AMD's Stock Price Skyrockets 52% in a Single Day

Recommended Posts

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the stock graph what so ever. You can change the time span on it, and it contains all the numbers you need, without even looking at the graph. If people are too dumb to understand such a simple graph, then I'm sure they have absolutely no use for the information it holds, as extremely dumb people shouldn't be in the stock trading market to begin with.

 

Page up and page down of graph nonsense. Graphs should always be made to suit the need of the user. In this case the smaller changes are the important ones. Not a 5 year span. Having it start on 0 would make the graph less detailed and/or much bigger. It makes no sense. Learn to read a graph. You should have it in math class in 4-5th grade in elementary school. I guess they are more qualified for stock trading than people whining about the graph in here :dry:

The graph could go back a little further, but that's just to change the perspective, not the facts.

I root for the red team so this is good news to me.

Yeah! :D You get it!

 

I know this whole graph thing is over but I just wanted to make sure you got this. You need to be aware that the people looking at stock charts are not necessarily concerned with what the price is. The graphs are designed to illustrate the PERCENTAGE change in price, not the actual price. If a stock jumped from $1 to $1.50 that's not much to you or me but to a stock trader that's tremendous and the graphs are created to illustrate the change in an exaggerated way. That way a move in the price of a stock that's trading at $100 will be interpreted similarly to a stock trading at $1... in terms of percentage change.

Someone please ELI5 how to stocks.

In stocks there is a primary market, and secondary market.  Primary market, you trade with the company directly.  Secondary market, you trade with a financial institution who owns the stock of a particular company.  In the primary market, there is a minimum purchase required (1 million dollars usually) and a minimum hold time.  In the secondary market, there is no limitations but the financial institution may charge fees.  For all of us (probably), we trade in the secondary market.

 

To trade in the secondary market, you have to get a brokerage account.  Not all brokerage accounts are the same, some are reputable, some flat out suck.  Reputable ones can fill your order instantly, but usually charge higher transaction fees.  Ones that suck might not have the stock available to you, place limitations, or cannot buyback your stock in time, but usually have smaller transaction fees.

 

Each brokerage account handles transactions differently.  I used Fidelity for a while.  You deposit money into the Fidelity account, type in the symbol you want to buy and *click*.  They charge 20 dollars per transaction and takes a total of about 1 week to "settle."

No one has ever described it in such an easy way. Thanks!

People have a tendency to not read, and even if they do read the title, a person is far more likely to remember something they see (an image) rather than something they read. So when someone tries to recall the information in a week there is a very good chance they will have forgotten the exact number, but the graph will be more memorable and thus they will likely "remember" a larger increase as the graph shows a >50% increase. 

 

Edit: I worded that horribly, I apologize. 

so instead of reading the numbers on the graph they are going to take a tape measure and be like the ratio between the axis and the bottom and the axis and the peak is 500 to 1 so this graph indicates 500% increase and I also covered my eyes when clicking on this post to not see the 52% in the title

No, they're going to take a look at the graph and when they try to recall the information they're going to remember what the graph looked like, which at a cursory glance indicates an increase FAR greater than just 50%.

You'd be amazed how many people, even on this forum either don't read and just look at the pictures, or read/focus on one line and ignore everything else. But that's not the entire problem, the bigger issue (at least on this forum) is that people have a tendency (myself included) to make a comment based on something they've read or remember from elsewhere on the forum. And, unfortunately, most people don't have eidetic memories, however visual representations of information are far easier to recall making it likely for someone to incorrectly recall the data. 

 

I don't think the graph is really that big of an issue, but it isn't the best possible representation either.

The graph is intended for people who are trading stocks. Not people who want an actual indication as to how the company is doing. The difference is important.

If you are mislead by that graph, you are too dumb to do stock trading. And tie your own shoes.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves here, AMD's market value may have climbed to over $3 billion, but Nvidia is still at nearly $20 billion. 

 

I'm just saying it started while I own GTX card myself...

To chime in on the topic of the graph, really those who don't understand what the numbers mean in it are unconcerned with the topic. If they want to fake knowledge by talking about the graph without fully parsing it, that's on them.

As everyone has noted, the stock price fell about 14% on Monday. However, today it's rebounded another 8% upwards. AMD stock is currently sitting at $3.72 USD per share.

 

That's still a good upward trend. Obviously this is just a microtrend over the last 3 business days, it will be interesting how this plays out over the longer term.

It's typical of stock that's suddenly jumped in price, some people who might not have noticed the price jump right away were cashing in their winnings and causing the drop. That left a bit of room for the price to increase again.

Good :)

 

Looks like its staying around 3.6 right now.

I am looking at the stock prices graphs for years

 

and 3.6 dollars per stock is really low when you compare the prices when it was the dot com boom

 

almost 93 dollars per stock in May 5 2000 almost 16 years ago.

That's called a biased/misleading graph...

This is the stuff you get taught in elementary school.

 

This graph illustrates a 500% increase not a 50% increase

CgrGDHXW4AAKHuU.jpg

 

That is called bias and misleading.

 

500% =/= 50%

How do you get 500% off the graph, given the Y axis starts at 2.5?

Well I calculated that based on the 140 million trading volume yesterday times 1.37, but I might be doing that wrong.

Volume traded is the amount of shared traded in period. 

 

You want to take the shares outstanding and multiply them by the new value, and then minus the old value to get you capital gains/difference.
