Winning AMD Stock Forecast

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) went from a company that was once in fair amount of trouble, to a competitor against giants Nvidia and Intel. Shares have been seeing a continuous rise, reaching a 12-year high. The stock rose 200% this past month alone. AMD’s Ryzen microprocessors can take a fair amount of credit for this success. That along with quality leadership with Lisa Su as CEO. Ryzen outperforms competitor Intel’s comparable chips, and at a lower price. The same outperformance can be seen for EPYC against the likes of Intel’s Xeon, and notably so. Since AMD’s launch of EPYC processors last year, they have gradually gained share within the server market space. They are also set to launch next-generation 7 nanometer products soon, well ahead of their competitors which aren’t scheduled to drop until 2020. This gives AMD a window to take a hold of even more market share in the coming year. Their avoidance of certain security issues that have hit competitors in recent moths may have been yet another factor in their recent uprise. Ryzen and EPYC, which brought this company back to life, are getting a ramp, which should be a good sign to shareholders. The company is optimistic about a 20% share in the desktop market, up to 40% in 2019, driven by Ryzen chips. It is also notable that AMD’s market is growing, and this means though it may have healthy competitors, their presentation of solid product may be gaining them a more solidified position in the market. They supply rapidly growing markets like smartphones, data-centers, AI, AR/VR, self-driving, automation, etc. The total addressable market (TAM) took a massive jump from $18.5 billion to $22.5 billion, which only helps a company like AMD grow, as long as they keep delivering great product.

AMD saw an impressive second quarter, with a revenue of $1.76 billion, a 53% rise year-over-year. It also reported its highest quarterly net income in seven years. Earnings per Share (EPS) increased by 700% from the previous-year quarter, and 50% from Q1 2018.
