11:42 EDTBRCM, TXN, INTC, MU, AMDAMD plummets after profit miss, analyst downgrades
Shares of semiconductor manufacturer Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) are sinking after the company’s second quarter profit trailed analysts’ consensus estimates. It also received several analyst downgrades. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Advanced Micro Devices reported second quarter adjusted EPS of 2c and revenue of $1.44B, compared to analysts’ consensus estimates of 3c and $1.44B. Q2 gross margin was 35%. WHAT’S NOTABLE: For the third quarter, AMD expects revenue to increase 2%, plus or minus 3%, sequentially, compared to consensus of $1.57B. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was mixed. FBR Capital downgraded AMD to Market Perform from Outperform citing a lack of earnings visibility following the company's weaker than expected Q3 outlook. The firm lowered its price target for the shares to $4.50 from $6. Another firm, BofA/Merrill, also downgraded AMD to Underperform from Neutral. The firm downgraded shares and lowered estimates to reflect weak guidance and lack of visibility. It lowered its price target to $4 from $4.50. Conversely, Wedbush said AMD’s fundamentals remain intact. After AMD reported lower than expected Q2 pro forma EPS, Wedbush says that Q2 was the fourth consecutive quarter for which the company demonstrated profitability, tight OpEx controls, and continued product execution. It thinks these trends are significantly positive and kept an Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, AMD fell 81c, or about 17.6%, to $3.77 on nearly three times its average daily trading volume. Including today’s pull back, the stock has lost approximately 19% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the semiconductor space include Intel (INTC), Broadcom (BRCM), Micron Technology (MU), and Texas Instruments (TXN).
