AMD's stock price seems to shadow intel. So if Intel goes up, so does AMD. At least for the time being. If Amd can expand its prod capacity it can take a significant share of desktop pc's from intel.But the real profit lies in the server high end market. Hence AMD760 smp and the sledgehammer. Looks pretty good for AMD. Probably not a good short term investment, but definitely long term(1yr+). Mind you this is just my HO.
