Did anyone read or hear this "less than 10% of total revenue" elswhere?





Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. ( AMD) has total market capitalization of $4.98 billion. Currently the stock is being traded around $7 and has been in a 52-week range between $5.60 and $9.58.

Due to an unexpected decline in demand and pricing recently, AMD said that its wireless product sales will account for less than 10% of total revenue. Also, AMD has notable debt considerations. To meet $2.4 billion debt and capital lease obligations, AMD had $1.8 billion in liquid assets in 2010, which is less than that of 2009. Nonetheless, the company is on solid footing because of its cash flows.

AMD generated $4.8 billion and $1.6 billion of net revenue from computing solutions and graphics, respectively, in 2010. Thus, its gross profit margin increased by 4% to 46% in 2010. Currently, it has a mesmerizing return on equity of 69.2%. Earnings per share for AMD stock is $1.12, better than that of Nividia ( NVDA) stock but less than Intel's ( INTC) $2.18 and IBM’s ( IBM) lucrative $12.32. However, AMD stock’s performance can be drawn from its low price-to-earnings ratio of 6.41, the lowest among its competitors. This is why AMD stock is likely to increase in the future, and shares could very well double in price. Thus, I rate this stock as a buy.

What wireless products does AMD even have? They sold off their mobile graphics unit to Qualcomm years ago, and as AFAIK, don't specifically have any "wireless" products.

It appears that earlier this year AMD made some noise about AMD wireless TV with ViVu, but I don't think that is a shipping product yet, and would surely not be worth anything close to 10% of revenue even if it were shipping.

I need and use a fully fledged PC mainly for PC gaming, downloading torrents, and for my 6Tb of total hard disk space.

I also like the 30" monitor I have.

So for me a laptop would be a nice secondary computing device, but could never be my primary device.

Yes I could connect a laptop to my 30" monitor and I could have 2 or 3 External Hard Drives and get an X-Box for gaming, but I find having a fully fledged PC to be the far better option.

On occasions I take my whole computer to a friends place(sans monitor) to run various programs there and what not and if I had a laptop, that would work a lot better, as amongst other things, I wouldn't have to interrupt my torrent downloads.

My near future will see me with both the desktop and laptop, so if one breaks down, I have the other as a handy back up.

Even with just a desktop now, if something does breakdown, I can get it going again with replacement parts that same day(unless the breakdown occurs after the shops have closed), but if I only had a laptop and it breaks down, then I'm stuffed for who knows how long.

Desktop + laptop For the Win!!!!

AMD: Head Of Products Group Is Leaving For Another Opportunity
Last update: 9/22/2011 6:37:04 PM
     By Shara Tibken     Of DOW JONES NEWSWIRES  

NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) said Thursday that the head of its products business is leaving the chip maker "to pursue an opportunity at another company," creating a big gap a month after the company named a new chief executive.
The Sunnyvale, Calif., company said its new chief executive, Rory Read, will assume Rick Bergman's duties leading AMD's graphics and microprocessor development teams, while the company looks for a successor.
Under Bergman's leadership, AMD's graphics business gained market share, and the company introduced a new chip line, dubbed Fusion, that combines graphics and computing on the same piece of silicon. But AMD also has faced delays and production problems with its mainstream computing chip called Llano, and it has seen other executives and engineers leave the company.
"Llano was late, and execution with Globalfoundries [the spinoff of AMD's manufacturing operations] has been poor," MKM Partners analyst Dan Berenbaum said. "Rick has been around for a lot of the execution problems."
Further details as to why Bergman left his position as senior vice president and general manager weren't provided, and attempts to reach him were unsuccessful. AMD said Bergman's new duties likely would become apparent in the coming weeks.
Evercore analyst Patrick Wang said Bergman's departure is a blow for AMD, with Bergman being a "relatively stable" presence at the company, helping it withstand the challenges of recent years. "Having him leave has got to impact morale," Wang said.
Bergman took on a more public role at AMD while the chip maker was searching for a new chief executive. The company had ousted its previous CEO in January and only named Read, the former president of Lenovo Group Ltd. (LNVGY, 0992.HK), as the permanent successor late last month.
Before taking over the products group, Bergman served as general manager of the discrete-graphics business. He joined the company as part of AMD's acquisition of ATI in late 2006.
The chip maker has long faced a tough battle with larger rival Intel Corp. (INTC). Now, both companies are grappling with rising demand for smartphones and tablet computers, which don't use their chips, and slowing growth in their core PC market. Dirk Meyer left as AMD's CEO in January on board concerns that he wasn't moving quickly enough to begin offering chips for mobile devices.
Meanwhile, AMD also said Paul Struhsaker has joined the company to lead its newly formed commercial-business division.He will oversee product management and roadmap planning for AMD's server, high-performance computing and embedded products. Previously, he was senior vice president of engineering at cable provider Comcast Corp. (CMCSA, CMCSK).
