AMD Stock Slumps on In-Line Q1 Earnings, Demand for Ryzen "Strong"

AMD Ryzen 5: Mainstream processors created to bring innovation to the high-volume, sub-$300 CPU market with a disruptive price-to-performance ratio for gamers and creators.

But the VR opportunity is a huge one, and it can definitely accommodate more than two players, as different companies are trying to attack different aspects of the market. AMD shares plunged 10% in after-hours trading, wiping away the frothy gains collected since its last earnings report. The stock stands almost -14.47% off versus the 52-week high and 285.51% away from the 52-week low.

That is the issue for investors who have gotten into AMD based on the potential for its new products, as they must now debate whether to continue to hold and hope for a really big second half or even a 2018 payoff. Typically, they estimate what the company's earnings and cash flow will be for the next couple of years, and then apply a ratio - such as a price-to-earnings ratio - to those estimates to determine what the future stock price should theoretically be. (AMD), the 200 simple moving average (SMA) is considered a key indicator by traders and market analysts for determining the overall long-term trend. Sometimes, companies with strong fundamentals but with low annualized EPS of less than 4 or 5 % but analysts may talk about a huge turnaround in the earnings due to heavy order book.

The current price is staying above the SMA lines which signify strength and is generally healthy/positive and may provide the momentum for driving the share price higher. These holdings make up 76.53% of the company's outstanding shares. It is quite understandable that the market has extremely high expectations of AMD, and beating guidance estimates isn't enough to send it higher after an earnings report.
