    UPDATE 1-Intel buys software business from Canada's Pivot Technology in 5G push

    Intel Corp has agreed to purchase a software business from Toronto-based Pivot Technology Solutions Inc for $27 million, the U.S. chipmaker said on Tuesday. Intel said it would buy Smart Edge, a software that helps split up data and store it closer to users to make computing devices respond faster. The software is designed to run on Intel's chips, which are best known as the heart of most personal computers but which the company is aiming to sell into equipment for 5G, the next generation of wireless data networks that is being rolled out starting this year.

    AMD Stock Is Telling Two Different Stories

    Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) is expected to make their third-quarter earnings announcement on October 23, 2019. The chipmaker has been in the news for many reasons. Some of those reasons have been good and some not so good. And this good news, bad news dynamic shows up in the AMD stock price.Source: JHVEPhoto / Shutterstock.com The company's stock price is up for the year, but down significantly from its earlier highs. With conflicting information about its future direction, I expect investors to wait for the earnings announcement before making firm decisions on AMD stock. Advanced Micro Is Gaining Market Share with Several New DealsFirst, there is news that supports an increase in Advanced Micro Devices stock. In August, AMD announced that Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) would be using the company's 15-inch processor in one of the latest versions of its Surface laptops. This isn't a move that analysts expect to generate significant revenue for AMD immediately. However it is the first step that Microsoft has taken away from Intel (NASDAQ:INTC).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis followed on the heels of another major announcement from AMD in August. This is when the company announced that Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) would be using their second-generation EPYC chip in their data centers. This was another market share win over Intel. AMD Could Be a Victim of Apple's SuccessHowever, there are also reasons for investors to proceed with caution. One reason comes from Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL). Apple is experiencing better-than-expected sales of their new iPhones. Some analysts (and writers like me) thought customers would hold off because of the 5G lineup coming next year. However, Apple has told suppliers to boost production for all three phones by 10%. * 10 Super Boring Stocks to Buy With Super Safe Returns This is significant because, unlike Intel, AMD does not produce its own chips. However, AMD is enjoying a competitive edge over Intel by using 7-nanometer cores in its third-generation Ryzen (Zen 2) processor. Intel is not planning to release its own 7-nanometer chip until 2021.Because of this, PC makers have been turning to AMD for their business. However, if Apple needs 7-nanometer chips to accommodate demand for their new iPhone, then it's likely that AMD will experience delays that could give Intel time to catch up. Short Interest Is Predicting a Decline in the AMD Stock PriceFor the second time in two months, AMD stock is seeing a sharp increase in short interest. In fact, short interest for AMD is now at its highest point in 14 months. This would support the argument that institutional investors believe AMD shares are heading lower as the calendar year comes to an end.In the final two weeks of September, Bill Maurer, an analyst and contributor for Seeking Alpha, observed a rise in short interest of 26.5 million shares. This was the largest such jump for AMD stock since July 2015. Don't Expect Much Help from a Trade DealA potential piece of good news for AMD stock would come from a resolution of the U.S.-China trade war. Late last week, the U.S. and China were involved in high-level negotiations, which eventually led to a temporary truce.However, the consensus from the beginning is that a trade deal will provide a lift if the two superpowers can agree on the thorny issues surrounding intellectual property and Huawei. Trade restrictions have made U.S. chip suppliers unreliable for Chinese companies. A trade deal will only help that if these issues are part of a permanent deal, which seems unlikely. What Is the Market Expecting from AMD Stock?The market is projecting single-digit revenue growth for the year. While that may not sound impressive, you have to consider the context. AMD reported a significant decline in revenue during the first half of the year. Therefore, analysts are projecting Q4 revenue growth of 51% and 25% year-over-year revenue growth in 2020.Will AMD be able to live up to such elevated expectations? We'll start to find out when they release their Q3 earnings. Until then, I expect Advanced Micro Devices stock to stay in a fairly tight range.As of this writing, Chris Markoch did not have a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Prepare for an All-Out Graphics War With AMD Stock

    In the battle for domination in the graphics niche, the prominent players are Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), Micron (NASDAQ:MU) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA). Investors in AMD stock are betting on a company that's kept up with the competition through thick and thin, but there's no room for complacency in the tech war.Source: Sundry Photography / Shutterstock.com With new product releases to get excited about, Advanced Micro Devices stock holders can rest easy knowing that the company is still on the leading edge of the GPU (graphics processing unit) battlefront. But can AMD continue to push the boundaries and add value amid an uber-competitive tech landscape? Behold … AMD's Nvidia KillerThe GPU niche has grown considerably in recent years, with leading manufacturers leapfrogging past each other to make the fastest, most powerful devices on the market. To quote Columbia University's Michalis Polychronakis and co-researchers Giorgos Vasiliadis and Sotiris Ioannidis:InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Super Boring Stocks to Buy With Super Safe Returns "Driven to a large extent by the ever-growing video game industry, graphics processors have been constantly evolving, increasing both in computational power and in the range of supported operations and functionality."Not long ago, it seemed as if the graphics-card battle had been won decisively when AMD came out with the Navi 10 GPU, which is hosted inside the company's RX 5700 graphics card series. Sporting a streamlined graphics engine, multi-level cache, and all-new compute units, the redoubtable Navi 10 offered the most seamless streaming and most powerful encoding to date.No wonder they called it the "NVIDIA Killer": the Navi 10's release was an event that delighted techies while giving the AMD stock price its nice little bump, at least temporarily. Moreover, the Navi 10 is a mid-tier offering, meaning that it's competitive not only in terms of raw performance, but also when measured via a performance-versus-price ratio.As if that weren't enough to knock out the competition, AMD plans to release its next-generation GPUs, known as the Navi 21 and Navi 23, in mid-2020. As a higher-end product, the Navi 23 in particular will feature improved performance and most likely a higher price point, and is very likely a direct response to Nvidia's similar RTX 2080 Ti. Buy AMD Stock to Win the Graphics RaceAMD keeps coming up with the best graphics cards and processors on the market, and a stake in Advanced Micro Devices stock is very likely to benefit from the company's ambitious vision and nearly flawless execution of that vision. Serious desktop gamers are practically drooling at the newly-released Radeon RX 5500, which is touted on the company's website as AMD's most evolved high-performance desktop-gaming GPU:"Powered by the groundbreaking 7nm RDNA architecture with Radeon Image Sharpening and Radeon Anti-Lagtechnology, Radeon RX 5500 delivers extremely efficient, ultra-responsive, high-fidelity gaming… The Radeon RX 5500 GPU powers high fidelity gaming for immersive explosions, physics, and lighting effects, bringing realism to life."If you're a gamer, that's probably music to your ears; if you're an AMD stock investor, hopefully you can at least appreciate the verve and the vividness of that description of the RX 5500. You see, desktop computers might seem old-fashioned in the era of the smartphone, but serious gamers take their desktop computers seriously -- and Advanced Micro Devices takes its graphics technology seriously too, in case you couldn't tell by now. The Takeaway on Advanced Micro Devices StockWhatever the future of gaming technology might bring, Advanced Micro Devices is bound to remain on the cutting edge and AMD stock should, if I'm correct in my assessment, be a solid performer amid a constantly evolving -- and seemingly never-ending -- war of the GPUs.As of this writing, David Moadel did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Global PC Shipments Climb 1.1%; Lenovo Keeps Grip on Top Spot

    (Bloomberg) -- Worldwide shipments of personal computers increased 1.1% in the third quarter from a year earlier, fueled by companies upgrading to Microsoft Corp.’s latest Windows software.PC shipments climbed to 68 million units in the period that ended Sept. 30, researcher Gartner Inc. said Thursday in a report. Lenovo Group Ltd., the China-based owner of the ThinkPad lineup of professional devices, held almost 25% of the global market, widening its lead against U.S. rival HP Inc.Computer makers have been concerned by the U.S.-China trade war and Intel Corp.’s chip shortage, but Mikako Kitagawa, a Gartner analyst, said neither played a major role in the third-quarter shipments. “The Windows 10 refresh cycle continued to be the primary driver for growth across all regions,” she said in a statement.HP, the global No. 2, continues to be the largest PC vendor in the U.S. The company has sought customers seeking more expensive machines, such as gaming enthusiasts, to boost profit margins. Dell Technologies Inc., which focuses on selling corporate PCs, rounded out the global top three while Apple Inc. held the fourth spot with 7.5% of the worldwide market.To contact the reporter on this story: Nico Grant in San Francisco at ngrant20@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jillian Ward at jward56@bloomberg.net, Andrew Pollack, Molly SchuetzFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    5 Big Tech Stocks to Buy Now

    Another day, another hopeful tweet on trade from President Trump that is helping boost the stock market. This time, it is word that China's vice premier would be visiting the White House to help ink a deal. Previous reporting suggested that discussions had broken down over intellectual property rights.And in another indication that this is all becoming habitual now, in reaction to the optimistic news, investors are pouring into big-cap tech stocks to ride the wave of sentiment higher. * 10 Lithium Stocks to Buy Despite the Market's Irrationality With that in mind, here are five big-cap tech stocks that are rallying nicely and worth a look today:InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Tech Stocks to Buy: Netflix (NFLX)Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) shares are trying to come back from the dead, bouncing off of multi-week support near the $260-a-share level in what is likely to be a challenge of the 50-day moving average. NFLX stock has lost nearly a third from the double-top highs it set earlier this year as the streaming wars intensify with Disney (NYSE:DIS) and Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) getting in on the action. But a relief rally is in order now.The company will next report results on Oct. 16 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.05 per share on revenues of $5.3 billion. Intel (INTC)Shares of processor maker Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) are bouncing nicely off of their 50-day and 200-day moving averages, setting up a run at double-top resistance near the $53-a-share level. A breakout here would put INTC stock's late April highs in play, which would be worth a gain of roughly 15% from here. * 10 Winning Stocks to Buy and Stick With for the Long Haul The company will next report results on Oct. 24 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.24 per share on revenues of $18 billion. Nvidia (NVDA)Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) shares are rising nicely along its 50-day moving average, setting up a challenge of the April highs just under the $200-a-share level. NVDA stock has been on the comeback trail after the hype surrounding bitcoin and bitcoin mining -- which uses graphics processing units of the type NVDA specializes in -- died down in 2018. But with gaming and datacenter demand bouncing back according to Piper Jaffray analysts, shares should continue to push higher.The company will next report results on Nov. 14 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.24 per share on revenues of $2.9 billion. Facebook (FB)Speaking of cryptocurrencies, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) is trying to get in on that action with its Libra currency -- the future of which will depend on the success of CEO Mark Zuckerberg's testimony to Congress on the issue. As such, FB stock owners should mark their calendars for Oct. 23. * 10 Winning Stocks to Buy and Stick With for the Long Haul The company will next report results on Oct. 30 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of $1.91 per share on revenues of $17.3 billion.
