AMD seen topping expectations as new processors take Intel share

AMD's (AMD) new processors will enable it to gain significant market share from Intel (INTC) in the desktop, notebook and server markets, predicted research firm Jefferies. The firm raised its estimates for AMD and expects the chip maker's 2017 results to beat expectations by a significant amount. AMD ZEN PROCESSORS: AMD's new Ryzen processors are 52% faster than the company's previous generation of processors, according to Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis. Moreover, AMD's benchmarks show that its R7 1800X processor "performs better than Intel's Core i7 6900K at less than half the price," the analyst stated. Given these metrics, AMD's market share gains will accelerate. AMD is looking to eventually obtain market share of at least 10%, wrote Lipacis. ESTIMATES, TARGET: AMD will obtain 1% of the desktop, notebook and server markets this year and 4% of those markets in 2018, the analyst forecast. He thinks that the company's new higher margin processors will boost its gross margins by three percentage points this year, and he projects that AMD's 2017 earnings per share will beat expectations by 17c. Lipacis raised his price target on the shares to $16 from $13. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, AMD jumped 6% to $14.34 per share. Over the last year, AMD shares have surged nearly 400%, as the stock was trading at $2.83 as of April 1, 2016.

AMD price target raised to $17 from $14 at Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Matthew Ramsay raised his price target on AMD (AMD) to $17 from $14 following investor meetings with CEO Lisa Su. Ramsay said the company is re-emerging as a competitive second source to Intel (INTC), its gradual GPU unit share recovery should be supplemented by the Vega launch in higher value tier markets, and the company is focused on delivering a multi-generational roadmap with the customer backing and foundry partners to do so. Ramsay reiterated his Buy rating on AMD shares.

Jefferies sees more share gains for AMD, ups target to $16
Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis raised his price target for AMD (AMD) to $16 from $13 citing better visibility into the Ryzen 7 high-performance and Ryzen 5 power-performance desktop processor launch. The chipmaker closed Friday down 16c to $13.49. As AMD continues to roll out its Ryzen product offerings, incremental share gains will continue to expand in the near term, Lipacis tells investors in a research note. He believes the company's "ability to price between-the-seams" while achieving competitive performance will result in "meaningful" share gains from Intel (INTC) in the Desktop, Server, and Notebook markets starting in 2017. The analyst upped his estimates for AMD and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Pivotal Research analyst Brian Wieser downgraded Alphabet (GOOGL) to Hold from Buy citing brand safety concerns and valuation following the recent rally in the shares. News last week that Havas, the sixth largest global media network, is pulling its spending from Google's YouTube and Google Display Network in the U.K. because Google was "unable to provide specific reassurances, policy and guarantees that their video or display content is classified either quickly enough or with the correct filters" is a big deal, Wieser tells investors. 2. Canaccord analyst Lynne Collier downgraded Sonic (SONC) to Hold from Buy, citing challenging industry sales, the potential for Street estimates to be too high in the midst of soft sales, a lack of upcoming catalysts, and increasing competition from non-traditional venues such as convenience stores. 3. Piper Jaffray analyst Alexander Potter downgraded Mobileye (MBLY) to Neutral saying that while demanding a higher buyout price may be justified, he "begrudgingly" concluded that the price Intel (INTC) is paying for the company is fair. The analyst raised his price target for Mobileye shares to $63.54 from $60 to reflect Intel's offer. 4. Susquehanna analyst Sam Poser downgraded Caleres (CAL) citing the company's "disappointing" results and his belief that the company will not be able to overcome industry headwinds. 5. Goldman Sachs analyst Conor Fitzgerald downgraded Stifel Financial (SF) to Neutral from Buy while raising his price target for the shares to $59 from $58. The analyst believes LPL Financial (LPLA), a stock he upgraded this morning to Conviction Buy, offers more upside at current valuations.
