A few years ago, AMD bought ATI, a smaller competitor to NVIDIA that makes game chips and video. Suddenly, AMD had its mojo back. But then enthusiasm faded, and the stock was left gasping for air. It was nearly put out to pasture in 2015.
New management and a transition into new markets has lifted AMD up to higher levels. While the company is still a fraction of its former self, it seems to be on the road to recovery. The stock was up 350% in 2016 and is looking good in 2017 so far. There is plenty to like on the chart, with strong turnover, good relative strength, and very solid price action of higher highs and higher lows.
After a very good earnings report, price action has dictated recent moves. I can see a move back into the $20’s before too long.
