Reason:  we believe that major changes to the management team have led to a well-defined corporate turnaround strategy. A narrowed product focus allows AMD to redirect resources to high growth opportunities. AMD is well positioned from new product releases to capitalize on the high processing needs of emerging sectors, including VR, AR, AI, IoT. The high performing Naples release will allow the company to gain market share in the $18B server processor segment. In addition, AMD has established strategic partnerships with innovative firms, such as Google, Microsoft, Sony and Alibaba.
