NEW YORK, Jan. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (“AMD” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AMD). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether AMD and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On January 3, 2018, following reports that processor chips manufactured by AMD’s competitor, Intel Corporation, contained a major security flaw—known as the “Spectre” vulnerability—AMD advised investors that while its own chips were vulnerable to one variant of Spectre, there was “near zero risk” that AMD chips were vulnerable to the second Spectre variant. Then, on January 11, 2018, post-market, AMD acknowledged that its chips were, in fact, susceptible to both variants of the Spectre security flaw. On this news, AMD’s share price has fallen sharply during intraday trading on January 12, 2018.
