Just a day after Intel's Q2 performance report, it's now AMD's turn

Yesterday, DailyTech reported on Intel's Q2 earnings. The company posted Q2 revenue of $8.7 billion USD, operating income of $1.35 billion USD and net income of $1.3 billion USD.

Today, it's archrival AMD's turn with regards to financial performance for the quarter. AMD recorded revenue of $1.378 billion USD, an operating list of $457 million USD and a net loss of $600 million USD.

This compares with revenue of $1.216 billion USD and operating income of $102 million USD for Q2 2006.

"While we made solid progress in the second quarter across a number of fronts, we must improve our financial results," said AMD CFO Robert J. Rivet. "We achieved a 12 percent sequential revenue increase, improved the gross margin and won back microprocessor unit and revenue market share."

AMD appears to have worked out problems that it had in late 2006 with OEM/channel processor distribution and attributes 38 percent sequential increase in microprocessor unit shipments to orders from Toshiba, an increased adoption of AMD-based platforms and strong initial sales of the ATI Radeon HD 2000 graphics family.

"We continue to focus on realigning our business model and reducing our capital expenditures and cost structure in the second half of the year," said Rivet.

AMD has 7.5 billions in liabilities for a 8 billions market cap company

This is why posters need to really learn about these comments first...
Market Cap = Share Price x Number of shares
In other words, it's just a function of the share has nothing to do with what the company is actually worth.
As a matter of fact, a low Market Cap is a very good possible buying signal for a company as it sometimes says that the stock is undervalued

Market cap is what the market value them at. The market value AMD to be a 8 billion dollar company. The market value Intc to be a 146 billions dollar company. Hence if you want to buy AMD you must pay a minimum of 8 billions. However something you can get it less then the market price.

This is wrong as After Hours trading, AMD is at $16.50/share and there are 550.44 shares outstanding.
That's a Market Cap of $9 Billion...
BTW, did you just skip over the Enterprise value of $11 Billion?
