Here is an overview of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. after reporting earnings. This options trade was recommended to members of Stock Options Made Easy on July 18; and was then suggested publicly on Monday, July 24, 2017, with the company reporting the next day; producing major profits within a very short period of executing the trades.
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD)
The Suggestion……from “Earnings Predictions for the Week Ahead”
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMD), a global semiconductor company, is likely to deliver blow-out top-line numbers because of Ryzen.
Ryzen (pronounced RYE zen) is an AMD CPU aimed at the server, desktop, workstation, media center PC and all-in-one markets. ... Codenamed Zen in development, Ryzen is the first major architectural change for AMD since Bulldozer.
Advanced Micro Devices is set to report earnings next week, Tuesday July 25, after the market closes, with the Street’s estimates right now standing at a 1- to 3-cent loss on revenues of $1.16 billion, and the “whisper number” is for a gain of 1 cent.
Last quarter saw Advanced Micro Devices’ shares get absolutely annihilated following both a revenue miss and lowered guidance.
With AMD now at an inflection point on the charts, expect another big post-earnings move this quarter, and a more bullish stance is expected. Major options players are expecting a 14 percent move.
** OPTION TRADE: Buy the AMD AUG 18 2017 14.000 CALL at approximately $0.85. Sell price is left to your own judgment.
After the bell on Tuesday, AMD reported
second quarter revenue of $1.22 billion (up 19% annually) and adjusted earnings
per share of $0.02, beating consensus analyst estimates of $1.16 billion and
$0.00. AMD said computing and graphics revenues jumped 51% from one year ago.
It also guided for third quarter revenue
up 23% sequentially, plus or minus 3%, with a midpoint implying revenue of $1.5
billion, up 15% annually and above a $1.39 billion consensus.
In addition, AMD says it now expects
full-year revenue to be up by a mid-to-high teen’s percentage, better than a
prior (conservative) outlook for low-double digit growth.
