Top 10 High Tech Stocks To Watch Right Now

Monday started the new week on a positive note, as the stock market once again recovered from early declines to post advances. The Dow Jones Industrials extended its string of record closes to 12 consecutive days in the wake of favorable comments from Warren Buffett about the valuation of the market. Moves within the Trump administration to transfer spending to the Defense Department also bolstered the overall market mood. In addition, good news from certain companies helped to sustain positive sentiment overall, and Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), Windstream Holdings (NASDAQ:WIN), and Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO) were among the top performers on the day. Below, we’ll look more closely at these stocks to tell you why they did so well.

AMD climbs to a 10-year high

Advanced Micro Devices’ stock picked up 8%, reaching levels it hasn’t seen in nearly a decade. Early reports of pre-order activity for AMD’s new Ryzen central processing unit suggest it has been extremely strong, with some retailers having sold out of their allocations. The most powerful Ryzen 7 chip will be on sale starting this week, while slightly less powerful Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 models will get released over the course of 2017. Investors are growing increasingly confident that AMD can successfully compete against rival chipmaker Intelwith Ryzen, and AMD’s Polaris graphics products could also make the company more competitive against its key graphics rivals. With other chip offerings expected in 2017, investors believe that AMD CEO Lisa Su and her team of executives are making a difference and returning Advanced Micro Devices to relevance in the semiconductor industry.
