AMD's Big Run Continues With Q2 Earnings Beat

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMD) has been one of the hottest stocks over the past year, successfully resuscitating itself from the brink of death, delivering a nearly 600 percent gain in the past 18 months.

The chipmaker delivered second-quarter earnings of 2 cents per share, up from a loss of 5 cents in the same quarter of last year. Sales also grew to $1.22 billion, compared to $1.16 billion in Q2 2016.

AMD’s management sees third-quarter sales up 23 percent, which equates to a 3 percent gain quarter over quarter.
