Nearest Resistance: $4

Nearest Support: N/A

Catalyst: H-P Sympathy Trade

Advanced Micro Devices (AMD - Get Report) is seeing a similar fate today, shoved lower by the HP earnings release and a big technical break in shares. AMD had been looking promising for the last few weeks, forming the early stages of a tower bottom -- a bullish reversal pattern that shareholders were desperate for.

But the pattern never triggered. Instead, AMD fell through $4 support for the last two straight weeks, making a new 52-week low today.

To be sure, the chip business isn't in the some straits as the PC-making business. That said, until AMD can catch a bid, I'd recommend staying away from this stock.
