Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) stock is up Wednesday following company quarterly earnings reported after the bell Tuesday evening. AMD reported earnings per share of $0.08, in-line with expectations. Revenue rose 4.9% ro $1.42 billion, but fell short of the $1.45 billion expectation on Wall Street.
AMD reported disappointing downside guidance for Q1, with expected revenues of $1.20-1.30 billion falling short of the $1.47 billion estimates. The decline is credited to lower graphics card and memory sales, as well as a decline in blockchain driven revenue. Analysts noted the company’s fiscal year 2019 projections imply a high single-digit growth rate.
Shares of AMD stock fell more than 12% earlier this week when peer chipmaker Nvidia (NVDA) cut revenue guidance, sending shares of NVDA stock down 17% Monday and draging down semiconductors as a whole.
