Famed chartist Marc Chaikin says there are a number of indicators that struggling Superior Micro Gadgets (AMD) is one inventory that traders ought to keep away from.
“This is not Jim Cramer pushing the inventory down. That is dangerous fundamentals,” Chaikin, CEO of Chaikin Analytics, mentioned at TheStreet’s Monetary Success Methods symposium. “[AMD] has gotten nowhere for the final a number of months. It is nonetheless bearish.”
AMD has been plunging ever for the reason that chipmaker reported its fiscal third-quarter earnings on Oct. 24. The inventory has fallen greater than 20% up to now 5 days and closed at $10.89 on Monday, down some eight% on the day.

The Energy Gauge Ranking relies on technical, elementary and sentiment indicators — and in AMD’s case, loads seems dangerous:
“Twenty components within the mannequin all stacked up in opposition to AMD,” he mentioned. “One thing is not proper.”
