Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Receives a Buy from Jefferies

In a report released yesterday, Mark Lipacis from Jefferies maintained a Buy rating on Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD), with a price target of $30. The company’s shares closed on Friday at $25.17, close to its 52-week high of $27.30.

Lipacis commented:

“We raise our 2019 EPS est and our price target following our meeting with management at our annual Chicago Summit. We have higher conviction that in 2H19, AMD will ship a server MPU with higher transistor density than INTC for the first time in recent history, if not ever. We see this as a foundational shift in competitive dynamics. Meanwhile, our checks also suggest that AMD continues to take share in high-end notebooks. AMD remains a top Tectonic Shift pick. Foundational Shift. For most of the past 12 years, Intel has executed near flawlessly, as AMD often stumbled and lost share. Intel’s manufacturing lead led to smaller, cheaper, lower power and higher performance transistors – making it nearly impossible for AMD to reverse its share loss.”
