100 percent red
It's been exactly a week since the last HEXUS.sharewatch, one in which AMD has received a general thumbs up over the launch of its new generation of GPUs.
It must be rather galling to AMD and its shareholders, therefore, to see its share price fall by nearly 15 percent in that time. We can only assume that the apparently successful launch was not enough to compensate for other concerns investors might have.
There was a general drop of around four percent in the US markets and, for the first time, not one of our list of companies managed to buck that trend and stay in the green.
The distributors Ingram Micro and Tech Data were the least into the red and, to complete the reversal of fortunes from a week ago, NVIDIA's shares fell by less than the average.
