Same reason it would be right to let it go from $1.75 to $1.76 without covering anything.
I have the cash. You have worthless gum wrappers.
I will never have to cover.
AMD is going out of business. It is billions under water and has no assets of any value. Its existing and planned products are junk. You are handing me premium prices for used gum wrappers. Keep reposting anything you want.
I will never have to cover.
That's not how shorting works, idiot.
No piece of hardware on a bench at a retail store can be trusted. They aren't actually secure and it's easy for them to be put into a nonworking state. You're an idiot if you think that a machine hanging just because you're opening and closing a couple of windows is proper verification of system quality issues.
Anecdotal evidence is a great way to get yourself into trouble. Go ahead. Buy all the AMD you want. I'll sell you your own shares over and over again. My job is made easier by fools like you.
Your speculation would be funny if it weren't so stupid.
Google around for projected Polaris card prices. $1700 is the typical quote.
So, if high prices are a problem, then AMD is burying itself with this cycle. It certainly isn't looking to deliver quantity. Yields must be a disaster on the second-gen Fury just like on the first.
"NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA) GTX 1080 Preorders Sold Out Within Minutes on Amazon
It goes without saying that NVIDIA Corporation’s (NASDAQ:NVDA) GeForce GTX 1080 is one of the hotly anticipated products of 2016. And why wouldn’t it be? The Pascal-based GPU blows away every single-GPU in the marker right now, including the $1000 GeForce GTX TITAN X. The performance of the GPU is unprecedented and customers are already lining up to pick one as soon as it’s available.
Even though the GPU is not scheduled to be available at retailers before May 27, Amazon opened up preorders for GTX 1080 briefly and what happened next surprises us not; ZOTAC’s and EVGA’s versions were the two to be available during the preorder phase and they sold out within minutes."
People will be plugging these into home systems in six days, with Amazon's same-day shipment.
Polaris? Not so much. The June 1 presser is an "update", not a "launch". It could be a launch, but AMD isn't saying that.
AMD is late and lame yet again.
They've already had all of their "good news" runup for this cycle. They will have to actually post a profitable quarter to pay this off, and then post projections of eternal profitability to sustain it.
Shorts are in no kind of difficulty at all. AMD is still guaranteed bankruptcy. Just a matter of time and financial regulations.
Out of 7 items you posted, 5 of them are BS and the other two are simply exaggerations. Stick to stocks where people aren't paying attention.
AMD is never the better option, even at a discount. The last ten years of AMD asset decimation should have told you that.
That's the headline over at engadget.
AMD pumpers will of course try to lie and tell you that GTX 1080 is not the king of graphics.
All they're telling you is that they will lie to you about anything.
AMD is starting to look like the perfect short. AMD isn't profitable, nor is it growing revenue. It's collapsing on itself, and its actions in rebadging old products tend to confirm this. At the same time, the image of AMD has become hyperinflated to such an extent, that even AMD feels the need to tone things down."
It's getting to the point that any AMD pumper should be tagged for charging with fraud when AMD finally does file a chapter.
How can AMD make any money if it's not selling any chips?
Fury was a disaster nine months ago. Yields are still junk. Memory issues abound, and it can't get out of its own way on DirectX 12.
AMD is done.
AMD has to increase its profits by $400 million per year to break even. Not its revenues, its PROFITS.
Revenues are still in decline, costs are not being controlled, and new products are not lining up to be competitive much less significantly superior to anyone else's.
Renting IP to other companies isn't going to do it, because every chip that their IP renter sells is a chip that AMD was going to sell, and AMD gets less per unit for rent than it would in margin if it made the part itself.
Debt is still a huge problem, and maturity of that debt is looming just a few quarters away.
AMD is a falling knife--check that, it's a whole box of falling knives, and AMD longs are standing under them, grinning, with a catcher's mitt...
Don't let the pumpers fool you. They have never admitted anything about AMD's condition. They claim every new product is going to save the company and every $100 million red quarter is the last.
AMD is a class-A trainwreck and pumpers think it's just going to lift itself back on the tracks.
Why would we? I can see someone who shorted a few weeks ago without a full grasp of the company's prospects giving up on a less-informed decision. But this company is only up on changes that mean nothing of significance to its continuing revenues and profits, and absolutely nothing to its debt structure.
Nobody ever has to cover. Especially not me.
Notebook ASPs and margins are smaller. Market share only means something when you're talking about selling the same product segment at the same margins. Making unit-sale gains by skewing product mix to your worst earners is called loss-leading, and does not give you the benefit that gaining market share implies. Oversupplying the market decreases your future prospects and prices as well. Lisa Su took a page out of Hector's book and dumped product to gain meaningless statistics while decreasing shareholder value.
AMD's response? Shuffle deck chairs. Claim "market share" gains. Soft-pedal the continued 8-digit loss.
Da wheels on da bus go round and round and crush AMD pumpers like a caterpillar migration.
