- Investors continued to sell shares of AMD on Friday after the chipmaker issued weak preliminary third-quarter results.
- AMD pointed to slumping PC demand and overall supply chain issues.
- Shares of other chipmakers, including Intel and Nvidia, were also down.
The chipmaker cut its sales forecast on Thursday for the third quarter, blaming a larger-than-expected decline in the personal computer market and supply chain issues.
AMD now expects preliminary quarterly revenue of about $5.6 billion thanks to "reduced processor shipments." That's more than $1 billion below the $6.7 billion it had previously forecast as the midpoint of its revenue expectations for the quarter.
The company also said its non-GAAP gross margin is expected to come in around 50%, while it had previously expected gross margin to be closer to 54%.
Several firms, including Piper Sandler, Stifel, KeyBanc Capital Markets and Mizuho Securities cut their price targets for AMD in notes to clients Friday, though each of those maintained a buy or overweight rating.
