The Closing Print live trading and financial blog during market hours.


A review Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) confirmed a few criteria after seeing tons of volume in Septemeber dated options, EPS growth, and institutional interest is increasing. The latter keeps adding shares to their portfolios. Earnings growth, the lifeblood of any company is 159%. That’s incredible.

Marketsmith AMD Weekly Chart Data

We were impressed with EPS growth, so we dug a little deeper. With a composite rating of 99, AMD handily beats all of its competition. Sales, Margins and Return of Equity SMR is an “A.” SMR is a Proprietary rating system based upon recent earnings changes and price-performance indicating possible or potential relative price performance over the next 12 months. Over those 12 months (4 quarters) AMD beat analyst estimates.
