Anyone play stock market with AMD? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Well AMD is a gamble but it's the only one of your list I've invested in personally.

IF Bulldozer come out with strong performance vs Intel, of course AMD will go up. If not, you probably won't loose much.

Betting on product launches is risky though I did well buying AAPL in 2006 right before iPhone was announced. ;-)

Will someone come out on top in the ssd race? Talking about performance and price point and size. Only ones I know in the game are Intel, OCZ, Corsair.. any guesses on who will take the lead?

Also, it seems then that intel is the most stable investment I could make

I mean..all of the SSD manufacturers use the same crap (Sandforce) except for Crucial who has their own system. If I had to pick one SSD manufacturer, it would be Crucial because they are semi-unique compared to the rest.

That is true I think Crucial is still a better choice for his needs since they focus in this field, but you are correct!

I think Nvidia would be a good choice although it may be a riskier investment that could pay well.

Also look into Samsung.. They are doing well and I foresee great things from them!

Had Sirius before the merger. Got some free shares from said merger but overall in two years their performance never really thrilled me, even after the merger. Problem is that satellite radio is and always will be a niche market. It will never fully replace terrestrial radio and they will never expand to anything beyond satellite. Sold the shares last June.

I just don't see satellite radio expanding much.. Maybe slightly over the next couple years (possibly) but I see internet radio being the next big thing like pandora and other mobile apps that you can use for free.
