Berger claims Asian distributors performed better than expected in Q2,
and that they are a bit more optimistic about Q3. According to his
research, AMD's Q2 production increased by a whopping 78 percent
compared to Q1, and it is expected to grow by a single point in Q3.
FBR Capital Markets' target share price for AMD is $5.25, and it is
currently trading at $4.14. Six months ago, AMD slumped to $1.65, and
it's share price is slowly growing back to pre recession levels.
However, just over three years ago, shortly after the ATI acquisition, AMD was trading at over $40.
