AMD stock has more than doubled this year and is trading at a nearly 12-year high. That makes AMD the best performer in the S&P 500. AMD (AMD) recently passed heart pump maker Abiomed (ABMD) to take over the top spot.
AMD’s gains are partly coming at the expense of semiconductor giant Intel (INTC), whose stock is only up about 2% this year on concerns about lower profit margins and possible product delays.
Intel is also reeling from the scandal that led to the resignation of CEO Brian Krzanich two months ago. (He had an improper relationship with an employee.)
Renaissance in the PC business
But what’s really interesting about AMD is that it is benefiting from increased demand for PCs. Yes. PCs! Even though we live in a smartphone world, lots of businesses still need PCs and AMD’s Ryzen chips have been taking market share from Intel.

Thursday was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street, as market participants were uncertain how to respond to conflicting messages on the geopolitical and macroeconomic fronts. By most readings, the U.S. economy continues to do well, but a delay in trade talks between leaders of the U.S. and China spurred more nervousness about whether tariffs could hold back economic growth globally. Some bad earnings results also weighed on investor sentiment. Dollar General (NYSE:DG), Cloudera (NYSE:CLDR), and Smart & Final Stores (NYSE:SFS) were among the worst performers. Here’s why they did so poorly.
