Future outlook and Larry Cordisco’s remarks

For the fill financial year, AMD now forecasts $26.3 billion in revenue versus $21.5 billion it had guided for earlier. It expects $6.5 billion in revenue this quarter. This compares to analysts at $5.14 billion revenue for Q2 and $21.48 billion for the year.

The American multinational now sees gross margin at 54% in 2022. On CNBC’s “Closing Bell”, Osterweiss Capital Management’s Larry Cordisco said:

People were nervous about PC sales, the segment was really strong. Guide for the next quarter looks really strong. And gross margin was where we expected. So, I’d say it’s a pretty good report.

Cordisco dubs AMD down 40% for the year as “reasonably valued”. The fact that it continues to steal share in data centre from Intel, he added, is reason enough to believe that AMD can withstand the feared weakness in the PC market.
