AMD (AMD - Get Report) fell after it reported weaker-than-expected revenue on Thursday, as the PC market continues to decline. AMD expects third-quarter revenue of approximately $1.27 billion, down 10% sequentially. AMD previously expected revenue to fall 1%, plus or minus 3%, sequentially. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters were looking for sales of $1.38 billion. "The lower than anticipated preliminary revenue results are primarily due to weaker than expected demand across all product lines caused by the challenging macroeconomic environment," AMD said in a press release. AMD, which reports official results Oct. 18, fell 15% this week to close at $2.74.
