A sub-10 dollars? Yes pretty much. Take AMD out of the picture for a second. ANY stock under 10 dollars should be treated the same way.

There are just much better places to put your money is the real point.

So you can mindlessly invest in a company that's over $10 share and that's better than investing in a company that is sub-$10 even though you have a good understanding of that company at the moment? That is senseless.

Where did I say to mindlessly invest in a company over ten dollars a share? All I said is investing 101 states not to invest in companies at sub-10 dollars.

Yeah, and investing 101 would have surely screwed lots of people out of the money they made from Investing in Apple in the early 2000's. Those people, buying tons of stock at 6-7 bucks a share, are now multi-millionaires, sipping champagne and laughing at poor people.

My argument is that "rules of thumb" are inconsequential when you account for knowledge of a situation. It might be true that lots of sub-$10 stocks don't display long-term (or even short-term) stable growth, but that doesn't mean all sub-$10 stocks follow suit. That's where research and understanding of a situation play a part, and negate any rules-of-thumb or bulk trends. You're taking the same risk with investing in an expensive stock--take amazon for example. It showed lots of promise and growth for quite some time, but over the last six months the stock has lost over half its value (result of a lot of things, one of which is a poor demonstration of direction). That's equally risky, and a much more expensive lesson to learn. My point is in research and understanding. With that, you can make equally strong investment choices regardless of what the price of the stock might be.

Good man. I recommended that my dad pick up a butt-load shares of Intel stock back when it was $20/share. Definitely nice to know that I'm doing my duty as a good son. Now, if only he'd bought a few thousand shares of AMD @ $4.40 like I told him...ah well, at least I bought some AMD then.

That doesn't mean AMD can't lift themselves back up as has already been said. There are good risks and bad risks this is a bad risk end of story. No matter how much you like their products personally you need to be careful with your own money. If you let your feelings for the companies products get in the way you will lose money.

Says the guy who has an intel PC, "should have been a bulldozer" thumb.gif


Anyway first rule of thumb is, dont take investment advice from a forum.

tongue.gif Having said that, AMD stock at $4 would have been a steal, at $7.50, still OK...personally I think it will go to about $9 based on their current performance, If trinity really takes off and all their console deals go through then potentially up to $15, but we wont know that for another half year.

Of course not, they're just corporations who want money. I don't see why people read into it any more deeply than that.
