Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is an industry-leading producer of computer processors and related technologies. AMD now serves both the domestic and corporate tech markets, bringing a host of state-of-the-art microprocessors, graphics processors, motherboard chipsets and many more parts to market.

In 2014, AMD underwent a significant reorganisation of its operations, reshuffling into two distinct business divisions – Computing and Graphics. The move was designed to refocus and double down on the firm’s unique selling points. In 2020, AMD forked out a reported $50 billion to acquire Xilinx in an all-stock purchase. Xilinx specialised in programmable logic devices, with their expertise brought in-house.

AMD went public way back in July 1982, when it was floated at a share price of $4.20. During the dot-com boom, the AMD share price was worth upwards of $44 per share, but the great recession of 2008 brought a significant downturn to lows of $2.13 per share in December 2008.

It was one-way traffic upwards following the economic recovery and even in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic the AMD share price remained buoyant, scaling an all-time high of $164.46 per share in November 2021. However, the rampant global inflation has caused a retraction of AMD shares down to $85 per share as of late July 2022.

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) is firmly cemented in the S&P 500 – the top 500 most valuable companies listed on the American stock markets. Consequently, the AMD share price can be a substantial barrier to entry for first-time investors. With contracts for difference (CFD) trading platforms, it’s possible to speculate on the price of AMD shares using leverage. This allows you to deposit a small percentage of your entire market exposure upfront, minimising the initial outlay. Bear in mind that leverage not only maximises potential profits but prospective losses too.

The beauty of CFD trading is that you can speculate on falling assets too. The short-selling function allows you to profit if the price of AMD shares falls rather than rises.
