura maggiore sviluppando appositi processori per smartphone e tablet. Ovviamente si tratta di un rumor, prendete quindi quanto sopra con le pinze.

    Qualcomm May Acquire AMD: This Could Trigger Significant Upside For Both Stocks

    Jun. 23, 2015 12:17 PM ET | About: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD), QCOM, Includes: INTC, NVDA
    Disclosure: I/we have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. (More...)

    AMD denies Reuters report.
    A spin-off or divestiture of the server business will generate substantial value for AMD shareholders.
    Steve Mollenkopf (CEO of Qualcomm) mentioned that he's interested in M&A particularly in the server space to gain competencies and scale.
    Therefore, Qualcomm may be mulling a buyout of AMD.
    Qualcomm can generate significant accretion from this type of deal, as it strategically positions Qualcomm to counter Intel across mobile, CPUs, graphics, and servers.
    Readers are beginning to question whether AMD's (NASDAQ:AMD) recent denial over the Reuters report means that a spin-off of the server segment is dead in the water. To be fair, Reuters is known to leak accurate news on a regular basis. That being the case, AMD's denial seems to center on whether they hired an outside consultant, and whether they've developed a series of steps to spin-off the server segment. Perhaps, they haven't been presented with an offer, or if they have, they said no. In either case, AMD's public stance on the "rumor" demonstrates an absence of fiduciary duty to shareholders. Maybe they should have just kept silent, because I'm almost certain institutional shareholders will want the divestiture, or a full-blown buyout of the entire company.

    In some cases companies will stonewall themselves away from what's in the best interest of shareholders by attempting to maintain their independence. Sometimes the board is right in rejecting offers. But in the case of AMD that's simply not the case. It should be looking for a strategic buyer right now. I think we can all agree that AMD's various strategies to pull ahead of Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) have not worked f

    Samsung Plans To Buy AMD To Compete With Intel [REPORT]

    If the reports are true, a deal between Samsung and AMD could give Intel and Qualcomm a run for their money
    Posted By: Aman JainPosted date: March 26, 2015 10:00:13 AM

    Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) is already struggling to make a mark in the mobile chip segment, and the latest reports could make the struggle much harder for the chip maker. Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) is reported to be planning to acquire Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) to compete against companies such as Qualcomm, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCOM) and Intel.

    How Samsung could exploit AMD’s potential
    According to South Korean media reports, Samsung is interested in AMD’s CPU and GPU properties and using AMD’s IP to ramp up its growth and stand against companies such as Intel and Qualcomm. If the story holds true, then there will be some great products coming from it. The Korean company could launch Radeon IP in its mobile offerings to boost its performance.

    The acquisition of AMD would not just bolster the position of Samsung in the patent battle but also help the company stand stronger in the face of competition considering the strong product pipeline of the chip maker. AMD has a slew of releases, such as its high-performance x86 Zen’CPU’s, 64bit ARM K12? Core and the upcoming Arctic Islands graphics architecture.

    Another area in which the company could use AMD technology is for enhancing its fabrication by shifting technology into smaller processes which could be better than what TSMC offers AMD at the moment.

    Better placed among rivals such as Intel, NVIDIA
    Samsung and Intel have crossed paths in the past, with Intel trying to expand into the mobile market by subsidizing Atom sales, thus forcing competitors to bring down their prices to stay competitive. Samsung’s acquisition of AMD’s CPU and GPU IP could earn Samsung a very strong position in the market and also in the courts.

    AMD definitely made a good move to go to NASDAQ from NYSE.
    NYSE changed a lot since 15+ years ago, but 2001-2003 NYSE was busy filling stop loss order on first 30minutes of open market. I still think NYSE and NASDAQ uses different algorithm.

    I got into AMD around NOV/DEC 2012 at around mid 2's. Sold it early Jan 2014.before the earnings. Traded some stock, and I came back in at around 3.80s.

    AMD is doing a good job recovering, but street sees this as OLD AMD. PC sales PC sales Pc sales. I do admit that this part is really frustrating for me, but I am holding on.

    LOL this is why you are telling people to short this at 3.50ish and disappear when this hits 4.25 or higher?

  • bunkerbusterr bunkerbusterr Aug 6, 2014 8:03 PM Flag

    Yes, this stock is heavily played.
    AS A TRADE- Some may go LONG on dip, and SHORT on relative high. However, I am not dumb enough to short this even on relative high. I would rather short momentum such as TWTR or FB and take less risk.

    AS AN INVESTMENT- People are looking for "beat up" stock with "some" growth. They did it in the past. Look at Sprint, RiteAid, Wendy's, JCPenny, RIMM(now BBRY), and others. Except Wendy's, (perhaps BBRY) those stocks are #$%$ fundamental than AMD does. Wall St keep tying AMD with PC PC PC, and they only see CPU sales data. WHen the smart investor dumping some momentum stocks w/ High beta after freeriding dumb investors, they will come to heavily beat up stocks. Beat up stocks will rise before defensive or low betas.
