  • You people at AMD leading, suck! Why? Look at your presentation and details, your team are followers, and not leaders. In addition it sounds like a group of MBA that don't innovate, and don't like to take intelligent risks.
    Fire the executives, and SELL the company to others or Texas Instruments.
    Currency is a non-sense issue.

    Pathetic MBA graduates running a business in the chip sector is a failure.!

    AMD needs a refreshed executive team, private equity placement, and a hot shot CEO.


    AMD is depending on others to make money, i think monkeys can run it better.

    Sell the company, fire the executives, otherwise in late 2016, sales will be half or worse.

    Yes you are correct.
    Additionally the energy sector is stabilizing much faster than previous years.
    Its day traders today, no problem.
    Its been consistently up in the past 2 days.
    Today Oil held, and X fell a lot, for no reason other than fear.
    In the last 2 years, upside surprises have resulted in about a $3 pop, plus further gains in the following days.
    Next week April 20-25, X should break the high's and end in the $30s

    Get out ASAP.
    This will pull of an ALU any hour or day back down towards mid $30's.

    If you have shares, relax.
    If you can't hold to long, at least until late next week.
    The DOW didn't skyrocket, its been going up slowly, which is healthy.
    Steel demand is reversing course, last quarter was difficult, prices stabilized.
    Oil industry stable for this week.
    I will start cutting back at $31.50

    Look at my messages, i was good with picks in the past 2 months.

    Yes I agree, slowly but surely.
    There will be a nice rebound to low $30's in the coming days.
    However it can easily rise to $40's, as it was 2 quarter ago.

    Strategic Alternatives

    Buy out offers usually 25% above share trading prices, and given the revenues, and the recent take over offer at $24 a share, about 2 years ago, now that the market is improving, it would be very interesting to hold for the next quarter or two.
    Probably this will sink in to investors over the next few days, and the share price will move higher towards the low teens.
    The 10-15% move today is nothing considering where the shares were for the past year. Even without the "rumor" which is not a rumor, the shares could have climbed anyway this quarter.

    Most likely.
    There will be a positive valuation on shareholders, in most cases 50% value generated, would make shares return to mid teens or more.
    Still a good opportunity to buy here after the small pop today, small in the short term even.

    You may be correct, but the spin from Cramer and interviews will drive it up, probably around $14.50, the previous quarter was soft, but they will suggest guidance in line, and growth in auto, home, and other areas including Europe.

    In the ensuing weeks, usually the stock rises after earnings by about 25%.

  • Copper and Steel prices are forming a bottom in 2015, regardless of how the US pairs in other currencies, and so is OIL and energy sector. The good news is that most of this is all priced in, there is no global depression, the world is going through changes and these large solid manufacturers will be in a sweet spot later this year.
    Its only a matter of time before some idiot analysts opportunists put positive spin stories and pop up the stock prices in steel industry.
    The downside risk is mitigated, and Alcoa will demonstrate the way forward in this environment with positive motes from Europe and other places. I can see X building back up towards the mid $30's by the summer.
    The correlation to the US dollar and energy sector is breaking.

  • MSFT upgraded, other semi's are going up, and capex pent up demand in Europe and USA about to pop in my opinion, as homes sales, car sales, and economy recovering, including drop in US dollars since last week. MU target $35 for late spring.
