The Company failed to maintain effective controls on financial reporting. Based on the Company's internal investigation of these matters, it was not capable of filing a Form 10-Q quarterly report for the period ending September 30, 2019. Based on these facts, the Company's public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Baxter, investors suffered damages.

    The problem with AMD’s data-center business

    If Advanced Micro Devices Inc. is indeed serious about being in the data-center business, the chip maker needs to start telling investors what is happening in that business. AMD'S stock has been on this roll over the past two years largely due to expectations that it would challenge dominant Intel Corp. (INTC) in the higher-margin server market. AMD said its fourth-quarter results were “partially offset” by the semi-custom business, which is mostly driven by custom chip designs for videogaming consoles, a business that is expected to pick up in the second half with a new generation of consoles from Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) and Sony Corp. (SNE) .
