It is incredible to me the power of the deep state how it plays both sides, and how it can use the media to bring down the president. It is truly an incredible thing I never thought possible. If Trump can survive until 2018 mid term elections he may have a chance to drain that swamp . Until then nothing positive will be said about him no matter what and he knows it. One thing hes a tireless fighter. You have to ask why the hell is he doing all this for? He said he doesnt need the money, he is not even getting paid for being president. He loves this country and hes taking a beating for it.Sad.
A reply to @Douglas. Your entire invalid argument since you started posting more actively here a month or two ago is that AMD has no roadmap and will not improve & release their products in the same fashion as Intel and Nvidia. Just plain wrong.
AMD is out of the woods with a roadmap and plans to release iterations & new generations including 7nm over the next several years. Your argument is getting old and you're fooling no one.
BofA, Goldman, Sued Over Stock Short Market Control
Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and four other investment banks are conspiring to control the more than $1 trillion market for lending stocks, according to a federal lawsuit.
The complaint by the Iowa Public Employees Retirement System and two other government pension plans claims the banks are blocking a shift to all-electronic system for matching lenders and borrowers of shares, so they can continue to profit from each transaction. In a short sale, traders sell borrowed stock, anticipating the price will drop so they can profit by buying back the shares at a lower price.
“Major investment banks are conspiring to preserve their profits at the expense of everyday investors,” plaintiffs’ attorney Michael Eisenkraft of Washington-based Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll said in a statement Thursday. The investors are seeking unspecified damages in the class-action antitrust case, which could be tripled under federal law.
Look - as a reborn company, all you can hope for is market acceptance. There are hundreds.of companies valued at billions who don't offer anything of value (snap).
AMDs products are effectively sold-out across the board, worldwide. NVidia doesnt have this problem, and never had even when they were making less than AMD.
Is this the sign of a company resorting to Intel bribery tactics to gain marketshare by force or is it organic?
Every signal out there shows AMD's rebirth is 100% natural.
People want AMD products, and are buying them as fast as AMD can get them made.
This isnt Tesla promising the world but delivering nothing, at a valuation greater than Ford and GM...
AMD has products on the market, sold out, and the more they make the more they sell. Every company on earth dreams of this "problem"
If anyone thinks AMD is a sign of a company about to go BK, you are an unconscionable moron who has no idea what running a business is, at its core: defining a market opportunity and delivering a product to fill a void left open for opportunity.
I'm going to post this, and no one who is long is going to listen, but I can't help ignorance. Four hour chart shows an Elliot's wave pattern. We are in the "B" and possible going into the "c" part of the retracement portion of the waves. A seems to have been completed and there is a strong support around 12.06 and 12.14 (we'll take the difference and call it 12.10). Once that is broken the "C" part of the retracement will have been confirmed. Fibbonacci grid shows that it is possible that we are in "C" now but it could be a false "C" and "B" could be recalculating. In other words the stock should drop to mid 10's if not bottom of the 10's based off of the price movement in wave "A". I agree with frost saying it is going to drop. Any good trader takes into account the different sides of the trades. Longs be careful and reasses your risk tolerance.
I predict the stock heading back to the upside for earnings. But I am no pro trader, I only see what is in front of me.
Now that is out on the table, let me have it!
Here is why I am long AMD. I own a small IT company, and we have used (and sold) exclusively AMD based products for the last 17 years, including Opteron based servers in our rack at Peak10. We find them to be always affordable, and consistently stable and performance oriented. With the outstanding short interest, of course AMD is volatile. Each time it starts a run, shorts cover driving it higher. Each time it falls off, shorts pile on swinging it lower, explaining the 3X beta. But the core group of shorts never cover, with typical days to cover exceeding 2 full days. This is not a "balance sheet" stock. This is a future stock. If AMD ends up with 50% marketshare in pc's, and 10% in servers, it's worth no less than $25/share. At some point, there will be a short covering spiral, which will be amazing validation for longs and all the bs we have endured. It will happen sooner, rather than later.
Believe me, I've seen this before, with AAPL and currently with AMD. The price movement will tire you out, and get you second guessing your long position. Then all of the sudden, the whole world knows and the price skyrockets, and for the many who left AMD only to chase the next hot stock, the ship has sailed.
Apple: cult like following; slowly took market share from a company in Blackberry that once dominated the market. Only to take it all away. AMD: cult like following, you know how this goes...
The news in the last 6 months has only solidified the reasons to own AMD, regardless of the stock price movement. The stock price and FUD does not affect my decision to hold a stock, the company does.
I've been holding the AMD bags for almost 18 months now(in at $1.8), yes, shorts I am a bag holder.
My amd pc is on the way. Vega 64 black and ryzen 7 1800x.
I hope that the thieves of Wall Street all get the book thrown at them and are forced to pay back the investors who have lost money because of illegal MANIPULATION! No single bank entity should have the power to affect the price of a stock so dramatically as GS did to AMD in May by having just one of their so-called analysts bash the company the way he did! Too much power corrupts! The system needs a good purging of the criminal elements within it! As I have been saying all along!
Most importantly, AMD seems to be of the view that current gaming performance metrics are not representative of gaming needs. AMD seems to be taking an Apple-esque path in focusing more on user experience than traditional gaming benchmarks. For example, AMD seems to be focused on increasing the minimum frame rate for gaming compared to the traditional benchmarks which measure the highest frame rate. AMD seems to be betting on an improved user experience with this approach. Limited testing by a game lab seems to support AMD’s contention. In the linked test, gamers rate AMD Vega higher than Nvidia 1080 TI even though the technical data suggest that the chip is more of a competitor to 1080. What this indicates is that, in gamers’ perception, Vega’s performance will likely be on par with or better than 1080 TI. (Seeking alpha)
NVDA said that Cryptocurrency is their main focus. Big Mistake!
Maybe GS is stopping the manipulation after getting sued. Seriously doubt it, been going on for years !
AMD is NOT taking their foot off the gas! RyZen, ThreadRipper, EPYC, Vega are NOT single shots. AMD is doing a rapid fire of innovation in a broad market fusillade targeting a huge $60B growing TAM!
Today at AMD design teams were taping out 7nm Zen2 CPU and 7nm Navi GPU, for release in 2018, that target "Greater Performance". Simultaneously, today, separate advanced design teams are working Zen3 CPU and Navi GPU targeting "Continuous Performance per Watt Gains"
AMD has institutionalized an assembly line of innovation. The New Products, partnerships, design wins, data center deals and OEM pickups will be continuous.
Read why Lisa Su said "The best is yet to come."
June 2017 Dr. Lisa Su, President & CEO at AMD “Our goal is to be very competitive in terms of our long-term roadmap. If you look at the foundry’s 7nm roadmap compared to some of the other technologies out there it’s actually really competitive. I think the gap between the foundry roadmap and the Intel roadmap has gotten a lot closer. Our goal is to be aggressive with 7nm technology. We will be doing tape outs later this year  and as we get closer to production will give more insights there [this year]. But the idea is to be more competitive throughout the portfolio.”
Harlan Surr, Semiconductor Analyst At J.P. Morgan "The one thing that Mark Papermaster said that I think was pretty compelling was he now has a system in place where by which at any given time that you’re launching a platform, and I think this is across you’re compute platforms as well as across your datacenter platforms, that you already have teams working on current plus one and current plus two. Is that correct?
Dr. Lisa Su, President & CEO at AMD That is correct. For our core IP, the core CPU and core graphics IP, you really need to do that to stay on the leading edge. And that is different, we really re-thought our entire R&D philosophy to be much more predictable and have multiple generations of improvement. And I think what gives us a lot of confidence or excitement is that now that we know what Zen looks like in hardware we know exactly what we want to improve on Zen 2 and Zen 3 and so the team has good a grounding of what to do next."
Some of the people posting here may be working for the accused in the shorting lawsuit! I hope they lose everything and more!
Many upgrades will be coming soon once the 3rd quarter financial results are announced! Until then we will continue to feel the headwinds caused by the greedy MMs that are allowed to manipulate without any intervention by the SEC ! The true value of AMD will be realized and the honest investors will be vindicated without the help of the SEC! The SEC must be investigated for collaborating with shady manipulators and heads must roll! The integrity of the stock market depends on that!
Pegged $12.50 for options today... will skyrocket next week!
m - why do you keep saying people here have no money and cant afford nvda yet you praise it for being such a great traders stock making money so easily?
Do you see the error in your thinking now?
36M volume, is that correct? Average volune is getting lower and lower. It's getting harder and harder to steal the shares. Not too many monkeys left hanging on the tree. Very good sign!
Ace is just so wrong. Ryzen is AMD's building block that server, desktop & mobile are based on. The concept, using infinity fabric is incredible efficient. By networking with samsung & Ibm, the global foundry process is superior, while Intc struggles with its "go it alone" approach. Intc is in serious trouble.
