    In my opinion only, insiders are rewarding themselves handsomely with more bonuses and stock options. You could check it out under recent filings. Big question here. Bonuses are good. It is like an incentive. If the job is well done and you break all records and performance is at its peak then you deserve bonuses and rewards. If your performance sucks and you hit newer 52 week lows and you are losing close to half a billion dollars and you have balls enough to say that it is a lesson learned. The company is on the verge of bankruptcy. For last several quarters the company lost. Everybody forgets that this is not a private company. This is a public company that is on the stock market and you work for shareholder's best interest, not your interest CEO or management team. You are driving the company down to the ground and ripping off investors you are foolishly wasting money. If you are incompetent maybe you should step down and resign instead of rewarding yourself and ripping off investors. A very angry investor who is getting tired of all the BS.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    In my opinion only, in the short period of time the new CEO took charge the stock had ht a new 52 week low and headed lower. The CEO and management team continued to reward themselves handsomely with free options, stocks and bonuses. The CEO and management team are extremely overpaid with salary. Why does a CEO and management team require themselves to have free options when the stock is tumbling down to new lows and ripping off investors. The company continues to lose money every quarter and wasted over $410 million by acquiring a company in 2012 for $350 million and recently shut it down with an extra $75 million in expenses. That is foolishly wasted. The CEO has the balls to say it is a lesson learned. It is a lesson learned to the investors who invested in this company. The CEO and management team are getting filthy rich while investors are getting extremely poor. In my opinion only, I think the CEO is incompetent and should not be CEO. She might be a great engineer but she is not qualified or experienced. You could see her track record so far by her performance. The stock is hitting newer lows. There are several lawsuits going after AMD due to recent activities. They might have great technology but if you are not making a decent amount of profit from it and you are burning more cash rewarding CEO and management team you are killing the golden goose.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    In my opinion only, after reviewing the recent presentation I was very impressed. This all sounds great. I heard this song before. It was supposed to be a great year in 2014. 2014 had very disappointing quarters. Investors and analysts all got burnt. In fact, I lost a ton of money on this stock. The CEO wants to make changes they have to regain investor's trust. They have to produce results. Anybody can paint a pretty picture. The one that could deliver the masterpiece is the artist.
    In order to regain investor's confidence and trust, if I was the CEO, I would do several things. I would eliminate free bonuses and options. Everyone who works at AMD is paid extremely well. Giving out bonuses and free options is an insult to the investors and shareholders. If the investment went up and the shareholders were making good profit on their investment then I could see free options. However this company is on the verge of bankruptcy. Why are the CEO and its management team looting the company?
    I would issue stock options where you could buy stock in the company at 30% off. If they are willing to invest 70% of their money in the company that has such good faith and they could not sell their stock for at least a year after purchase. If I was the CEO I would put my money where my mouth is. I would heavily invest my own money into the company. They say if the ship goes down the captain will go down with the ship. That would regain trust in the company.
    I would file a lawsuit against Intel for their illegal tactics of selling products below cost or giving their products away for free so they could dominate the market. They have a smoking gun where the CEO bragged about losing 5 billion dollars on their CPU tablets and phones. Theye are doing the same thing with their servers. I will not tolerate this BS. By doing these few things the company will be on the right track and will regain investor's confidence. AMD needs superior leadership.

    In my opinion only, I have been following this company for several years and I am also an investor. The company does not put their investors first. For years, the CEO and the management team rewarded themselves handsomely with bonuses and options and dumped them on the market causing the value of the stock to tank with our investment. The mistakes that you made in the past were costly to the company and our investment. AMD acquired a company for $375 million. You shut the company down plus an additional $75 million for service pay and expenses. That is a really costly expense. You guys do not have a tendency to deliver on your promises. It was supposed to be a great 2014. The CEO stepped down two weeks before earnings causing the stock to tank. The CEO still received bonuses and options left with a golden parachute costing investors even more money. How come the stock is worth less now than it was two years ago? How come you can not deliver on your promises? Why would anybody in their right mind want to invest in a company even with great technology that can not deliver on their promises? Why are the CEO and management team making millions when they can not produce any results?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • In my opinion only, I found this stock a couple weeks ago by mistake AMDA. I actually typed in AMDA without realizing it I typed an A after the D and this stock came up. This stock is trading the first hour of trading three times higher than normal and is up 15%. After doing a lot of research I like this stock better than AMD. They have a better CEO and management team that do not rip off investors. They have a great product that could blow away the competition. The stock is trading very undervalued. Their financial status is more solid than AMD. Their technology is more advanced than anything out there at the present time. I sold all my shares of AMD to buy AMDA. I just do not believe in AMD's leadership and management team and I got tired of all the BS. Do some research on AMDA and you decide which one is a better opportunity.This thing has potential to explode 1000 times profit.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
