Investors who own Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) though, or are at least thinking about adding a position in AMD stock, would be wise to add the word 'hyperscale' to their lexicon. Hyperscale is the practice of efficiently going from a few servers up to thousands.While not a new premise, it's about to become a monumentally important one to the cloud computing world. Advanced Micro Devices is positioned to not only usher in that era, but help shape it.It will have to, in fact, if it wants to take more market share in the burgeoning market.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher AMD Stock and HyperscalingSome tech-savvy people know of its enterprise-level wares, but by and large the majority of investors know and love AMD through their consumer-minded lens.That is, the company makes graphics cards and computer processors that video gamers love, and the cryptocurrency boom was wildly beneficial for AMD stock, even if it was a short-lived boon.There's a whole side of Advanced Micro Devices, however, that most investors at least somewhat look past, unsure of what exactly it is.Big mistake. It's this other side that will actually drive AMD stock higher or lower, in the long run.That other side of the company's business is data center solutions. Last quarter, this segment saw more than 8% revenue growth, reaching a total of $939 million, or roughly two-thirds of total sales. Though not all of this arm is necessarily data center-driven, a huge chunk of it is.The next evolution in the arena? The normalization of so-called hyperscale data centers. Advanced Micro Devices is moving into a good position.There's no hard-and-fast definition for 'hyperscale,' though most industry experts would describe it as the ability to quickly and easily scale-up the capacity of a data center, using low-cost components that make that scale-up economical.Where virtualization of hardware is possible, that's often the preferred course. Data center operators love its low cost and flexibility, which have become critical within the fast-moving and ever-changing arena.It's a sweet spot for Advanced Micro Devices' Epyc chip, a processor built from the ground up to effectively work in a hyperscale cloud computing environment even before the idea has fully gelled. Epyc Ideal for HyperscalingThe company's first Epyc microprocessor, a CPU designed with server networks and data systems in mind was released in mid-2017.The rival Xeon series from Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) was getting a bit long in the tooth at the time, and the marketplace was ready for an upgrade. The early editions of the Epyc CPU were reasonably well received.Its early success, however, was only a prelude to what was in store.That success would be tough to measure given the data so far. Near the end of last year is was estimated that AMD only controlled 2% of the server chip market. The rest of it remained hogged by Intel.That 2%, however, is up from 0% a year and a half earlier, and stolen from the king of data center hardware in a market where customers are slow to make purchasing decisions, and slow to switch providers.The company, to the delight of AMD stock owners, is talking about capturing 5% of that market in the foreseeable future.The upcoming launch of the 'Rome' version of its Epyc chip (tech companies assign code names to everything, though they're rarely a secret) may well get Advanced Micro Devices over that hump.It will fit and work in the same boards that used earlier versions of the processor, but will introduce the oft-discussed 7 nanometer leap and up to 64 cores to the mix.In plain English, it will arguably be the most powerful data center chip on the market, and at a very low-cost in terms of cost-per-capacity.It's also the chip that could finally convince technology companies hyperscaling is worth the switching cost and effort. As Patrick Moorhead, principal at Moor Insights & Strategy, recently explained of Rome:"What makes it so attractive is that it's not just AMD selling something for less. It's that a single socket server with all of the bandwidth and cores that are available will allow people to make smaller servers so you can have a higher density, and density is key particularly with the hyperscalers or even people in hosting."The soon-to-launch updated Epyc chip gives AMD an even more powerful weapon to wield in what will soon be an $80 billion market, up from $25 billion in 2017, now that corporate customers can see a clear cost-effective upside.Looking Ahead for AMD Stock There's still work to be done. Intel isn't sitting on its hands, and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) still dominates the GPU market where Advanced Micro Devices competes. AMD is also still conspicuously missing from the artificial intelligence arena, where Nvidia rules and Intel at least keeps Nvidia honest.Nevertheless, penetration of the data center market and the hyperscaling sliver of that market in particular is not only very possible for Advanced Micro Devices, it's very likely. GPUs, as well as AMD has carved out a small but loyal following, aren't going to be a key growth driver.Bottom line? Investors in AMD stock should take note of Epyc's growing role in the young hyperscaling market, even though it's unclear what that landscape will actually look like a year from now.It's a development that's still not been given due attention.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

U.S. stock futures are flat this morning but well off the overnight dips. In early morning trading, the futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average are up 0.38% and S&P 500 futures are higher by 0.41%. Nasdaq-100 futures have added 0.49%.In the options pits, call buyers were still the busier bunch on Thursday, but the markets had a tizzy brought by the weakest retail sales report since 2009. We also had news that things are not going well with the China tariff deal. Now we are in a stalemate while we await the next meeting or headline. Wall Street is waiting for confirmation before they eliminate the risks from those fronts. The action was more cautious than Wednesday. We saw the options balance shift slightly more bearish, with only 18.1 million calls and 16.3 million puts during the session.However, there is still overall caution among many skeptics of this rally. The CBOE single-session equity put/call volume ratio inched up to 0.6. This is now almost at the 10-day moving average of 0.61.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAlthough options activity was cautious on Thursday, there were a few standouts in options trading. Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY), Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ:ATVI) and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) had unusual levels of options activity or an unusual mix. This typical is a precursor to sizable stock moves.Let's take a closer look: Bristol-Myers (BMY)BMY stock has seen better days. Last year started well for it, but after topping out in the middle of February, it went into a 35% correction from top to bottom. 2019 started even worse when the stock fell to a new low of $44.30 on Jan. 3 when they announced the Celgene (NASDAQ:CELG) buyout. * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher Since then, Bristol Meyers stock has rallied and now showing some appetite to continue even further. Options traders on Thursday traded 214% of its daily average. They were still split almost evenly between calls and puts but it does show their interest in it.This is an indication that there should be a move -- most likely the continuation of the current trend. Buying calls is a cheap way to bet on the upside. Conversely, buying puts is a cheap way to buy temporary protection while remaining long the stock. Here they are both active, so investors are still engaged.If the bulls can breakout through $51.50 area then they would have the opportunity to retest $52.90. If that happens, it would offer yet another upside breakout line. So what is happening here is that investors are using options to ride out this mini rally so they can get to bigger rewards above.This is a quality, healthy company whose stock is temporarily broken … but the company is not. The market eventually will fix this so that the trend reflects the actual company prospects. Activision Blizzard (ATVI)The worst may be over for Activision stock, at least for now. This stock, along with many in the sector, have been under severe pressure from major shifts in their customer trends. But it seems like ATVI is adjusting and managing their businesses to right the ship.I recently wrote an article on how to trade the short-term ATVI. In it I noted the breakout potential from $44.30 to $45.60. This upside potential has almost filled as of yesterday but there still is potential upside even above it.The ATVI zone around the recent high of $46.58 per share will now serve as the next breakout potential to target $48 per share and fill the entire Feb. 5 gap. It will need the general market's help and it may take a few days to do it. Eventually, this creep higher will break the long-term descending trend line of lower highs and a much bigger breakout will ensue.This is a long way of saying that the Activision stock has probably bottomed and that it will have a chance at recovering all the way back to $56 per share. There are areas of resistance at several spots along the way, the most major of which are at $49.50, $51.6o and $$53 per share. Intel (INTC)Intel stock mounted a respectable 14% rally off the December lows. The day it went into the earnings event, INTC stock was on the verge of a secondary breakout line. Unfortunately, Wall Street did not like the earnings report headline and the stock sold off as much as 8% when it opened.But this was a fake-out bear trap because since then, the stock has risen 10%. Now it is once more at the verge of another chance at that breakout. The measured move from that would target $56 per share. There will be resistance at $53.20 and $54.70.Now that the gap is almost closed, I weigh the odds of it being the target of this ongoing rally against the idea that this is a mega breakout with $56 per share as the eventual target.I was a bit disappointed that they gave the interim CEO the job for good, especially after such a long search period. But since then, investors have accepted the decision so it's no longer an overhanging issue and my feeling don't matter to how I trade it.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) stock did not enjoy its usual post-earnings rally. The company issued a conservative forecast, citing weak Windows 10 sales and expectations for ongoing headwinds for the PC market as its two biggest upcoming headwinds.Despite the mixed outlook, Microsoft's profits continued to rise, largely due to its cloud business, its Office 365 product, and a few of its recent acquisitions. * Should You Buy, Sell, Or Hold These 7 Medical Cannabis Stocks? Second-Quarter ResultsMSFT reported second-quarter earnings of $1.10 per share. Its revenue rose 12% year-over-year to $32.5 billion. Two of its biggest businesses -Productivity and Business Processes and Intelligent Cloud -- did very well. The revenue of the Productivity and Business Processes unit grew 13% YoY to $10.1 billion. Within that unit, LinkedIn's revenue grew an impressive 30%. Intelligent Cloud's revenue increased 21% YoY to $9.4 billion. Azure's sales surged 76%, so Microsoft's cloud business is clearly performing very well.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Constraints on the PC Market And Windows 10 Hurt Microsoft StockIf the owners of Microsoft stock could complain about something, it would be the slow growth of the company's Windows 10 sales, which was caused by the anemic PC market. Microsoft's PC business shrunk last quarter due to the timing of the deliveries of chips to PC makers.Tight supplies from Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) and the launch of new chips by Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) probably negatively impacted the PC market.Still, more companies are buying Windows 10. Businesses demand more security and productivity software, and Windows 10 provides both. At CES, PC makers showcased an "always connected" Windows 10-powered PC. Immersive gaming was one of the scenarios it demonstrated. Strong Surface MomentumIn the hardware segment, Microsoft's Surface tablets continued to have positive momentum. The company expects sales of Surface Pro 6, Surface Book 2, and Surface Go to continue to be strong. Sales of Surface products grew 20% year-over-year in Q4. The Cloud Unit's Results Were Strong, As UsualOffice 365 subscriptions and Azure usually drive Microsoft's profits, but investors forget about its other cloud businesses. Power BI and Dynamics 365 continue to offer business customers valuable tools.Meanwhile, MSFT is widening its market through acquisitions. It closed its acquisition of GitHub, acquiring 31 million developer accounts in the process. The unit has over 100 million code repositories. Microsoft says that over half of Fortune 50 companies use GitHub Enterprise.MSFT updated GitHub and simplified its platform, making Microsoft's offerings easier to access from GitHub. Other AcquisitionsMSFT bolstered its gaming library for Xbox Live by acquiring two studios last quarter. Now the over 64 million gamers who use the platform have more reasons to renew their subscriptions. The Valuation of Microsoft StockThe 21 Wall Street analysts who cover Microsoft stock have an average price target of $123.26 on MSFT stock, representing upside of about 15%. The price-earnings ratios of MSFT stock, which are currently in the 22 - 25 range, are also compelling. Moreover, Microsoft stock became less volatile in 2018 because its main businesses performed in-line with expectations. The Bottom Line on Microsoft StockMicrosoft stock is the kind of investment that may appreciate over time while paying a modest 1.7% dividend yield. When PC makers resolve their supply issues, the sales of Windows 10 should rebound. But the company's bigger profit drivers -- acquisitions and the cloud -- are the reasons to buy and hold Microsoft stock over the long-term.As of this writing, the author did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

[Editor's note: This story was previously published in MONTH YEAR. It has since been updated and republished.]The search for software stocks to buy provides both opportunities and challenges. On the one hand, software develops and changes at a rapid pace, paving the way for ever-increasing chances to profit. However, rapid changes can make it a challenge to maintain market share. Moreover, between application, business, healthcare, internet and security software, there is a dizzying array of choices when it comes to software stocks.Existing software firms can stand out from the crowd by redefining themselves. As such, they can bring new technical abilities to the marketplace, reviving their companies and their respective stocks. With a little research, investors can find these software stocks before valuations move too high.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThese three software stocks should provide both the growth and the new technology needed to drive their stock prices higher for years to come. * Should You Buy, Sell, Or Hold These 7 Medical Cannabis Stocks? Source: Shutterstock Progress Software Corporation (PRGS)Progress Software (NASDAQ:PRGS) provides software-based security solutions via the cloud. The company divides itself into three sections. OpenEdge, its original product from the early 1980's, is a programming language focused on developing multi-language business applications. The company also offers cloud-based applications through its Data Connectivity and Integration division. Finally, Application Development and Deployment creates and deploys specialized apps for its clients.Despite its long history, the company may now be seeing its highest stock price growth ever. PRGS stock maintained a steady growth path following the 2008 financial crisis. And then, in 2017, the stock price almost doubled. After hitting a high of around $43 last fall, PRGS hit a low near $30 during the market downturn and has since rebounded back to the $37 per share level.The forward price-earnings ratio for the stock now stands at just 14.5, although the company's earnings per share are expected to be little changed this year.But as the cloud industry begins an inevitable consolidation, PRGS stock could become a buyout target. Its $1.66 billion market cap makes it a size any larger firm could easily absorb. With the importance of cloud-related security and low valuations, PRGS stock could stand out among software stocks to buy. Source: Larry D.

These simulations allow engineers and scientists to test ideas before bearing the high costs of manufacturing or building real-world models.The company has existed since 1976.

The company's EPS nearly tripled last year,and it's expected to jump another 24% this year. * Should You Buy, Sell, Or Hold These 7 Medical Cannabis Stocks? This growth has begun to appear in its stock. NATI stock traded under $30 per share less than three years ago. Today, it sells at about $45.50 per share, down from a record of high of $53.57 per share back in March 2018. As for its valuation, its forward P/E is now 32. While that might appear high, its five-year estimated PEG ratio is only 0.66. Also, despite its growth and long existence, NATI's market cap stands at about $6 billion. Although it may have taken decades to come into its own, NATI stock presents a compelling value proposition to customers and investors alike. Source: Shutterstock Symantec Corporation (SYMC)Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) has long served as the provider of Norton AntiVirus software. This stood out among software stocks to buy during the 90s tech boom as it became a leading security platform during the PC era. As of late, SMYC has seen slower growth due to slower PC sales.However, the company focuses on more than just PCs. Symantec also provides security for both network and cloud applications. Additionally, its acquisition of LifeLock offers protection in the financial realm as well.Analysts expect these new areas of focus to bolster the stock. SYMC stock saw net income growth fall by an average of 6.9% per year over the last five years, and its EPS is expected to drop by about the same amount this year. But in 2020, its EPS is expected to rebound 14%.SYMC stock also trades at a discount. After reaching as high as $34.20 per share last September, the stock trades at around $23 per share today.This could have also created a chance to buy SYMC at a lower price. Its current forward P/E stands at just over 13. Also, keep in mind that income growth will probably return to the double-digits starting next year.PC-focused companies such as Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) have found prosperity after the decline of their one-time core product. I believe the same thing is happening to Symantec. With the low P/E and the prospects for growth, now could be an opportune time to buy it.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

How Semiconductor Downturn Has Affected AMD's Profitability(Continued from Prior Part)AMD’s stock price momentum Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) stock has rallied 22% YTD after falling 48% from its 52-week high in the last three months of 2018. The
It was a gain, but not a convincing one. Yesterday's 0.3% advance from the S&P 500 may have gotten it above the pivotal 200-day moving average line, but a huge chunk of the intraday move was ultimately given back, and the volume behind the gain was mediocre at best.Still, baby steps in a bullish direction are still steps in the right direction.General Electric (NYSE:GE) did a great deal of the work, up 3.9% mostly in response to a $92 billion backlog for its power division. That's the arm that needs the most help and is best positioned for a turnaround.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAt the other end of the spectrum, Teva Pharmaceutical (NYSE:TEVA) and Ambev SA (NYSE:ABEV) were a key part of the reason stocks struggled to make the collective gain they did. Ambev fell 2.4% mostly because traders remain unsure how they feel about the stagnant company, while Teva shares plunged 7.8% after the company conceded 2019 will be a "trough." Investors were hoping the pivot had already been made.None of those names are especially great trading prospects headed into Thursday's session, however. Rather, stock charts of Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), Franklin Resources (NYSE:BEN) and Conagra Brands (NYSE:CAG) are shaping up as the best bets. Here's why, and what needs to happen next. Franklin Resources (BEN)With nothing more than a quick glance at Franklin Resources, it just looks like a volatile mess. And, that may be all it is. A closer look at the daily chart, however, reveals there may be more underway here than it seems on the surface. * 9 U.S. Stocks That Are Coming to Life Again The stock is at a key tipping point after Wednesday's action, and the backdrop is surprisingly healthy. Click to Enlarge • As of Wednesday's close, Franklin Resources is once again testing the white 200-day moving average again as resistance. The past couple of those tests have ended with a retreat, but it's telling that the buyers keep coming back.• It's counterintuitive, but the volume surges that accompanied the last two major plunges are actually beneficial. They serve as a flushout, or capitulation, that cleared the decks for a new, net-bullish paradigm.• Although the late-January low was the first higher low since mid-2017, the past two bullish efforts have been on tepid volume. More buyers will need to crawl out of the woodwork for a rally effort to be sustained. Conagra Brands (CAG)A little over a week ago, Conagra Brands was featured as a budding breakout candidate. In fact, it had just edged above a technical ceiling. The effort just needed to solidify a little bit more, to confirm it was for real.It's for real. CAG is now up 6.5% since that look, and has put that resistance line in the rearview mirror. There's another ceiling dead ahead, however, that needs to be cleared before the next bullish leg can take shape. Conagra may need to peel back before forging any higher though. Click to Enlarge • The next hurdle is the 50-day moving average line, plotted in purple on the daily stock chart. The buyers stepped back as that line came into view this week.• Although CAG may need to fall back and develop a running start to punch through that technical ceiling, the weekly chart makes clear the stock is more than oversold enough to fuel a bounce.• Should Conagra make good on its promise, the next most plausible target is around $28. That's where the first Fibonacci retracement line is, and where the gray 100-day moving average line is. Intel (INTC)Finally, Intel has been a name that's been dissected several times in recent weeks, as the stock has been working on rocking its way out of last year's pullback.So far it hasn't happened. But, this week's bullishness has pushed INTC to the brink of moving all the way out of its recent technical confines. One more good day will get Intel up and over the final hurdle, unleashing a few months' worth of pent-up buying action. Click to Enlarge • That final line in the sand is $50.80, plotted in yellow, where INTC has peaked several times since July.• The trend paradigm has already shifted from a streak of lower lows to higher lows, which has pushed Intel shares above the pivotal 200-day moving average line, plotted in white.• If a breakout move can take hold, the most plausible upside target is last June's peak around $57. That $7 span between the current price and that target is more or less the same-sized span from the low and high seen as Intel worked its way through a triangle shape beginning in late June. That's not coincidental. Stocks tend to move in familiar increments.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
