AMD Stock hits all time high on AI demand


Recommended Posts

Quote

AMD stock surged on Tuesday, reaching a 52-week high of $158.74. Long-term stockholders were already enjoying riding a steady uptrend, but news of strong AI demand and price target increases from big-name analysts converged to boost the stock by 8% in a single day. AMD’s all-time high was $164.46 back in November 2021, and it has moved to within striking distance of breaking that record.

This article is from yesterday. AMD is now at $170.

I remember when AMD was $6 a share. By the time I found some investing guts, people were saying AMD had peaked back when it reached the 30s, so I decided to go with NVDA instead. I did hold AMD briefly for a short term, but I didn't know what I was doing with it back then. On the other hand, I've had NVDA on two separate occasions but I most recently bought back into it for the long haul in 2020.

 

My cost basis on NVDA is $73.05. It closed at $594.91 today for an unrealized gain of 714.4%.

 

My problem, if you can call it that, is that it's 22.7% of my brokerage portfolio now. I'd be stupid to take money out of there, so it's more challenging to backfill other stocks to balance out the portfolio better. I'm already too deeply invested in semiconductor stocks and ETFs (33.8%) to increase my holdings in this sector.

 

Nonetheless, I still refuse to buy an RTX 40 series card. 😆

Yeah I didn't really know how to buy or mine Bitcoin in 2009, 2010, and I didn't really know how to buy stocks in 2012.

Sad but true. I only got into stocks in 2017. Crypto never really entered my consciousness until later, and even then, I never took it that seriously.

My peak balance was $110, and my initial deposit was something like $20 into BTC just to use as a wallet. I can't be upset though. I got in really late and all my tech stocks fared about the same or better over the same time period through the present day without as much volatility.

I am not a financial advisor. 

 

MSFT and AMD are two incredibly poignant companies right here, right now. 

 

It's kind of like reading between the lines: 

 

MSFT + SONY went AMD, what two decades now?

AMD upended Intel in the server space what, 5 years ago, 10? 

MSFT owns Windows, right? Used on nearly ALL US Gov, DOD, etc. Didn't the DOD pick MSFT Azure for backend?

Wait a minute, isn't MSFT going to get permits for their own nuclear reactors? 🤔

OpenAI rolls on the scene publicly in what 2016 after the 2015 pledge, and MSFT has been involved since 2019 at a billion dollars, now 10 billion more?

 

If I had to pick two stocks to buy now at 18 years old, I'd buy these two. Every cent. Strong feels for me.

Yeah I got into crypto in 2017 with about $1200 total and sold it off in 2021 for about $5500. But that was my only foray into it. Forgot what the taxes were on that, but wasn't bad.

 

Stocks at this point I have a few but not much. Most of my investments are in other avenues as opposed to individual stocks.

It seems like any company deeply invested in AI hardware like Nvidia or AMD is selling water in the desert right now, and Microsoft is selling ice. 

 

I don't do crypto at all. I don't see any reason to investing crypto vs traditional stocks. Investing in one company you think might double is better than investing in crypto and hoping it doubles IMO. 

 

I only do tech stocks. All my investments are things I can fully wrap my head around. Aside from the covid inflation era, I've done well here. My brokerage account is up 30% over the last three months on Nvidia and Microsoft gains. If I had spare cash to add to my investments right now, it would go on AMD for sure. 

 

This is definitely a "rising tide lifts all boats" kind of thing.

I mean at one point AMD over the course of like one or two weeks during the 09' dump was straddling $1.50~$3.  

 

I made huge gains from a large purchase then, but sold 90% at $30. 

 

I have little left but am glad I held onto some. Unreal from $30 to now. 

 

Not a crazy amount in short time, but wow.

I was just out of high school back then, had no idea how to buy stocks. I remember seeing AMD at $2 and pleading with my dad to buy some, which he didn't haha. Can't blame him, I was just his nerdy son who had never talked about stocks before suddenly giving investing advice. It seemed clear to me that AMD would either go bankrupt entirely or their stock would have to go up, and knowing the stubbornness of the hardware enthusiast community to not let Intel win forever, I felt AMD simply could not fail and leave Intel with a monopoly, and so the gains were basically a guarantee. 

 

This situation with AI in general, not just AMD specifically, feels a little like seeing AMD at $2 back then in the sense that it seems extremely likely that AI related stocks will continue to go up with no limit that is easy to see right now.

No doubt the short wave began a year ago, the medium wave is incoming. 


But, will it be like the dot-com boom though? Huge 4 year span of insane bubbling or will it inevitably change the world in greater ways, let alone the market pricing possible and bubbles aside? 

 

It's anyone's prediction for quote-on-quote AGI; it's clear it will come eventually. I suppose someone in an inner circle somewhere has a more definite estimation. 

 

I reference many opinions citing the fad tendency in new technologies, but it seems awful naive to bury your head in the sand at this point.

I agree, AI is definitely not a fad. We're really at the beginning of the AI tech boom. It's definitely possible that some shift in the tech's development could lead to an upset for investors who are banking on top chip makers to remain on top with high demand, but AI overall is definitely not a fad.

Yeah I am in this same boat after selling mine off. Crypto is too volatile and I don't really believe in it's premise anymore like I maybe once did a long time ago. Money is always centralized somewhere.

 

Oh trust me, tech stocks are part of my investment portfolios. Things have been doing very well lately. My 401k is the same way. I choose all the funds that I want as part of its portfolio and on the stock side of things, I'm definitely in all those as well.

 

If I were to just buy individual company stocks again, I definitely agree that Microsoft, AMD, and Nvidia make a ton of sense similar to how Amazon and Apple have been in the past.

While there certainly can and probably will be a bubble of sort as eventually everyone and their mother getting into AI has to find a breaking point somewhere at which point the serious guys that can do anything with it, will continue to do so, meanwhile the rest will probably somewhat be like the dot com bubble and crypto/blockchain, but like those...hasn't gone away. Obviously we all still use the internet, and crypto hasn't gone anywhere. For better or worse, AI is here to stay.
