AMD's Stock is now up 52%


AMD's Stock is now up 52%, with a value of 3.99USD, the largest increase the company has ever seen received since it was first listed in 1979. 

This comes after the companies Q1 2016 quarterly report, where the company stated that they will be making 3 new semi-custom SoCs (which are likely to be used in future consoles), that they will be releasing a new generation of GPUs next quarter and that they now have a licencing deal with Chinese companies that is worth over $293 Million.  

The company has also increased their expectation for Q2 2016 earnings, with the company expecting to make gains in the discrete GPU market. 

  AMD's Stock is now up 52%  


AMD's Lisa Su has stated that the company expects to regain client compute and discrete graphics market share over the next quarter, stating that this will be due to their strong software and the high power efficiency of their new Polaris GPU Architecture.  

One thing to note is that this comes not long after Intel has announced major layoffs and plans to move their focus outside the traditional desktop PC market, leaving the door wide open for AMD to make some market share gains moving forward.

I've been thinking for a long time that AMD will have a comeback or at least move to profitability again, should have invested back then....

With Zen coming around the corner and Intel looking the other way ATM now might be a good time to invest in some stocks. Shame that would be a massive conflict of interest for me Quote

Stock only rose this much because over the next few years they are taking in $1.5billion from SoC designs and IP licensing. While a huge win, the stock is just rising from short term buyer's. It will fall back down. This huge rise just shows that there are a lot of people waiting and hoping AMD can pull it back with Polaris and Zen. It's a good sign for them. On the other hand it tells you of they fail at all, stock will essentially be worthless and they will have to sell some assets..Quote

Agreed. TBH it would still be quite profitable for those who bought low. Nice bump to sell with.

Its nice that they got this increase, however if they think this gives them the leeway to relax their efforts. Then they've got another thing coming...Quote
