Today's video focuses on Advanced Micro Devices (AMD -1.80%), a company focused on producing high-performance processors and graphics cards. I discuss its upcoming acquisition and upcoming keynotes. Here are some highlights from the video.
- AMD released an update on Dec. 30, 2021, about its Xilinx (XLNX) acquisition. The update informs investors that AMD now expects to close in the first quarter of 2022 due to the required approvals needed by regulators. Originally the deal was expected to close by the end of the fourth quarter of 2021.
- Investors curious about AMD's new product should tune in to AMD's 2022 Product Premier schedule on Jan. 4, 2022, at 10 a.m. ET. A livestream will be available on AMD's website, and the company is expected to provide updates on its Ryzen processor and Radeon graphics.
- The bullishness on AMD's stock price on Monday could be due to online reports that AMD was named a top pick in the semiconductor industry by Goldman Sachs.
