Whilst the main equity market saw a day of moderate chop, there was very powerful strength in Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which settled +7.0% at $14.43. Broader price action remains very bullish, and the 25/30 zone appears a very realistic target by year end.
Mainstream chatter about the next product line of Ryzen chips is really starting to capture attention.
I am something of a tech head (my desktop PC is a self-build), and I regular browse a fair few tech sites. Many of them are now rife with attention on AMD and its Ryzen product line.

A potential bidder?
Even after having ramped from $1.75 in Jan'2016 to the $14s, AMD's market cap' is still pretty low at $14bn.
I'm increasingly suspicious we might see a bidder appear.
Here is a thought... AAPL to buy AMD.
