Concerns arise about AMD Puma, analyst suggests AMD may soon be sold

By Ann Steffora Mutschler, Senior Editor
EDN

Semiconductor analyst Doug Freedman of financial research company American Technology Research released a report today suggesting there may be a potential problem with microprocessor maker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD)’s upcoming Puma platform for notebooks, which would likely hit the company’s stock and would increase pressure on the board to look at a possible sale of the company or a management change.

I read one pundit who opined that the reason they still have Hector is because there's nobody else to replace him who is better.

If that's true, it would certainly explain the state of American corporations.....

I guess that 1.3 mill doesn't attract the best. AMD sure could use a great honcho.

And I'm willing to bet that the average guy off the street could do better!

(If he isn't reciving the same money to fail... CEO's and Congress, neither needs to succeed to grow rich... maybe we should look into that?

Wait a minute, Congress stood up against the Unmentionable One recently. Is this a new trend or a passing fad? Sigh.

Over the years I spent in the financial printing business I have made a few good contacts; three of them have told me recently that AMD should drop a couple more dollars and then they should become a good buy, with a buyout in the immediate future-as in this year.

They weren't in agreement about who the buyer would be, but didn't laugh when I suggested Motorola or Cisco (my predictions).

EDIT:
Jus tchecked the ticker- stock is at 7.08- think it can go to 5 bucks? What a great company if it's in the right hands.
