  • AMD Can Keep the Rally Alive, Says Top Analyst

    AMD Can Keep the Rally Alive, Says Top Analyst

    Amid so much uncertainty and chaos in 2020, there’s one thing you can depend on: Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) will continue charging ahead. It has been five years of incredible gains for the chipmaker, up by an amazing 2,284% since 2015. As the second half of 2020 nears, is it time for sentiment to swing negative on AMD shares?Not in the slightest, argues Northland analyst Gus Richard. Rather, the 5-star analyst expects “a strong 2H for AMD.”The analyst’s assumption is based on a belief that with so many possible macro headwinds on the horizon, the companies destined to perform well are those with a “robust product cycle,” and accordingly, AMD fits the bill.“In our view, AMD is well positioned for 2H:20 as new game consoles launch for the holiday season, and server market share gains accelerate as Milan ramps in Q4. Moreover, we believe these products are relatively immune if the macro weakens,” said Richard.It should be noted that the highly anticipated release of AMD’s third-generation EPYC processors, code-named Milan, is expected later this year. Based on AMD's 7nm Zen 3 architecture, the CPU will be able to take on practically any task in the data center market. Richard believes “Milan’s performance will demonstrate how far ahead AMD is in terms of performance in the server market.”As for that other catalyst, Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s Xbox Series X will be launching in time for the 2020 holidays, with both containing custom made AMD chips.Not only does Richard argue AMD will perform well through the uncertain 2020 macro landscape, but he also believes one specific headwind could actually fuel further sales.Richard explained, “We believe COVID-19 likely will amplify demand for new game consoles during the holidays. We are conservatively modeling console revenue to be a little over a $1 billion in CY20. We would expect consoles to be supply limited and demand to remain strong into Q1 driving upside to our model. In addition, as the holidays approach there will likely be a flood of publicity to stoke demand.”To this end, Richard has an Outperform rating on AMD in tandem with a $67.50 price target. Investors will be pocketing a 26% gain, should the analyst’s thesis play out over the next year. (To watch Richard’s track record, click here)The rest of the analyst fraternity is split into two main factions when considering the chipmaker’s prospects. However, the bulls have a slight edge. Based on 14 Buys, 10 Holds and 1 Sell, the consensus marks AMD as a Moderate Buy. At $56.43, the average price target implies upside potential of 5%.

  • Option Traders Make Big Bullish Bets On AMD, Texas Instruments

    Option Traders Make Big Bullish Bets On AMD, Texas Instruments

    Semiconductor stocks have held up relatively well in 2020 compared to the broader market. However, chip companies linked closely to graphics and gaming, such as Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) have performed much better than semi stocks that are heavily reliant on industrial and automotive end-markets, such as Texas Instruments Incorporated (NASDAQ: TXN)On Tuesday, option traders were making large bets on both stocks.The TradesOn Tuesday, Benzinga Pro subscribers received several option alerts related to unusually large trades of AMD and Texas Instrument options. Here are a handful of the largest: * At 10:10 a.m., a trader bought 3,378 Texas Instrument call options with a $120 strike price expiring on Sep. 18 near the ask price at $8.711. The trade represented a $2.94 million bullish bet. * At 10:25 a.m., a trader sold 1,500 AMD put options with a $52.50 strike price expiring in January 2022 at the bid price of $13.151. The trade represented a $1.97 million bullish bet. * At 10:58 a.m., a trader bought 1,981 AMD call options with a $53 strike price expiring on Friday at the ask price of 94 cents. The trade represented a $186,214 bullish bet. * At 101:15 a.m., a trader bought 437 AMD call options with a $40 strike price expiring on Jan. 15, 2021 near the ask price of $15.998. The trade represented a $699,112 bullish bet.Why It's Important Even traders who stick exclusively to stocks often monitor option market activity closely for unusually large trades. Given the relative complexity of the options market, large options traders are typically considered to be more sophisticated than the average stock trader.Many of these large options traders are wealthy individuals or institutions who may have unique information or theses related to the underlying stock.Unfortunately, stock traders often use the options market to hedge against their larger stock positions, and there's no surefire way to determine if an options trade is a standalone position or a hedge. In this case, given the relatively large sizes of the largest option trades, they could certainly represent institutional hedging.Green Light For Semi Stocks?The four large trades in AMD and Texas Instruments mentioned above were all bullish in nature, but the bull thesis for the two stocks may be completely different. Although they're both semiconductor stocks, AMD is heavily exposed to the PC gaming GPU market. Bank of America analyst Vivek Arya on Tuesday named AMD one of his top stock picks in what should be a huge year for GPU makers."While the current global health crisis could present a host of challenges, near-term demand (particularly for high-end gaming GPUs) has been boosted by global shelter-in-place orders," Arya said. In addition, he said new gaming console launches in the second half of the year will usher in a major upgrade cycle of gaming products.At the same time gaming is getting a boost from the COVID-19 shutdown, investors are getting increasingly optimistic the outlook for the industrial and automotive sectors isn't as bad as some had feared. Texas Instruments took a pounding earlier this year due to the fact that it generates about 57% of its total revenue from the industrial and automotive markets.Bullish sentiment among StockTwits messages mentioning AMD was at 81.1% on Tuesday, while bullish sentiment among messages mentioning Texas Instruments was at 74.9%.

Assuming the economy bounces back and a second wave of the COVID-19 outbreak doesn't force another shutdown at some point, there's a good chance both a momentum stock like AMD and a rebound play like Texas Instruments will be trading significantly higher by the time those September Texas Instruments calls expire.Do you agree with this take?

  • Why BofA Recommends Buying GPU Plays AMD and Nvidia

    Why BofA Recommends Buying GPU Plays AMD and Nvidia

    Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) and NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) are among the best performing tech stocks in the year-to-date period. Despite the runup, an analyst at BofA Securities recommends buying into these GPU plays.The AnalystVivek Arya has Buy ratings on both Nvidia and AMD shares, with price targets of $420 and $65, respectively.The ThesisArya said the $8 billion market in 2019 comprised of PC gaming, which accounted for 70% of the total market and declined 14% year-over-year, traditional PCs, accounting for roughly 12% of the market and showing 3% year-over-year growth, and gaming consoles, which made up the remaining 18% of the market and declined 40% year-over-year.In the first quarter of 2020, the overall market fell 17% sequentially, Ayra said but Nvidia gained 300 basis point of unit share to 75%, thanks to a strong mix-shift toward gaming GPUs, especially in notebooks.See Also: Here's How Long It Took Nvidia To Reach A 0B Market CapThe analyst noted Nvidia's high-end desktop line-up plunged 54% quarter-over-quarter, suggesting retailer/etailer high-end desktop inventory has been fully depleted to service the sudden surge in stay-at-home gamers."We think this bodes well for a Q2/Q3 channel refill and 2H20/21 product cycle driven growth recovery given still intact secular trends," Arya wrote in a Tuesday note.The analyst expects GPU industry sales to rebound by 16% year-over-year in 2020, partly due to the easier comparison. Specifically, PC gaming GPUs are likely to grow 11% year-over-year, and game consoles are expected to jump 43%, while low-end PCs are expected to remain flat.BofA expects multiple catalysts for PC gaming, including mix benefit from high-powered new game consoles, which are likely on par with Nvidia's RTX 2060/70 Super cards priced at $399/$499, and new product cycles from Nvidia and AMD.Latest Ratings for NVDA DateFirmActionFromTo May 2020Morgan StanleyMaintainsOverweight May 2020CascendMaintainsBuy May 2020Piper SandlerMaintainsOverweight View More Analyst Ratings for NVDA View the Latest Analyst Ratings See more from Benzinga * Linux Founder Switches Allegiance To AMD After 15 Years As Intel Customer * Here's How Long It Took Nvidia To Reach A 0B Market Cap(C) 2020 Benzinga does not provide investment advice.

  • Nvidia Is Showing Investors It’s More Than Fun and Games

    Nvidia Is Showing Investors It’s More Than Fun and Games

    In advance of its earnings report on May 21, Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) stock was generating significant interest from investors. The Covid-19 pandemic forced Americans to shelter in place. As a result, demand for video games -- and the devices that power them -- soared. And investors expected this trend would create surging demand for the company's graphic processing units (GPUs).Source: Hairem / Nvidia did not disappoint. The chip maker delivered results that should continue to power NVDA stock well into the second half of 2020 and beyond. For the second consecutive quarter, Nvidia's year-over-year growth was being powered by its artificial intelligence data-driven platform.This important development shows the company is seeing interest in its GPUs that cut across a broad spectrum of applications. In other words, a bet on Nvidia is no longer just about fun and games. It's about artificial intelligence and the applications that will be part of our connected future.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Nvidia Is a Three-Headed Monster of a CompanyNvidia has three core businesses. First, it manufactures chips for gaming consoles. But the company is also beginning to compete with Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) in data centers. And finally, the same chips that Nvidia is using to build data centers are powering the emerging autonomous vehicle segment. * 7 Cheap Stocks to Buy With Great Potential At the moment, the automotive segment of the business is on hold as automakers try to navigate cratering demand from the global pandemic. This means that, for now, research in the autonomous vehicle segment is stalled. There is some concern about how strong that demand will come back. However, Nvidia CFO Colette Kress believes that automakers will have no choice but to invest in the technology. "They have to. Or they'll be extinct," said Kress. Growth in Data Centers Is Catching Up on GamingRather than just slugging it out with Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) in the gaming space, Nvidia is making a direct push into the realm of data centers and as the company calls it "Smart Everything." In this new environment, Nvidia's signature GPUs are going to have new applications centering around 5G technology. These will include advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, and autonomous vehicles.One obstacle that Nvidia has been facing is the acceptance of its GPUs in data center solutions. Intel uses traditional central processing units (CPUs). This is still the more popular choice among business clients to the tune of $23 billion in revenue for Intel. And while both Nvidia and AMD are chipping away at Intel, they still only have a small fraction of the market.But according to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang, graphic chips are now being seen as a core component in server architecture. "The notion of accelerating deep learning and machine learning using our GPUs is now common sense," according to Huang. The executive went on to state that data centers are now expecting a significant part of their operations being accelerated with GPUs. Work-From-Home Is an Additional Catalyst for NVDA StockFor years, there was a theory that the only thing keeping more workers from working at home was that the investment in equipment was too great. But due to the Covid-19 pandemic, businesses had no choice but to make that investment.And it seems that workers are liking it. Already notable companies such as Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Twitter (NASDAQ:TWTR) have announced many of their employees can work from home indefinitely.But while those companies get the headlines, a recent Gartner survey predicts that work-from-home is not going away. The company surveyed 229 Human Resource leaders on April 2. Almost half of the organizations surveyed reported 81% or more of their employees are working remotely during the pandemic. And approximately 15% of employers said that between 61% and 80% are working remotely.And according to Brian Kropp, chief of research for the Gartner HR practice, 41% of employees are likely to work from home part time. Said Kropp, "Ultimately, the COVID-19 pandemic has many employees planning to work in a way that they hadn't previously considered."For Nvidia this provides another opportunity to provide employees with computers that have the power to handle the demands of working from home. But this is really just the cherry on top of a very appealing sundae. While NVDA stock sports a gaudy price-earnings (P/E) ratio compared to its industry peers, the current catalysts should be sufficient to drive the stock higher.Chris Markoch is a freelance financial copywriter who has been covering the market for over five years.
