I have been a supporter of AMD for a very, very long time. The first AMD system I built was an 386/DX40. It was some years ago

That said, AMD has always been a poor performer and not something I would consider in a long term portfolio. But, I am looking at a chart now and thinking this may be an opportune time for a new short position, for a swing position of say a few weeks at most.



Anyone else agree with taking a short here?

IMHO Apple looked in buying them, when Steve Jobs was pissed that IBM didn't kept their promise of making a 3GHZ cpu, but then Intel showed Apple their roadmap and made them an offer they couldn't refuse. That could have been their momentum, but it didn't.

A bit over one week later, I still like this short but we need to see it break the support level around 7.25.

AMD engineer pleads guilty to stealing sensitive Intel chip documents - TechSpot News


Quoting 
Former Intel engineer and newly hired AMD employee, Biswamohan Pani, has plead guilty to five counts of fraud centered around the theft of sensitive Intel documents. The stolen information, valued at an approximate total of $1 billion, included chip-related design and manufacturing data. It is thought Pani intended to use the information for purposes of career advancement. However, AMD denied knowledge of Pani's wrongdoing and has cooperated fully with federal investigators.

Pani had worked at Intel's Hudson-based chip making plant located in Massachusetts before he submitted his resignation on May 29, 2008. Although his last day at Intel was June 11, Pani began his new job at AMD on Jun 2 while simultaneously retaining access to Intel's network. During this time, he had been downloading sensitive documents centered around Intel's manufacturing and chip designs.

Corporate espionage and intellectual property theft -- be it the theft of trade secrets, schematics or other proprietary information -- can be extremely lucrative in the right hands. Investigators have found no links between AMD and Pani however, in terms of willful espionage.

Intel quickly learned of the breach and stopped the engineer from pilfering documents before he could "use them to Intel's disadvantage". With Intel's help, federal investigators recovered approximately $200-$400 million worth of stolen information from Pani's home.

Pani, originally charged in 2008, may face up to 20 years in prison for each of the 5 counts of fraud brought against him. Sentencing is scheduled for August 8.

Cool. I have however been trying to find reasons to buy the stock. So far this is what I have came up with.

They are working with Oracle to make their cheap graphic units higher performers. (can't post links yet)

While they have restructured managers the current CEO has 23 years at IBM and John Gustafson is a "well known" tech leader from Intel.

Recently introduced a dual-core 2-60 chip for tablets.

10/1/12 WFC gives outperform rating.

I work at WalMart and up to now many of the laptops that we have had come in have AMD stickers on them. They are the cheaper ones and the greater in amount. I say up to now 11/4. because recently there hasn't really been anything coming in in terms of pc's.

Im still not totally convince in AMD but if they keep doing stuff I don't see why not.
