AMD today announced revenue for the third quarter of 2021 of $4.3 billion, operating income of $948 million, net income of $923 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.75. On a non-GAAP basis, operating income was $1.1 billion, net income was $893 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.73. "AMD had another record quarter as revenue grew 54% and operating income doubled year-over-year," said AMD president and CEO Dr. Lisa Su. "3rd Gen EPYC processor shipments ramped significantly in the quarter as our data center sales more than doubled year-over-year. Our business significantly accelerated in 2021, growing faster than the market based on our leadership products and consistent execution."

It's good to see AMD doing good. More means more for R&D, which means better product for us.

The Company repurchased more than 7 million shares of common stock for $750 million during the quarter.

The first of its buy back plan that will drive up share prices. If you havent bought any by now you could be missing out.

The article implies AMD will eventually be starting to pay dividends.
