  • AMD EPS earnings history chart by year?

AMD’s EPS earnings history chart shows a fluctuating pattern. Started with the lowest earning per share, but next two years it reached a significantly high level. This higher EPS indicates AMD’s strong market performance & significant profit recovery ability. So, they made enough strategic plans to expand their products & surprisingly a large number of customers accept it. 

AMD EPS earnings history chart by year

But EPS drastically falls from 2022 to 2023. That means AMD started to lose market dominance. AMD perhaps faces huge competition in the semiconductor market & could not beat big giants like Nvidia & Intel. 

AMD’s historical EPS performance doesn’t assure 100x stock growth. So, AMD stock would be a profitable but not be semiconductor market giant.

Is AMD a good stock to buy?

Yes, AMD is a good stock to buy. AMD stock has many positive signs of being a high-performing share. 

Below, I have analyzed in detail why AMD stocks a buy.

AMD stock price chart

 The AMD stock price chart shows a volatile nature over five years. AMD stock is struggling to fix a stable price, which indicates tough competition from competitors. It started with below $25 & reached more than $160 at the end of 2021. AMD had faced short sales & high operating expenses. However, AMD tried to balance cost vs revenue but failed to keep it up to next year.

AMD stock price chart

Two thousand twenty-three is good for AMD; they may have increased sales & lower operating costs. 2023 also suggests growing demand for semiconductor products, & customers’ positive attitude towards AMD. Adaptability is a good sign for AMD stock that helps to grow market share. AMD reached $138, about an 80% price increase from the last five years.

Now, let’s come to the point: Will the price of AMD increase in the future?

  1. If AMD focuses on market expansion by lowering costs, then AMD stock price will increase.
  2. AMD has two main competitors: Intel & NVIDIA. AMD could be an equivalent company to Intel, but beating NVIDIA would be very challenging. So, AMD’s share price will rise to a certain level.
  3. If everything is okay, AMD’s share price could rise to 20% to 50% from the current market price (stock price is $138 based on the article writing date).   
  • AMD stock split history

AMD stock split undergoes six times with a ratio of either 3 for 2 or 2 for 1. This split history suggests AMD’s strategic plan to attract more investors at affordable prices. It also benefits existing shareholders because they will get more shares at lower prices. 

AMD stock split history

AMD’s stock split will help to grow the semiconductor market & balance over price of stock. So, there is little chance of facing a liquidity crisis or too-pricy AMD stock.

But you may ask yourself, is too many stocks split good for investors?

The straight answer is a stock split is not good or bad. Rather, it is neutral for investors. Your stock value will not change, but your overall position will change. You can consider the stock split history of Microsoft; they split nine times from 1987 to 2003 to balance the price of stock & attract more retail investors. Later, Microsoft stock became a profitable investment. 

However, a stock split occurred between 1978 to 2000, but no further stock split after 24 years. So, if a stock split brings financial benefit for investors & company, then AMD can decide to split its stock again. 

Therefore, we can assume that AMD stock has little chance to fluctuate its price over time & if it happens, they can split stock to reduce over price.    

  • Semiconductor industry trend

The graph shows a positive growth trend for the semiconductor industry over time. It started with a below $50 billion market & gradually reached more than $5,50 billion market at the end of 2023. 

semiconductor demand chart

The maximum growth occurs in 2022, closer to $6,00 billion & projects the same growth in 2024. It is about a 30% rise in market share from 2020 to 2022

The growth level was not always parallel. Perhaps the industry had faced supply chain disruptions and geopolitical tensions or grew slower in developed countries compared to developing countries.    

For example, Asia (Taiwan) currently dominates the semiconductor market, but Europe and North America are just emerging as new markets. So, the Semiconductor industry has a good chance to grow its market in regions or subcontinent where they have zero market share

Let’s see some surveys; what do studies say about the semiconductor industry?

A study conducted by Statista agrees that the semiconductor industry will grow in the long term

McKinsey forecasted annual growth on average 6 to 8% up to 2030. They have forecasted a trillion-dollar industry by 2030.  

Overall, the semiconductor industry has the potential to grow due to its increased demand, huge investment & government support. So, these all are positive signs for AMD stock to be a profitable investment.

  • AMD stock competitors
MarketCompetitorsMarket size (%)
Qualcomm, ARM5
AI AcceleratorsNVIDIA75
Mobile ChipsetsQualcomm40
Huawei, HiSilicon5
AMD stock competitors

You can see from the AMD competitor table that AMD is a rising company in three segments: CPU, GPU & AI. It doesn’t seem that AMD can beat or become equal to Intel & NVIDIA. Intel has a long-term reputation for the CPU market where NVIDIA dominates GPU with 80% market. In the AI market, AMD has a chance to overcome Intel, but it is really hard to be equal with NVIDIA. 

In the Mobile Chipsets, you will see a big fight between Qualcomm & MediaTek, but AMD has zero market. This fight doesn’t suggest that Mobile Chipsets has a negative industry trend or an easy-to-capture market. 

It is also possible that AMD has taken some strategic plans to enter Mobile Chipsets in the upcoming time, but that doesn’t mean AMD can easily be equal to Unisoc or Samsung. But we can expect a market expansion of AMD which can increase stock price. 

Moreover, if AMD keeps its fast & efficient product performance, then there is a good chance to grow the market & stock value at the present pace. 

Overall, AMD is now in the growth stage & has much potential to be a profitable stock, but they have to go a long way to be the market leader.   

  • Semiconductor geopolitics 

Geopolitical tension can negatively impact the semiconductor industry if there is any war or economic sanction. This sanction will disrupt the Supply Chain, restrict trade location, & increase raw material prices.

In short, AMD stock may face a huge price hike & instant fall

But there also creates an opportunity for the company that works on specific semiconductor products. 

Such as, if war occurs, then the defense budget will increase among rival countries. This spending will create a new micro market for military-grade ensemiconductors products. 

Also, this new market will create a resource shortage for the commercial market to meet increased demand, which ultimately leads to price fluctuation.

Therefore, AMD must come up with a proper plan to survive during geopolitical tension. 

Concluding Thought

AMD can be one of the leading stocks that can be a good competitor for Intel & NVIDIA. The fundamental analysis indicates potential growth, whereas industry analyses show medium growth stock. Analysts are bullish regarding AMD stock price, but past performance doesn’t assure a future profit. 

There is no doubt that semiconductors will be one of the trending industries in the upcoming time but political instability could divert the market to a single location. 

If AMD makes enough advance plans to take advantage of the geopolitical crisis, then AMD stock would be high performing stock in the upcoming day.
