AMD Could Surge Another 41% Thanks to These New Chips Shares of semiconductor firm Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) have surged nearly 15% year-to-date, but analysts at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch contend there is more room to run.
The firm reiterated its "Buy" rating on AMD's stock, arguing that the company's new Ryzen processors launched in March are selling better compared to rival chips from Intel Corp. (INTC) . The firm also reiterated its $18 price target, representing a 41% increase from Monday's close.
Well DUH. I already proved it. These analysts come to the same conclusion weeks after I've proven it. Idiot sheeps and corrupt clowns rule the world. =============== "Shares of semiconductor firm Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) have surged nearly 15% year-to-date, but analysts at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch contend there is more room to run.

AMD Could Surge Another 41% Thanks to These New Chips
Bank of America/Merrill Lynch argues that AMD's Ryzen line of chips will make it a more attractive play when compared to its rivals.
AMD management is doing the right thing. With the limited resources they have, they are focusing on the right market. That is the market for x86 server CPU and server GPU. It would be nice to win the market segment in which the GTX 1080Ti dominates as well. But the TAM for that is nothing compared to the x86 server CPU, which AMD is trying to push with EPYC. The market share number for EPYC won't be available anytime soon but a look at ThreadRipper acceptance in the market should give us a good indication of how well EPYC will be perceived. ThreadRipper is actually an EPYC server moduke being packaged for a HEDT part.
Do the shorts understand that the ONLY way Chipzilla can win in the mobile market is to continue to bribe OEMs. AMD's APUs will win on EVERY important metric. Battery life, graphics, multi-threaded performance. And let's be honest, AMD and Intel are within 5% of each other in IPC, and further software optimizations will eventually favor AMD; as we have see in gaming benchmarks in the last few months. I can't wait to replace my all AMD Lenovo Y 700 this x-mas. I'll be able to game at 1080p on the iGPU and in VR on the dGPU. Every other of my use-cases Ryzen will be overkill, i.e. web-surfing, word-processing, spread-sheets. I actually feel sorry for those so blinded by fanboyism that they'll allow themselves to ripped off by, either, an over priced processor or stock. Not to mention AMD's HUGE production advantage over Intel.
Raven Ridge APU is already out and amoung us! Release in time for Christmas.
AMD Raven Ridge Based Ryzen 2500U APU With Vega GPU Spotted
AMD's upcoming Raven Ridge based Ryzen 5 2500U with Zen CPU cores and Vega graphics cores has been spotted.
AMD High Performance APU product is next! Talk it up AMD board! Post article and announcements. Raven Ridge here we come!
If you are a trader here looking for a quick gain and relying on these posters for your trading decision, greed can kill you. Most posters that work around the clock, short and long, are here with an agenda, to manipulate your thinking to their advantage. If you are an AMD long-term investors, ignore all the posts from the shorts trying to inject fear and read all the enthusiastic posts from longs-claimed-to-be with some level of skepticism. Don’t worry about the short-term swing! Do your due diligence, verify all the posts, be patient, look on the horizon, and you shall be rewarded handsomely. Here are the key take away from the financial side alone: • AMD will start printing money in Q3. No, it won’t be another cycles of up and down • Once this get rolling, any fear of bankruptcy and debt concern will permanently go away. The sentiment will change quickly • Once Raven Ridge APU is out in Q4 at the latest, there will be lot of venues from which AMD can make a profit. AMD will have presence in every single segment of the CPU and GPU market. There’s not a single business segment that Intel or NVidia can attack to bring AMD down to its knee like before. On the CPU side, what Zen brings is scalability across the spectrum. Intel has yet to find a solution on the horizon to combat this. If there is any weakness in AMD, it's the GPU side but that's to be determined. For the high-end high volume part, Vega RX Gaming is very competitive in price and performance. When it comes to general purpose open computing, there is no doubt Vega does very well. Part of the reason why Apple has no problem adopting Vega to run their GPU-accelerated image processing application. So yes Vega is no match for GTX 1080Ti. What's the volume for this part? What's the TAM? How much is AMD losing out? Probably not that significant of a market considering that NVDA overall revenue from gaming last quarter was only $1.2B and the 1080Ti makes up only a small portion of it. • If and when Abu Mubadala decides to exercise the 75M shares of warrant, that will be $500M of cash infusion for AMD. AMD can then use this proceed to pay off some of the debt, which currently is sitting at $1.4xB. This will lower the quarterly interest expense and make AMD even more profitable • Assuming that AMD will be making a conservative profit of $125M/qtr moving forward. I think they will make a lot more than this though as we move into 2018, EPYC with the highest gross margin among all the AMD products will get more penetration. Where will AMD debt be sitting a year from now? Is less than half a billion reasonable? I think so. When there are signs that AMD can eventually pay off the debt within 6-12 months, what kind of valuation does AMD deserve? One of the biggest concern on Wall Street right now is AMD debt and that’s what the biased analysts are using to suppress AMD. Not too long ago, AMD debt was sitting at $2.2xB. The management team has done a great job of reducing the debt so far with minimal profit coming in. You will have to believe that they can reduce it significantly and quickly once the profit starts rolling in
Keep in mind, the analysts only give you the short term view. They don't give you the view on the horizon, 6-12 months out. AMD has probably the best product line up in its entire history to get it out of its financial woe. AMD has shown with Zen that it's no longer a second rated product company.
So who will win? Is it a TA pull back or a fundamentals surge fueled by good old money making?
I think a little payback is in order. Who would like to join me bashing on the Nvidia board?
I strongly suspect that the day after Labor Day (9/5), which is only 3 weeks from today, is when we'll begin to see substantial increases in AMD's share price due basically to: (1) back-to-school for many school systems in this country, and (2) generally a healthier time for the stock markets overall. Also, of course, we know that we can expect stronger revenues for Q3 and Q4--profitability finally! I'm looking forward to a new 52-week high sometime that week (9/5-8) if not before. Please keep in mind that I'm not a "TA expert"---just my good feeling regarding AMD's bright future, especially after all the increased bashing of AMD by professionals and amateurs alike. KTF, fellow longs!
Dr. Lisa Su: "THE BEST IS YET TO COME!"
just some ta info and update to what i had posted last week:
the spy went up yesterday too high for it to get down this week to the 241s/ 240s (there's an unfilled gap in the 241s that looked like as of last week that it was going to get filled this week- that would also have been in line with the head and shoulders pattern developing on the daily chart for the spy- that pattern now may have been negated due to the big up move done yesterday). so, on the spy/ spx: it is doing an inverse head and shoulder on the 4 hour chart- that means it should go to 247.30s to 247.60s and then drop down to around 246.00 to 246.30s - between today and tomorrow! then up again from that point to 248s to complete the pattern and get to the neckline! that should all be done this week by friday! amd will act in accordance with what the spx does! also, amd is doing an inverse head and shoulder on its 4 hour chart too- price target is around 13.05 to 13.09. it should get to the price target today! by friday, it is likely that amd can get to 13.20s to 13.70s!
nvda is doing same pattern as amd and the spy! pattern gets completed in the 172s- price target of pattern is 192s - will it get there this week?? that it unknown- but the chart suggests it can get above 174s this week (will it though?? that is unknown for now too as that is a resistance price [174s] it must get through first before it can head higher)- and for now, that is all i know for nvda!
i'll give more updates later as i know more from the chart! i won't be online though on wednesday at all- so, nothing from me on wednesday!
Just Speculation! AMD APU is a match made in heaven for Apple. This is why AMD would not sell out to Intel for leasing out their High Performance GPU IP. If AMD would have sold out to Intel for GPU IP... Apple would've gone with Intel as they would now have the upper hand with a High Performance APU.... AMD now has both High Performance CPU and GPU to make a supper powerful energy efficient APU... remember this is all speculation! If Apple goes with the APU, AMD EPYC is literally a perfect match for Apple as the AMD Infinity Fabric ties it all together. If Google were to use AMD APU's for their Chromebooks, everyone would benefit from AMD Infinity Fabric for both laptop and cloud compute. For AMD... the APU is the factor which gives them the UPPER hand in all compute. Look forward to greater days ahead for AMD and all us investors.
If you look at the max time frame chart, AMD was north of $40/share in 1999 and in 2005. Would you agree from a product & positioning standpoint that they are stronger than in either of those periods? Can't wait.
I'm ready for the next leg up. GS, Barclays & Intc thru everything they had at us including the kitchen sink. We had a decent battle between $12 and $15. The next leg is $20-$25/share, and our bashers will be louder than ever! But we all know, long or short that this stock will be well into the $40's by this time next year!
Is there some kind of disconnect with all these people bashing AMD GPUs? Does it really matter who is better when everything is being sold out thanks to what looks like non stop demand from cryptominers? If anything all that matters is hashrates and clearly AMD beats the 1080ti. Right now that is all that matters.
Just remember, AMD new products sold out. AMD Mkt Cap 12 billion, nvda Mkt Cap 100 billion, intc Mkt Cap 170 billion with old products and does not have high performance GPU. Buy, buy, buy AMD.
