ServiceNow's (NOW) first-quarter 2018 results are likely to benefit from growing G2K customer base and rapid growth in non-ITSM markets.
Advanced Micro Devices is on a roll with chip releases, the likes of which it hasn’t achieved in more than a decade. On the back of solid and consistent execution, the Ryzen 2000-series of PC processors launches this week and addresses several critical consumer markets. Previously called the Pinnacle Ridge platform, this new family of processors is aimed at the DIY (do-it-yourself) and personal-computer (PC) gaming markets, in addition to computer manufacturers such as Dell and HP (HPQ).
Shares of Advanced Micro Devices Inc. announced Thursday the launch of its second-generation Ryzen desktop processors. AMD said the new processors, which are optimized for gaming, have the world's first ...
2017 was quite the year for Advanced Micro Devices who came from the throes of corporate peril to a sustainable entity to a product performance leader in certain products, workloads, and markets. When was the last time you saw this? AMD’s client computing group, in one year, announced Ryzen ThreadRipper, Ryzen (7, 5, 3), Ryzen Mobile for notebooks and Ryzen Pro for commercial markets. AMD made a much bigger impact in desktops than in notebook and gained a profitable 2.1% desktop market share (Mercury Research), but I am expecting notebook gains in the first half of 2018 with new models I see from HP Inc., Dell, and Lenovo. Intel does not like to see any benchmark bars or even price/performance bars higher than theirs, and let’s not forget that Qualcomm has entered the space, too.
In this series, we’ve learned that Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has strong growth prospects, but its poor financial health makes it a risky bet because it doesn’t have the capability to withstand a downturn without reporting losses. Hence, AMD has been a favorite of options traders and short-term investors looking to see quick capital gains from the stock’s volatility. Over the last year, AMD stock has underperformed the S&P 500 Index (SPY) and its peers.
In the previous article, we saw that Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) does not have sufficient cash and equity to meet its total debt obligations, which brings us to the question of whether it has the capability to service its $1.6 billion worth of debt. AMD’s EBIT was just 1.21x its net interest expense in 2017, showing that the company barely managed to pay the interest on its debt. On the other hand, rivals Intel (INTC) and NVIDIA (NVDA) have net interest coverage ratios of 28.7x and 52.6x, respectively.
In the previous article, we learned that Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is transferring most of its FCF (free cash flow)—that is, its operating cash flow after deducting capital expenditure—to its cash reserve. The company uses this cash reserve to invest in future growth opportunities and repay debt. Its cash flows are mostly negative, because of which it struggles to make ends meet.
Some industrial and semiconductor stocks could get a boost from their upcoming earnings reports as stock analysts step up their expectations, according to analysis from MKM Partners.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is preparing for another year of strong product launches with its second-generation Ryzen CPUs (central processing unit) in the pipeline. We’ve learned that AMD is a seasonal company, and as per its new accounting standards, its seasonally strong quarters will be the first and fourth quarters.
This movement made AMD expensive for value investors, who look at a company’s fundamentals, such as revenue and price. Hence, speculators and traders took the stage, and value investors backed off from taking a position in AMD. In 2016 and 2017, AMD aimed to gain market share from Intel (INTC) and NVIDIA (NVDA) by boosting its sales. Considering the company’s focus, a better way to value it is through the PS (price-to-sales) ratio, which shows how much investors are willing to pay for every dollar of a company’s sales.
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is on track to improve its profit margin by accelerating revenue growth through high-end products and the reduction of expenditure. In the previous article, we saw that the company expects to expand its gross margin to 36%. On the operational front, AMD reduced its non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) operating expenses as a percentage of its revenue from 37% in 1Q17 to 27.8% in 4Q17, bringing it within its long-term target range of 26%–30%. The company expects to maintain its operating expense ratio at 28% in 1Q18 and 2018.
When a stock’s short-term moving average is higher than its long-term moving average, it shows technical strength and indicates positive investor sentiments. The 200-day moving average shows a stock’s resistance when its price is below the 200-day moving average and its support when its price is above the 200-day moving average. If a stock falls below its 200-day moving average, it’s believed to be in a downtrend, and vice versa.
On its 2017 investor day, AMD stated that it would expand its non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) gross margin from 31% in 2016 to ~36% in 2018. It improved its gross margin to 34% in 2017 by increasing its ASP (average selling price) and reducing its production costs through the ramp-up of its 14 nm (nanometer) node. AMD’s gross margin expansion of three percentage points in one year was higher than NVIDIA’s (NVDA) an Intel’s (INTC) gross margin expansions of one percentage point and 0.6 percentage points, respectively.
In this series, we’ve learned that Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) stock has been moving against the current. While the iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF (SOXX) rose 28.7% in 2017 and has risen 1.2% YTD (year-to-date), AMD stock fell 27.6% in 2017 and has fallen 6.5% YTD. AMD has been underperforming despite improvements in its fundamentals.
