AMD Stock Breaks $100 Price, Slightly Up from $7 Prior to Zen Breakthrough in 2017

As of 16:11 UTC today (29/07), the AMD stock has broken through the $100 stock-price glass ceiling, and is at $103.91, up 1384% from the $7 stock price in late-2016, prior to the company's competitive breakthrough with the "Zen" architecture. The latest rally comes in the wake of AMD's latest Q2-2021 financial results, where it clocked a 99% growth in YoY revenue. In the call, AMD mentioned that it is on track to maintaining its performance leadership, on the backs of the new "Zen 4" CPU architecture, RDNA3 graphics-, and CDNA2 compute architecture.

Thats actually when I bought it! I didn't think they would actually go out of business but also didn't expect the stock to get anywhere near $100 either.

I almost bought 1500 shares of stock when it was around $1.50 mark, I had a feeling they would make a comeback, but at the time it would have wiped all my savings. So I felt it wasn't worth the risk just in-case I was wrong... I'd have 140 grand or so by now if I had not chickened out. all from a 1500 dollar investment 6 years ago.

mindblowing. I'll never forgive myself for being such a chicken shit on it.

its a duopoly industry, no reason to sell. its a safe bet. good on you. personally, if I had not been such an idiot and did invest when it was around $1.50 a share... I probably would cash out now. my needs are much less than most people. I could pay off my parents house for around 50 grand cash, I could buy me a new 60 mpg hyundai ioniq car for 23 grand cash, and sipping that gasoline will save money money over the next decade.

100-150 grand would dramatically improve my quality of life, from anxiety/stress to calm and peace for a long period of time. but again, each persons situation is different. for me i want security and stability long term, before i begin playing with "money i am willing to lose" type thinking

Competition in price? Shareholders most likely want AMD to increase their profit margin.

That's not a sustainable trend, as it will put products out of reach and ultimately reduce profits.

I bought in a $20 a share and I sold half when they hit $75 a while back. I'm very tempted to sell what I have left for $100 a share.

AMD is way overvalued right now. I mean yeah everything sells out quick true, but honestly these are very very niche markets, eventually everyone will have a decent PC within this niche market and have no need to upgrade for 5 years or more. I mean I am using my gtx 1070 laptop and maxxing out FFXIV mmo at 165 fps 165hz 1080p and having a blast... at some point you just don't really need horsepower anymore unless you play the latest AAA games (which suck a lot here lately anyway so meh)

(also they can't be making much money on PS5 or xbox series x... I believe both sony and M$ are taking a loss on each sale of the console if I remember correctly, which prob means means pennies in profit for AMD)

I give it two years or so, AMD will probably reach $140 a share at its peak but then crash to $50-60 share range once the market is no longer in demand and the shelves are saturated with stock. but nothing wrong with riding high while you can so more power to them.

Nvidia however will keep rising and rising, Nvidia has its tentacles deep into the healthcare world now and AMD does not, and thats where the real money is at short and long term.
