In the following video, Senior Technology Analyst Eric Bleeker discusses AMD's 8% gains today. Of note, Eric discusses a Goldman Sachs upgrade yesterday but notes that AMD has been weighed down by peer Intel's lowered guidance. He warns that AMD is affected by weak PC sales but has only about 6% of the server market, which is still seeing robust sales. To see Eric's full thoughts, check out the video.

Better yet, you'll continue to receive updates as news develops for an entire year. Click here now to learn more.
