AMD shares up 8 percent on Dell takeover rumor

Posted on Thursday, February 17 2011 @ 14:45:48 CET by

AMD shares have soared over 8 percent this week thanks to the launch of the new Opteron processors but also due to an unlikely rumor about a takeover from Dell:
Shares of AMD are rising again this morning, up 2.3 percent to $8.81, after a 4.2 percent pop Tuesday on rumors that computer maker Dell may buy the Sunnyvale chip maker. Last month, CEO Dirk Meyer resigned in a surprise move, apparently forced out by a board that’s unhappy with the company’s lack of presence in tablets and mobile. (See Quoted: on AMD CEO’s ouster.) Last week, the company announced that two more top executives were leaving, including its COO. Bloomberg quotes Wedbush Securities analyst Patrick Wang: “There is no management team there.” But Wang says it’s “far-fetched” that the company is putting itself up for sale, and others point to Dell’s long history of using Intel chips.
