  • Intel (INTC -1.7%), AMD (AMD -2.9%), Dell (DELL -1.9%), and H-P (HPQ -2.2%) underperform after Evercore's Rob Chira slashes his estimates on (what else?) concerns about PC demand. Chira now predicts 2012 PC unit sales will fall 4% Y/Y, worse than IDC's forecast, and expects flat sales next year. "We estimate Q3 units fall year-over-year across every major market: Consumer, corporate, desktop, notebook, U.S., Europe, and APAC," he writes. AMD is also getting hit by an estimate cut from JMP.  [View news story]
    I still hold on to AMD shares;the reasons are, it is still the biggest rival for INTC and at the same time offers the lower price choice, while from time to time it can surprise the market by putting out cutting edge products too. Any prices under US$4.0 is a bargain unless you presume it will turn into receivership.

    It is also interesting to note that since 2010, AMD share price used to start declining lower and lower until around early October, when it reached the bottom and picked up again.

    Based on above mentioned, I would recommend it is about time to buy AMD shares now.

  • Thailand, Indonesia And Peru Look Good Vs. Other EM Countries  [View article]
    I have just returned from a one week trip to Bangkok and find that Thailand is a very potential country. Its people are diligent, polite and friendly to foreign visitors. Thailand is full of natural resources and has many scenic spots to attract tourist besides the low exchange rate benefit to attract tourists from abroad. All in all, I think Thailand is the best holiday and shopping paradise for foreign tourists and a very promising country in near future.

    If it is true, then he should be condemned and despised by investors and people concerned. It is another kind of fraud morally.

  • Intel: Time to Consider Buying This Compelling Stock  [View article]
    In short, I have sold my other shares and trasferred my funds into Intel, which is safe in the first place; secondly, it is potential for capital gains; third, it gives good dividends. Whateles can you expect from a risky business called: sharemarket?

    Intc is in every analyst's eyes a good and trustworthy share to hold for long term investment, but it has run up over 21% recently. It is normal for a little correction. I have been holding this share for over 10 years and therefore sold half of my holdings which I will buy back at its weakness whenever the chance arises.

  • Intel Posts Solid Results, Outlook  [View article]
    After so many positive aspects are discussed in the article and based on the better-than-expected outcome from Intel, the author still dares not recommend Intel shares beyond "neutral", "hold", I just wonder what is the good of reading his article. Unless, he has something from inside circle to hide. Investors better choose shares at random on their own than waste time reading rubish.

  • AMD: Chipping Away at Intel  [View article]
    Smart 1's comment is real example of economics idiot. If you are so sure of what u said, then, go shorting AMD with all you can. Then see what happen.... Any listed company, as long as its mainstream business is running, all has its residue value. Or else, many
    listed companies worldwide would have collapsed already.AMD share price is so low becuse market overacted, panic. Just like the oil price is so high because speculators manipulated, markets overacted...
