    Per the CFO at the analyst conference a couple of weeks ago, AMD has no revenue growth prospects until 2019.

    This is the end of the line fanboys. AMD is over. Fini. Kaput. Roadkill.

    Don't forget that Sun had less debt than AMD and $3 billion (not $900 million) in cash. The actual price Oracle paid out of pocket was $4.5 billion. Ironically what Taco the Clown (Hector) paid for lowly, money losing ATI.

    And I am equally sure that the same bunch of monkeys that brought us Bulldozer and Llano have about the same chance of ending x86 dominance as a single flea has of draining a blue whale dry. AMD obviously isn't working - at all. We all saw the numbers. No one wants any AMD product for any reason unless it's cheaper than AMD's cost to produce it. Despite the hype and pumping, the company is in dire straits, losing money, losing market share, losing margins, adding debt ($2.2 billion at last tally, up another $100 million in a single quarter).

    Viability is highly speculative at this stage. Soon AMD will be a sub-$1 stock, befitting its likely implosion.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    60% of AMD's revenue depend on the Intel x86 license. The terms of that license are contained in the 2009 FTC consent decree which is available for review on the DOJ website. Under the license, if AMD undergoes a change in control, Intel may elect to terminate the x86 license. Intel's only obligation is to discuss whether or not Intel will grant the new owner an x86 license, and if so, how much Intel will require the new owner to pay for that license.

    The possibility of being excluded from the x86 market all together, alone, is enough to kill any potential deal. But now LG is defending against AMD's patent infringement suit by claiming that several key graphics patents are invalid. LG is much better funded than AMD. If LG succeeds in knocking out a few ATI graphics patents, that could make AMD's graphics portfolio unsaleable too.

    It's getting worse and worse for AMD. The end is at long last nigh. It's days are numbered. Enjoy the demise of the crappiest company in the history of high tech.

    The Board has been trying to replace Read for almost two years. In the infamous "open mic" incident a many moons ago, at a conference dummy Rory read was caught with his mic on talking to an analysts seated next to him, complaining bitterly about being muzzled by the Board at speaking events.

    Just as it took ages to find even a "D" grade CEO candidate like Read, the Board had no luck attracting any qualified candidates to replace him. In desperation they settled on a complete nobody, Lisa Su. You wouldn't even hire Lisa to run a 12 person start-up, much less a public company. AMD's utter inability to attract anyone with big company C-level experience tells it all.

    The Board has given up. They expect Su to preside over the wind down of AMD. The coming quarters are going to be AMD's last. Enjoy the swansong. I know I will.

    Intel will be fully ramped for the holidays. AMD has no new products, neither CPU/APU or GPU, for the holidays. What poor business planning. Both NVDA and INTC will have almost a full year during which to beat AMD's market share to nearly irrelevant levels. Some one needs to be fired for this miscue.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell
