Here’s how the company did:
- Earnings: 13 cents per share, adjusted, vs. 16 cents per share as expected by analysts, according to Refinitiv.
- Revenue: $1.93 billion, vs. $1.86 billion as expected by analysts, according to Refinitiv.
The chip-maker’s revenue grew 26% in the quarter, which ended on June 27, according to a statement. Revenue from computing and graphics products for desktop PCs and laptops came to $1.37 billion, up 45% and meeting expectations of analysts surveyed by FactSet.
The company’s guidance for the fiscal third quarter was $2.55 billion in revenue, give or take $100 million. Analysts surveyed by Refinitiv had been looking for $2.32 billion in revenue for the quarter.
AMD now expects 32% revenue growth for the year, up from 25% growth the company predicted in April. Analysts polled by Refinitiv had expected 25% growth.
The results come days after competitor Intel said it was delaying the release of products featuring 7-nanometer transistors until 2022 or 2023. AMD already sells 7-nanometer chips. Last Friday, after Intel made its announcement, AMD stock rose almost 17%, while Intel fell more than 16%. AMD stock is up 47% since the start of the year.
Executives will discuss the results with analysts on a conference call starting at 5:30 p.m. Eastern time.
