Default AMD: Analysts expect losses to continue

Senior Semiconductor Analyst for Wedbush Morgan, Mr. Patrick Wang cited: "Contrary to the Barcelona ramp, we highlight management’s surprisingly clean execution of Shanghai and Istanbul [expected early in Q3]. However, we think management provides mixed commentary with conservative Q2 revenue guidance offset by positive comments in the march towards profitability - targeting Q2 op-ex of $500mn enabling break-even with $1.3bn in revs and 40% GM."

It looks like AMD experienced a nice rebound on both notebook and desktop demand caused by a market recovery, sales success of the Dragon platform [Phenom II + 7-series chipset + ATI 4800 graphics] and China's Stimulus Plan. In fact, AMD experienced shortages of desktop chipsets, for the first time in couple of years - actually, since that ill-fated contract with Dell, that caused the company to dry- bleed its Channel in order to fulfill those 3M CPUs ordered. By some accident, Core 2 Duo appeared at the same time and the rest is history.
