$AMD's acquisition of $XLNX was one of the best moves Lisa could've possibly made and the decision will pay large dividends for years to come.

here, well illustrated in this graphics from $AMD's latest financial analyst day:

Zynq and Versal SoCs are Xilinx's products. now you should get a picture of just how huge this acquisition is in terms of future growth potential beyond industries $AMD used to be in.

big game changer widening the product portfolio and growth trajectory for $AMD instantly! at this point, there's a large overlap between $AMD and $QCOM in terms of why I initially bought Qualcomm in my portfolio (mostly 5G and IoT thesis) and so I plan to sell my $QCOM for $AMD as I'm much more bullish on $AMD and Lisa! large things coming for $AMD and $NVDA in terms of edge computing, FPGAs and OpenRANs. here, some snippets from both suggesting how big of a deal O-RANs are:

results of $XLNX acq already paying off for $AMD:

on O-RANs from $NVDA's last earnings call:

for reference, a recent report suggests O-RAN market should be worth $32B in 2030, representing a 42% CAGR between now and then.

Great article. I bought more $TXN today. Great earnings and I especially appreciate that they do spend more on Capex and expect to do so in the future. Reinvestment into the business is more imporant than payouts to shareholders/buybacks.

Broken out by Company:

Broken out by ETF:

Cathie Wood on 12/18 regarding when Ark invests in FAANG stocks:

"As a bull market extends, we do move into more 'cash-like' equities; they would be the less volatile stocks.

Certainly FAANG & $MSFT fit that.

We would do that increasingly."

Interesting to see them rotate into more traditional tech names like $GOOG and $AAPL. Seems like they're not the only ones thinking we may be reaching a peak soon.

EPS: .41 (.35 est.)
REV: $2.8 B ($2.56 B est.)

Last year EPS: .18 / $1.8 B

25% YoY growth

$AMD pulling a classic $AAPL earnings here.

Great earnings and major buyout of rival chipmaker Xilinx for 35B. Prime for putting itself in position for taking on Intel for the next decades.

Stock down 5% 😂 $XLNX up 10%

A part of the market that I don't think $MSFT can capture are contractors. As the number of freelance designers, developers, etc increase (currently ~35% of the workforce generally, across industries) the need for internal comms between full time and freelance emerges. Slack does a better job connecting members of a company with another company and allowing them to communicate directly. Example: when we do a pen test with a security firm they plug into a private $WORK channel on our slack. It's temporary and extremely effective. Not only does $MSFT not allow this but it helps slack grow across organizations (as opposed to just within them).
