The price of gold could hit a record high of $2,000 an ounce within the next two years as US economic growth fades and the Federal Reserve cuts interest rates, according to analysts at Citigroup. The New York-based bank said in a Monday research note that the precious metal could top levels last seen eight years ago, when gold surged to $1,900 an ounce, as uncertainty over the 2020 presidential election combines with a sputtering domestic economy. The gold price has risen by 17 per cent this year to trade at $1,495 a troy ounce, putting the precious metal on track for its best year since 2010.
This week, Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) stock fell after releasing its second-quarter earnings report. The company reported adjusted earnings of 8 cents per share on $1.53 billion in revenue.AMD met expectations when it came to revenue and earnings, but lowered its guidance for the remainder of the year. The AMD share price fell 8% on Wednesday but AMD stock is still up 68% from a year earlier. Does this recent stock drop offer a good opportunity to invest in the company? Here are three things you should know about AMD stock before you decide.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Sales Are Down From a Year EarlierAdvanced Micro Device's revenue during the second quarter was a bit of a mixed bag. Revenue from computing and graphics reached $940 million which missed estimates of $983 million. Semi-custom revenue was $591 million which topped expectations of $544 million.And the company's total revenue reached $1.53 billion, beating estimates of $1.52 billion. This up 20% from the previous quarter but down 13% from a year earlier. CEO Lisa Su said that overall, she's pleased with the company's financial performance. AMD Stock Is a Top-Performing Semiconductor StockAMD is one of the best-performing stocks on the PHLX Semiconductor Stock Exchange. And one reason for this is that AMD invests a lot of time and money in developing new and exciting products. This year, the company released its second-generation Ryzen CPU, which is supposed to be the most powerful desktop processor in the world. The company launched its newest Radeon graphics cards on July 7. However, AMD does face strong competition in the marketplace. AMD and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) have a long-term rivalry to see which company can take the graphics card market share. Unfortunately, AMD often falls short to Nvidia. Nvidia has largely dominated AMD in the GPU market and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) tends to be more well-known when it comes to the microchip industry. Analysts Remain Optimistic About AMD StockThe earnings report was mostly in line with what analysts were anticipating and if the company hadn't lowered its guidance, it may be a different story. But AMD did lower its expected sales growth to a single-digit percentage. Analysts were looking for signs that AMD is rebounding and for positive news about the company's growth going forward. In spite of the tempered outlook, many analysts remain positive when it comes to AMD stock. 33 analysts are currently covering AMD stock and 18 raised their price targets even after the earnings report came out. Investor ratings did seem to be more mixed. 12 analysts gave the stock a buy or overweight rating, 17 had hold ratings, and four gave AMD stock a sell rating. The company will likely continue to experience a slight fallout from the earnings report but this shouldn't last long. Thanks to strong company fundamentals and many positive tailwinds, AMD will most likely remain a long-term growth stock. As of this writing, Jamie Johnson did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) stock is up more than 600% in the past three years. That type of move is typically exactly the kind of unbridled bullish investor enthusiasm that sends a value investors running for the hills. But while AMD stock certainly has an extremely high valuation, there's a clear fundamental justification for the rally.Source: AMD AMD Technology Finally SuperiorFor years, AMD chips were considered inferior to similar technology from competitors such as Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA) and Intel (NASDAQ: INTC). However, in the past several years, the stars have aligned perfectly for AMD. * 7 Dark Horse Stocks Winning the Race in 2019 AMD launched its Ryzen PC processor portfolio back in 2017 on the 14 nm node and updated it to the 12 nm node in 2018. Now, the company is expected to launch its 7 nm node products in 2019. At the same time, Intel's 10 nm node products have been delayed by three years, allowing AMD to eclipse its much larger rival in process node technology.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAs a result, AMD's share of the notebook and desktop CPU markets has jumped from 8% and 12% a year ago to 13% and 17% in the first quarter of 2019. That share should continue to rise as long as Intel struggles to catch up.At the same time, AMD is making meaningful strides in the server processor market as well. Intel has historically had a near monopoly on this market. Advanced Micro Devices stock investors shouldn't expect AMD to overthrow Intel anytime soon, but the trends are certainly headed in a positive direction.AMD's server processor share jumped from 1% unit share in Q1 2018 to 2.9% unit share in Q1 2019, according to Mercury Research. AMD has said it also has 5% market share of the dual-processor market. Partners Are Taking NoticeIt's not just investors that are taking note of the strides AMD is making in its technology. Last week, Samsung (OTC: SSNLF) announced a new multi-year partnership with AMD to develop custom mobile graphics technology. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Bank of America estimates it could add up to 10 cents per share in EPS for Advanced Micro Devices stock.Perhaps more important, a deal with a company the size of Samsung once again underscores the fact that AMD's technology is getting some major attention and respect.AMD's list of high-profile customers is impressive and growing. In addition to Samsung, that list now includes Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), Baidu (NYSE: BIDU), Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL), Sony (NYSE: SNE), Dell (NYSE: DELL) and HP (NYSE: HPQ)."The Samsung wins also showcases the leverage in AMD's trove of IP in computing and graphics," Bank of America analyst Wamsi Mohan said. "Other large markets of autos, IoT, and networking/5G are not a focus today but could be addressed over time with other partnerships." Window Is ClosingAny investor wondering why AMD stock price is up more than 600% can re-read this article. AMD is firing on all cylinders and has really brought its A-game with its latest technology. However, there is a major problem with buying shares at such elevated levels.AMD may have some impressive tech, but Intel has really dropped the ball with its innovation. Investors expecting Intel to roll over and let AMD eat its lunch aren't being realistic. AMD's window of opportunity to win over Intel's business is closing. It's only a matter of how long it will remain open.On any given day, David can beat Goliath. However, expecting it to happen over and over again is a bit of a stretch."While we believe AMD will enjoy share gains, we question the sustainability of these gains in the face of larger peers with more resources," Morningstar analyst Abhinav Davuluri said.AMD stock bulls can point to a company like Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) as a David that went up against the Goliath of traditional media and was somehow able to repeatedly beat them year-after-year with little to no resistance.However, this is typically not how the business world operates. Innovation can trump size and money for a little while. But the rule of thumb is that Goliath wins out eventually.There's no question AMD is real deal. But buyers looking to start a position at this elevated level should understand the risks. And anyone sitting on a 600% gain should at least consider taking some profits at this point.As of this writing, Wayne Duggan did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
