AMD's stocks are still continuing to climb, with AMD's stock prices now breaking the $5 barrier. This is over 2x the price that the stocks were trading for earlier in the year.

AMD's stocks started rising when the company released its Q1 2016 quarterly report, where the company stated that they will be making 3 new semi-custom SoCs (which are all likely to be used in future gaming consoles), that they will be releasing a new generation of GPUs next quarter and that they now have a licencing deal with Chinese companies that is worth over $293 Million.

The company has also increased their expectation for Q2 2016 earnings, with the company expecting to make gains in the discrete GPU market.

AMD's Lisa Su has stated that the company expects to regain client compute and discrete graphics market share over the next quarter, stating that this will be due to their strong software and the high power efficiency of their new Polaris GPU Architecture.  

One thing to note is that this comes not long after Intel has announced major layoffs and plans to move their focus outside the traditional desktop PC market, leaving the door wide open for AMD to make some market share gains moving forward.

While that's true now, need to remember that investors are only buying now because of 2 things. Zen and Polaris. With so much hype around Zen and Polaris at $200, if either fails or does not meet a certain level of this hype around them, I guarantee that stock will plummet. So yes good now, but it's still a very risky stock. Many companies still have a sell rating on itQuote

Fair enough dude... To be honest with you, everytime I see anything related to "AMD" I pretty much always wait for your reply/input on it.
Since you seem very knowledgeable about it all and I enjoy reading your thoughts etc regarding AMD Quote

amd recently made some sales of subsidiary asian company s and sold licensing agreements which together came to about $600m which near enough cancelled out last years losses, this had a big boost on the value of stocks as far as im aware (compared to the start of the year)
And now with zen polaris and also the deal with the consoles, i cant see stock prices plummeting too far. although i dont think they will be at nvidia lvls any time soon, i would imagine they should climb to about $10 or so reasonably quickly. but i dont imagine they will get above $20 unless the market share on gpu's dramatically changes on the release of polaris. And if that did happen it would probably bring the market values of the stocks back in line to when they were more competitive, which would still only be about 50% of the cost of a nvidia share.

Still hoping for good things. would really like to see amd really smash it this gen on gpus. havent really had an effective amd gpu since the hd 3xxx cards wiped the floor with nvidia. and lets not mention bulldozer.Quote

I read a lot about AMD and Nvidia (even Intel tbh) on stock market stuff. I find the best articles come from those sources as they get way more into detail and give whole other perspectives on companies and roadmaps etc than any gaming or technology website does. No offense to them or anything, but they make a living off that stuff so you can see the quality differences in content and depth. Although they don't cover everything like OC3D or PCGamer(as examples) do so I still read as much as I can. I'm really glad Mark took notice of this article though. I highly recommend he looks around those sources more often. I'll even help him out if he needs it
But thank you for compliment.

You are being too optimistic. I really want AMD to be more successful than they currently are, but $20 per share is pretty far fetched. Even $10 is very unlikely until I'd say after earning reports of Q1 2017. It really depends ALL on Zen. Polaris is a nice compliment but let's be honest here. CPUs bring in more money. The opportunity for growth and profit is much higher than the GPU segment currently and you have ALL database, Enterprise servers, etc etc WAITING specifically for Zens debut. They are tired of the insane prices Intel charge for. But if Zen fails, that's an immense amount of profit lost. Even a 1% market share grab from Intel(who holds nearly 100%) for AMD would net over a $1billion revenue and that's what they really need ATM.

Vega will bring round 2 for AMDs rise to higher stock prices. As that's what truly will get them into GPU market's like Super Computers or Professional software companies.Quote
