According to financial analysts, AMD is gaining more market share
than Intel, and expected to gain more share in 2007. "We expect momentum to favor AMD," Yeung said in a research note. "While the shares have already had a significant move so far in the second half of the year, we believe additional upside is likely through year-end." "When AMD reports third-quarter earnings, it is expected to post a 50 percent rise in profit excluding special items to US$115.3 million, or US23 cents per share, on revenue of nearly US$1.31 billion, according to Reuters Estimates."
