Shall we be pessimists or optimists today? With our bottle half-full, I can adhere my hat on the actuality that Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) is my best aerialist so far for 2018. However, with a bottle half-empty approach, it’s accessible to focus on the actuality that I cut AMD banal way too early, declining to let my champ run far enough.
But in every barter and investment, there’s a assignment to be learned. (For the record, I’m a absolute person, so I will book up my after-effects as a bottle half-full bearings with a assignment learned, to boot).
Still, there are affluence of traders who are either in the aforementioned position or absent the move altogether.

top banal trades for AMD
There are a lot of positives actuality for the bulls, admitting AMD banal amount affairs aback from $33 to $26, a abatement of about 21%. Take apprehension of how acceptable of a trending banal AMD has become over the accomplished three to four months. Consistently bouncing on uptrend abutment (black line) and the 20-day affective average.
However, in October the 20-day affective boilerplate chock-full acting as support, as AMD banal knifed through $30 on its way to a steeper decline.
In accomplishing so though, it set up AMD for its aboriginal analysis of the 50-day affective boilerplate aback gapping aloft it in April. Further, the move coincided with a analysis of uptrend support. And lastly, it bankrupt out aloft the bottomward approach it had formed over the aftermost few weeks.
That’s a buy-signal trifecta right there.
The adorableness of this setup? It allows for a assemblage aback to the 20-day affective boilerplate at $29 and conceivably alike aloft it if drive can sustain. Added importantly, if the banal break down, we accept authentic risk. A aing beneath uptrend abutment and the 50-day affective boilerplate negates the move and puts us aback on the sidelines.
All of this is to say that AMD banal looks acceptable on the continued ancillary appropriate now. The one admonition is the broader market. If the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA:SPY) and PowerShares QQQ ETF (NASDAQ:QQQ) abide to pullback, AMD may accept agitation blame higher.
Advanced Micro Devices has been roaring college this year and it’s not absolutely bright why. AMD is acid debt, axis cash-flow absolute and earning a profit. But none of that happened in one quick quarter. It’s been boring alive its way there abaft the accomplished baton that is CEO Lisa Su.
In any regard, bears like to shoot at AMD banal and I’m not absolutely abiding why. The aggregation doesn’t accomplish top-of-the-line articles like Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) but acutely there is a bazaar for AMD products. And no, its price-to-earnings arrangement wasn’t as low as Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), but AMD has awfully above growth.
Further though, AMD wasn’t obnoxiously priced and it had a lower price-to-sales arrangement than both Intel and Nvidia. We’ve been authoritative that case for about a year now on InvestorPlace. In fact, beforehand this year we said investors could be buyers of all three stocks if they wanted, but we adopted aloof AMD and NVDA. That has creates some austere alpha in 2018.
To be sure, there are still two abode larboard to be appear for budgetary 2018. Analysts apprehend balance to abound added than 175% this year on the aback of 26% sales growth. For 2019, it’s no abruptness those estimates alarm for decelerating but still admirable advance of 43% and 10%, respectively. As balance advance outpaces acquirement improvement, attending for margins to get bigger over the aing six abode as well.
