Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD)
AMD down from 8.20 in april to 2.18 Fridays close.
Droped 16% friday on aprox 4 times normal volume. Either Friday or early next week could be capitulation bottom? I was wrong on this stock before & if memory correct bought @ 2.85

Reason: Avrex should be amd not adm please correct
AMD advanced micro devices
In April stock was trading @ 8.2 was down 16% on Friday to 2.18 on volume aprox 4 times normal. Using google I could not find higher volume day going back only 5 years.
Capitulation bottom occures after panic high volume selling after an extened down trend.
I made a mistake & started thread useing ADM istead of AMD so that thread should maybe be destroyed ?
Sorry for the mistake but it is also an excellent example of how dangerous investing can be. If I made that mistake while placing an order the results might not be so forgiving.
Have you tried AMD's products?

I can see AMD as a trade. Everyone has to make sure Intel has a competitor in the PC and server market for chips.
However, I don't see the company as having great prospects in the future and thus don't like them as a buy and hold.
Too risky for me to invest in, but I do like the company as a consumer. Used AMD in my latest PC build and saved a lot of money for not going with Intel.
However AMD did recently hire a new chief architect for CPU cores, the same guy that designed the K8 chip back in 03 that whomped the Pentium 4: http://hothardware.com/News/AMD-Hire...Back-On-Board/
If he can design another new chip that is as revolutionary as the K8 was, then AMD is back in the game.
