Default AMD - Advanced Micro Devices

In full disclosure I own INTC in my roth IRA and AMD in my discretionary portfolio.

Anyway everyone knows what AMD does. I think branching off their manufacturing unit was a great move. They also started a new plant in New York (hiring people). Such a small market cap compared to INTC puts them at an obvious disadvantage. The quarter wasen't as good as I hoped. I added to my position this afternoon. I think it ultimately gets taken over by IBM, HPQ, MSFT or another big tech name. Good video cards and good chips. I think the worst is past AMD.

AMD upgraded to buy at Citigroup today. Great comments from fast money and Cramer tonight. Stock is poised to go higher.

summarizing cramer's comments...

"Cramer’s also a fan of AMD [AMD 4.00 0.30 (+8.11%) ], which just got an upgrade from Citigroup. The company has a giant cash position, good relationship with Hewlett-Packard, a good replacement cycle due to the back-to-school season and fact that it is trading at a 45% discount to the group. Cramer thinks AMD is a perfect speculation. "

I am definitely going to look into AMD. My problem is that I don't have much cash on hand (a bunch is tied up in C)

I like amd but they seem to have lagged behind Intel for a couple of years now.... if you look at their chart they have been declining in price since early '06. might be okay for a long term hold but amd has been slow to rise this year, although I see they are more than 60% off lows.

AMD rallied again higher today. Is poised to go higher tomorrow due to DELL's great after hours report.

I have AMD in my Roth IRA. AMD is building a large plant in Albany, NY area that will put 1400 people to work next year.

Looking to take 30% of my holding off this week. Currently up 60%. Will let the rest ride.

Waiting for it to cross $6 which it will probably tomorrow, tap myself on the back and take 30% off the table.
