Advanced Micro Devices’s Underweight Rating Reaffirmed at Morgan Stanley (AMD)
Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE:AMD)‘s stock had its “underweight” rating reiterated by research analysts at Morgan Stanley in a report released on Wednesday, American Banking and Market News reports. They currently have a $2.50 price objective on the stock. Morgan Stanley’s price objective would suggest a potential downside of 40.05% from the stock’s previous close.
The analysts wrote, “We estimate that AMD shipped 6.8 mm units (27 mm run rate) to the console market in 4Q, for $562 mm revenues, with total 2013 builds of 12 mm units vs. 7 mm sell in (10-12 week lead time),” the report noted. “Year 2 of the Xbox 360/PS3 cycle shipped 17.8 mm units, and despite stronger Year 1 numbers for this gen (due to higher supply and lower price points), we don’t believe the TAM has expanded. We expect shipments of 18.7 mm units in 2014, below 4Q run rates. We still expect a small EPS loss in 2014.”
