good day for AMD today $150+
almost three times intel :)

WHAT????????????? Holly ####! That happened far sooner than i had expected :eek:


Hate to break it to you but comparing share price between companies is meaningless.

The correct comparison is ‘market cap’ (the cost of all the shares added together). On that point AMD is starting to nip on the heels on Intel now, only about £30b in it.

Back in Feb 2020 I came into some inheritance and was reading all the positive things with AMD and also personal experience from using their Products and at this point the stock was growing nicely. I had never invested in any stock before. So I thought I would invest £1000 on AMD and see what happened not expecting it to gain much if anything maybe even loss money.

Well the last 20 months have been stunning. Bought in at $58 and now sitting at $151. If I cashed out now I would get £2320 so £1320 profit roughly.

Since then I have invested in other funds (SMT) but AMD is still my only single stock that I own!

Yeah, and if the Xilinx deal goes through right now their shares get added to AMD's, that's a market cap currently at $49.21 Billion.

If AMD's market cap is actually close to Intel's then wow that's quite the bubble aye.

Cause if you can have that market cap but nowhere near the revenue then its a bubble, must be crazy high P/E like Tesla

edit: Yep P/E of 46 LMAO, AMD way overvalued. Hopefully they can convert the goodwill into massive revenue otherwise that share price will eventually pop.

Tesla's P/E means that investors think Tesla will eventually become the biggest car manufacturer in the world and if it doesn't happen those shares are going to pop big time. Similar for AMD, its P/E means that it needs to become bigger than Intel to justify it

Revenue and size are not as relevant as you think.

What matters is what people think they will get in return for their investment, how much growth a company has, right now AMD are growing at breakneck speed while Intel are stagnant, in some aspects important to investors Intel are in decline.

There is no such thing as overvalued, look at Apple and Nvidia, Nvidia quite recently, not many years ago were no bigger than an AMD smaller than they are today, but Nvidia was going places, they had explosive levels of investment, much like AMD now, Apple was the same years before that.

If AMD's market cap overtakes Intel it will be because people are confident of AMD's destination, confident enough to put their money on it.

Not how things work. Intel and AMD are two very different propositions.

Yeah so many overvalued stocks around at the moment but it will likely continue whilst governments continue with printing money from central banks making cash less desirable.

where as Intel is so poor that they have asked the White House for financial help to build Fabs.

Under the last administration they were concerned the US was becoming to reliant on imports from abroad and wanted more fabrication plants built in the US combine that with local state incentives (lower taxes) the business case for Intel to invest in the US made sense. Besides it's not cheap to build these state of the art plants don't think for one second TSMC hasn't had financial help from the Taiwanese government over the years.

but I thought Intel was loaded with cash. Anyway it was Intel's choice to build Fabs all over the world - not just in the US.

They are loaded but why risk your own when a government wants to help out. It's all politics at the end of the day, for the US government it's a question of national security whereas for Intel it's all about good business.

They seem to be sticking at $155 for now, $150+ is thought to be the new normal for AMD.

For now, all it takes is one or two more big ticket item good news stories for AMD and they could find themselves overtaking Intel in value terms.

A lot of investors / traders are waiting for the Xilinx deal to complete. Lisa said by end of year - so any time now. Mkt Cap then, who knows. ;)
