Intel is making 60% margins on the parts it puts into those boxes. AMD is making less than 30%.
It's funny hearing you tell Rory he's fired, with your mouth full of his tube steak.
Lisa Su was CTO at Freescale when it was taken private by Blackrock (disclosure: I made a fortune when that deal hit). After Blackrock restructured it, it went public agan, and langished. She moved to AMD, and Freescale started to thrive.
She's just like Rory, you know. The only thing she knows how to sell is herself.
Good night, AMD longs. Sleep unsoundly. You're in incapable hands.
1.3 billion people, who've seen all these games they can't play for decades; they finally get their hands on a console that lets them into the club, and they do what?
Yawn and go back to their phones.
China won't save AMD.
Worldcom, GM, Syntax-Brillian...
The list of companies that shed their shareholders and the debt they incurred is pretty long.
People who make posts like yours are frauds and bigots. You are not welcome on the internet. Leave.
I told you not to buy after the ER. I warned you. I did everything I could to convince you.
And then I drew new shares in crayon on every discarded scrap of paper I could find and you paid me cold, hard, negotiable cash for them.
I will never have to cover.
the autocorrect on my phone is execrable. "or" = "it",a nd "it's" = "its". carry on.
That would be more than the retail price of such cards. AMD has to make the cards, and that costs them money. Jim's $15 number is a very high estimate of the gross profit AMD could make on these cards. $10 is more likely. It's a drop in the bucket. AMD burns more than that in interest payments.
Foreigners-only facilities are a stupid idea. Want to reduce gambling addiction? Open real casinos and close the pachinko industry, which pretends not to be gambling at all. The first step is admitting you're actually doing a thing some people have a problem with.
mubadala has written off its equity in AMD. when or can get billions in free assets plus $1.5 billion in cash from IBM, it won't waste it's time looking at a $400 million stake in a rotting stump of a company like AMD.
AMD already had the Pro line. Most of the 4.1m is reruns. The rest is undercutting nVidia on margin. Apple gets what it wants, and AMD shareholders continue to overestimate the value of their fishwrap.
I don't see how HK riots directly affect Macao gaming except if kids are rioting they can't be on the hydrofoils to the casinos...
Severance isn't their only expense. They were already selling chips to Apple. This isn't all-new business. Of you think it's a clear increase in cashflow then Su has scored her first grift.
Most of those are $10 margins for AMD. This company stinks.
There is no rational way to get that small and still have the existing shares outstanding. They'll have to go down with the debt. See GM.
Rory explained it. Sort of. "'We made the decision, and as part of our fiduciary responsibility we had to share it because it is material,' Read said. 'That is the right thing to do. The part I am good at. I have done that part,' he said.
Read's take aways include getting AMD into new markets such as videogame consoles and putting the firm's financial house in order."
He's claiming he's an experienced transition leader. But this is his first transition gig. So he's BSing you and trying to save face.
And the evidence presented is proof he's a failure. He didn't get AMD into gaming, he just took Sony's bait when nVidia wouldn't make the chips for peanuts. And 7000 laid off employees and a continuing mountain of debt are proof he did nothing about the company's financial attitude.
Rory was fired. Without a transition and compensation plan. That's the opposite of a fiduciarily responsible act. They're trying to avoid getting sued by pretending wrong is right. And AMD longs, being such easy suckers, will let them get away with it.
