The following video is from Wednesday's MarketFoolery podcast in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Austin Smith and Jason Moser, discuss the top business and investing stories.
Advanced Micro Devices has hired JPMorgan Chase to look at some possible options, one of which, it was rumored, included selling the company. But after AMD issued a statement denying that it was interested in selling, shares dropped this morning to a 21-year low. In this segment, the guys don't hold back in talking about what they truly think of this company, why the market wanted them to sell, and why some groups, such as Microsoft, may have reason to hope that AMD sticks around.
