David Wong, an analyst at Nomura Instinet specializing in semiconductor stocks, initiated coverage on the stock with a buy rating. He believes that AMD will earn $0.27 per share and $0.67 in 2020.

Wong explained, “We think that AMD’s high revenue growth and rapidly improving profitability justify what we consider to be an elevated multiple. We believe that further share momentum, as well as favorable mix, will help drive AMD’s sales growth.”

In analyzing the market cycles for AMD, we can see the stock is clearly in the rising phase of its current cycle. While it is also in a resistance zone, it is relatively early in this cycle. We think it may continue to rise to $31 in the near term before tailing off as this cycle matures.
