Yes amd is a growing company or at least the debt part is growing. Soon we move into 2014 and we have to look at amd's strengths and weaknesses . We will start with the weaknesses as the strengths can be covered in one or two words. 1. computer market has greatly changed , even Intel is affected and has to work hard to turn their business around. Small computers , tablets , phones its a hard fight against the established completion like QUALCOMM. AMD says they want to make custom industrial chips like for washing machines and garage door openers etc. among other items no doubt. When they do earn money 95% approximately is from computer chips but that's slow now and amd is losing share. Lots of smoke about the gaming console chips amd is selling. This past quarter the effect was nil as amd lost money without profits on property sold. They must have been shipped as the consoles are all out . What happened to the money ?
In Jan Rory will tell you how amd is doing again , I wouldn't expect much just the debt payments , rent payments and other expenses will eat up the meager console chip margins.
Stock is reacting in pennies even with a bubble market .
Those will for a good 2014 will probably sell out of amd in 2013 .
AMd's strengths ? great pr , and the stock is a wonderful short .
how many times does amd have to bring out an apu and not make money for you to get it ! This combination that cost 6 billion and is finishing amd doesn't sell well and when it does amd still loses money on the quarter. AMD apu 's can you play COD or other REAL GAMES no. Look Madeit not everyone spends their day playing Mario. It has nothing going for it . that's the sign of insanity same thing now over and over equals same result and still pushing it.
In the last 3 yrs or so. how many names have come and gone from amd ?
AMD is just deeper in debt , the end result.
You mention the consoles , maybe as being profitable . There is no track record . Shareholders are not aware of the margins except from the ceo they are very thin. The interest payments and the new rent payments for offices and warehousing will suck this lemon dry .
well its not really cash if its borrowed money . Do you think they would have sold the office campus , Singapore building and borrowed 500million if they actually had 1.2 billion in cash? you guys have to really grow up !
Yo YBF , my son picked up the Asus t100 last week. Its so good its unreal with full windows 8.1 so it does apps too. They are selling this for 400$ on amazon in fact maybe 380.00 now. What made the difference was as you pointed out , BAY TRAIL. 11 hours unplugged.
Of course he is right ! Just the attitude on this board , they don't like the way he thinks and they don't want to hear the truth. So they slander him with BS.
He gets the last laugh maybe he will attend the creditors meeting just for a kick.
Half a day gone and amd isn't going anywhere . console hype , anyone who can count knows console money is not going to prop up this pig. AMD debts are the only thing going higher and the risk to own it .
He compares bay trail and kabini
These chips remember are for smaller computers with smaller screens . The Bay Trail according to reports acts like an I3 intel chip . Its powerful , uses very little energy and yes it makes a difference its made by Intel.
The Kabini is faster in graphics but my point here is these smaller computers and tablets are never going to be photoshop worktables. Therefore intel's fast cpu is what is really important in the real world. Pricewise AMD if fablite which means someone else has to make the chips for them , another level of costs. Lets assume in the end the selling prices are similar to very close. We have to remember we are not talking about chips years ago that sell for hundreds of dollars.
For marketing purposes rather than saving " maybe .50 cents or so " not going with Intel I think is just a very bad business move.
Do you think amd is going down because its a plot or traders don't expect them to make money or bashers influenced the whole market against amd?
Maybe they won't need many as they can remove the chips from the blue light special dogs and recycle them.
hehehe Nico you are a real nut ! Tell us all you are joking . All these secret enemies according to you trying to take down amd . Love this stuff you have me tears here . A GOOD ONE !!
get the fantasy out of your minds , AMD is not going to bring in big money on the consoles.
Maybe crazy amdtards , but the market has judged amd and consoles and sold out.
Some of you like the sewer nut laugh at intel with billions and billions in cash and now new success with BAy Trail it was msft flubs like win 8 with apps and other garbage that held intels potential down.
Intel is now solidly in a lot of tablets with win 8.1.
yes intc doesn't want to predict the future and get sued if it doesn't come out that way.
I didn't say it wasn't going to sell well. I just said its smarter not to be among the first to buy.
Wait until the 2nd batch at least so you can buy a working machine.

acting like a baby and having to be one of the first to get something rushed out , well you deserve the problems.
