  • THAT is a ton of shares...almost 8x volume. Why? Intel pair trade? Options expiration on Friday? Traders and hedgies playing volatility before earnings? New short positions? Short covering? Lil' bit of all?

    Gonna be a bumpy few days...hang on!!

    "I've never heard of such a thing"

    You should do your research before buying a tech stock. This has been a known variable for the last year and was DIRECTLY responsible for the shortage and VERY high prices of AMD GPU's in the Nov - March time frame. This eased in April and completely resolved in May...as the switch to ASIC mining took place.

    A close back above the 50 SMA at $4.06 would be HUGE

    Down waaaaaaaay too much in 4 days. Chart is setup nicely for a bounce. While the $50M charge to refinance debt by redeeming the 2017 bonds at 8.125% with the new 2024 bonds at 7.0% will be negative for a quarter, the long term impact is positive for AMD.

    While there are legitimate concerns for AMD, specifically the slowdown in consumer PC sales and AIB partner GPUs and resultant inventory builds per Digitimes and other sources, the long term restructuring that AMD embarked upon years ago is SOLIDLY intact. As long as they see a little bounce from the corporate PC refresh that Intel alluded to earlier this month, and console sales remain strong, AMD should be fine. Any new announced wins in either semi-custom, embedded, or dense server would be HUGE for this quarter and help mitigate the negativity surrounding the $50 M debt restructuring cost.

    Just my 2 cents.

    BTW, after a 20/1 put/call ratio on Friday, the put/call ratio is solidly in the favor of the Calls today...specifically the OOM calls. Volume is still HEAVY in the common shares and options so the bets are being placed and the lines drawn here before earnings.

    The $3.50 and $4.00 July PUT volume went through the roof on Friday...almost 30,000 contracts of EACH were traded...WOW!! I REALLY want to jump back in on Monday but that is concerning for me.

    Any ideas on why the volume was so heavy?
