Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Gains 6% as Cryptocurrency Demand Grows
Cryptocurrency mining demand sharply reverses desktop GPU sales trends in 2Q17; AMD and NVIDIA are now on allocation.
Meetings with desktop graphics card manufacturers indicated a sharp reversal in sales trends expected for the seasonally weaker 2Q, with surging demand from cryptocurrency miners in China and Eastern Europe since early May now expected to drive 10-20% q/q unit sales growth this quarter, up significantly from prior forecasts for a 10-15% q/q decline.
