AMD Takes a Bigger Revenue Hit than Microsoft from Huawei Ban: Goldman Sachs

You're reading/interpreting the graphs wrong. Smaller is better. First graph is how big the chunks of revenue are and the exposure is what % of their revenue stream did that junk represent. It hardly made a dent in MS/Intel revenue to the point they probably didn't notice.
You are reading my post wrong.

So many obvious interpretations can be derived from those 2 graphs, something like

" Broadcom / Qualcomm lost trillions of dollars with serious exposure."
" Flex, the ultimate victim behind the Huawei ban with 5% of its revenues being exposed "

would better suit the graphs more since they are the huge bars underneath.

Yet the OP chose to focus on AMD, which barely made it through the top half of the chart.

I could say Intel took a bigger hit than AMD in the revenue section, and more exposure than Microsoft.

What is the point of this title?

The phone is indispensabil to access the mind affecting drug that is "social media". :laugh:
It actually isn't. It's the most convenient access gateway because it's always with you. But it's not the only one.

I think the comment was meant to be a bit tongue in cheek hence the <laugh> at the end. ;)

I have no doubt a fair majority of folks spend most/all of their social media time on their phones. So in the sense of data gathering for said media companies, it effectively is indispensable as the usage, and their revenues would plummet if people didn't have phones to connect with. :)

*shrug. Looking at my AMD stock over the past months, this is equivalent of them announcing their best quarter yet.
