Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) stock surged to a record high after the company’s second-quarter earnings report. With a recent pullback in its shares, some investors may be wondering: Is AMD stock a buy right now?

AMD has staged an amazing turnaround over the past several years, fueled by new products and improved profitability. And AMD stock has climbed as a result.

AMD competes with Intel (INTC) in making central processing units, or CPUs, for personal computers and servers. It also rivals Nvidia (NVDA) in the market for graphics processing units, or GPUs, for PCs, gaming consoles and data centers.

Founded in May 1969, AMD went public in September 1972. AMD shifted to a fabless semiconductor business in March 2009 by spinning off its factories into a joint venture called GlobalFoundries.

Chief Executive Su Making A Difference

Current Chief Executive Lisa Su took the reins in October 2014. She shepherded the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company into a new era with its Ryzen PC processors and Epyc server chips in 2017.

Under her supervision, AMD jumped ahead of Intel in making CPUs at smaller node sizes, giving its products an edge in speed and performance. AMD is making chips at 7-nanometer scale, while Intel has struggled to make chips at 10-nanometer scale. AMD is now developing chips at 5-nanometer scale. Circuit widths on chips are measured in nanometers, which are one-billionth of a meter.

This has helped AMD take market share from rival Intel in PCs and servers.

Su also is overseeing a potentially transformative acquisition. On Oct. 27, AMD announced an all-stock deal worth $35 billion to buy Xilinx (XLNX) to expand its growing data-center business. However, AMD stock fell on the Xilinx acquisition news. Critics said the acquisition complicates AMD’s “clean” investor story around market share gains in processors.
