AMD stock surging to new record after Xilinx earnings

Shares of Advanced Micro Devices Inc.

are up more than 6% in Thursday afternoon trading and on track to close at a fresh record. The stock recently changed hands at $104.45, making this the first session in which AMD’s stock has ever traded above $100 intraday. The rally builds on a 7.6% post-earnings run during Wednesday’s session and comes following a strong report from Xilinx Inc.

after Wednesday’s closing bell. AMD is in the process of acquiring Xilinx in a deal it expects to close by the end of the year, and Xilinx showed strong traction in its business Wednesday after delivering what Cowen & Co. analyst Matthew Ramsay called “well-above-consensus revenue.” The company grew revenue by 21% “despite ongoing industry-wide supply chain challenges,” it said in its release. Xilinx shares are up 5% in Thursday trading.
