yes, everyone likes big winner and always use that as an example how a desperate stocks can rise to a champion. the odds of that happening is always way less than the one that goes bankrupt at the end. why don't you do a research about big companies that go bankrupt and even though the price is low nobody is going to buy them such as Kodak, Circuit City, etc.
I think AMD fits more to BK. so, instead of waiting for a miracle, invest in a better companies and there are lots of them that are in better shape than AMD. LOL!
